Seven areas of Spain where toplessness is prohibited:

1. Malaga

Visitors to the Andalusia region should be aware that visiting Malaga without a shirt can be fined between £256 and £642 (€300 and €750) if they walk around the city in bikinis, swimsuits or pants only.

2. Marbella

Similar to Malaga, anyone staying in Marbella is allowed to wear bathing clothes by the pools, beaches, coast and promenade. Do it anywhere else and you could be fined between £256 and £642 (300-750 euros).

3. Palma de Mallorca

Despite the fact that the city is known as a hot vacation spot, the only place where tourists can go in swimwear is the beach promenade. A fine of 85 to 170 pounds (100 to 200 euros) is provided for this or walking the streets topless.

4. Ibiza - Sant Antoni de Portmany

Wearing clothes in this Spanish municipality is an "unavoidable duty" and if it is not observed, small fines without a set amount may be imposed.

5. Barcelona

Anyone caught walking the streets of the city topless or in a bikini can be fined between £102 and £428 (€120 to €500).

Fines for walking around completely or nearly naked range from £256 to £428 (€300 to €500) naked, while fines of £102 to £256 (€120 to €300) are more likely for walking around shirtless.

6. Salou

In the Catalan resort town, it is forbidden to go topless in local markets, the old town and surrounding urban areas, and fines for violating the rules range from £85 to £256 (100 to 300 euros).

7. Alicante

According to the Decree on Civil Coexistence, adopted in Alicante in 2022, "moving naked or with a fully exposed torso on public roads, except for beaches, adjacent promenades, swimming pools or other places where it is not expressly permitted."

Fines for violating this rule can reach £642 or €750.
