Topless in Marbella and Puerto Banus

Postby Unicorn » Mon Jul 23, 2018 10:16 am

Hi

Maybe be aware of new laws in Marbella and Puerto Banus. You have to cover up or get fined!

http://www.surinenglish.com/local/20180 ... 959-v.html

This is the link which maybe will not work as I am hopeless :? :? at posting them but the full report is in sur in english, perhaps if it doesn't one of the local geniuses can make it a proper link :wave: :wave:

Fines are up to 750 euros and higher penalties for other 'street' offences.

HEY, THE LINK WORKS!!!!!

In today’s gender-conscious world let us hope any ban will apply to all.....I have no objection to a nice pair of bazookas but a hairy pair of tatooted man-boobs....

I think locals are fed up of having to view tourists bare bits. Some think it is disrespectful. In Portugal you are not allowed to drive with flip-flops on. Dangerous seemingly. I thought folk were a bit more cautious as well, skin cancer and all that

“. In Portugal you are not allowed to drive with flip-flops on.” Spain too....not specified as an offence but comes under the heading of not being in control, quite rightly IMHO.

Lots of Spanish women go topless at my local beaches, especially the over 50s and it's not unusual to see 60-70 year olds topless.
This old advert is very close to the truth

Like everything there is a time and a place. The beach is OK, Mercadonna is not.
Today I saw a young lady, oriental, in the briefest of brief, to be fair a beautiful body, but Mucky's is not the place, she was ejected to find some clothes. Most women wear more underware :)

Obviously Marbella have a killjoy in the council, a bit like Mojácar in Almería.
Rosa María Cano Montoya hates noise, people, especially ex-pats and holiday makers, it seems. They can be fined if they drink bottled water on the beach!!
Woe betide them if they carry a can of beer in the street.

Topless is fine at Vera Playa, of course, and bottomless, but most of those taking advantage are so wrinkly it's unpleasant.

I reckon this is aimed at the Hen/Stag groups. These groups have cased problems in Dublin so I can understand the Marbella Town Hall's new rules.

I would support any moves on noise reduction in Spain....the other evening there was a concert with full orchestra on a pier into the Mar Menor. We knew about it as we heard it easily from our house, some 500 metres away and with trees, houses and a big hotel in the way....going down to have a look we had to retreat 100 metres from the stage as we thought our ears would start bleeding! At concerts in Comares we often had to leave due to pain, and as for the feria over a kilometre from our house, the sound level was ideal for us, provided we stayed in our own garden.
Remember this is two of us in our 70s, hardly having ears like bats and in fact now often using the abominable live subtitling on the BBC to follow programmes!

We were all young once! I remember when we had live music every 2weeks on a Friday night in the local village hall, no booze, no drugs, just lots of fun, the oldies got it stopped because of noise...after that we had no where to go!...sorry off subject again but think it warrented an answer..
