Party Doesn’t Stop for Spain’s Balearic Islands as Illegal Boat Parties Carry on as Normal

Although Spain has recently adopted a new set of regulations designed to curtail the rate of infection, the Balearic Islands seem to have disregarded these. The typical boat parties seen on the coasts of the Balearic Islands are still running with dozens of people partying in close proximity.

THE video, released by Cadena Ser and featured above, shows how three party boats are carrying on as normal with at least 30 people on board. The boats are navigating near Palma de Mallorca and loud music can be heard from the speakers.

Even from afar, you can see how dozens of partygoers are enjoying their time on the boat, with no masks and no social distancing. Since yesterday, the Balearic Islands prohibited these types of parties on boats and maritime vessels.

The BOIB, (Official State Gazette of the Balearic Islands) clearly states that “The activity of the establishments that carry out the activities like, dance halls, discos, concerts and cocktail bars are suspended. Likewise, the carrying out of activities similar to those described in any other type of establishment, including parties in swimming pools or outdoor facilities of hotel establishments, as well as in maritime vessels (party boats or similar).”
