Ibiza is a popular island in the Balearics that is known for its vibrant night life and stunning scenery. Spain along with the Balearic and Canary Islands are currently not included on the UK’s travel corridor list. The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) are advising against all non-essential travel to mainland Spain and its surrounding islands.

But the popular holiday destinations could soon be even more tricky to visit.

Ibiza along with the popular holiday resort of San Antonio are both facing 15-day lockdowns and night-time curfews unless its coronavirus cases begin to drop.

The two holiday hotspots are on a list of 15 places in the Balearic Islands that the regional government is considering tightening its regulations for early next week.

President of the Balearic Islands Francina Armengol said she would be contacting all of the "hot spot" municipalities to explain that urgent action may be taken once the new laws are approved on Monday.

Ms Armengol said the Ministry of Health intends to order special measures in the "hottest areas" or those with the highest incidence of coronavirus.

She said it was absolutely vital to get the coronavirus cases under control.

There are currently six active outbreaks in Majorca alone.

The Balearic president appeared at a press conference with Minister of Health, Patricia Gómez to announce the new security measures after a recording an increase in coronavirus infections in the Balearics.

Ms Gómez said the Balearic Islands would now have very stringent measures, very similar to those that existed during phase one of Spain's de-escalation period which started with the lifting of the State of Alarm on June 21.
