Restrictions on beach times

Is it true that the beach is off limits during certain hours?

Just watching an old Benidorm re-run (sad I know!) and two of the characters were fined for going onto the beach at night.

I honestly didn't know there were restrictions or is it just a bit of artistic licence?

Don't know about actually being on the beach but I know no swimming is allowed after midnight and you can be heavily fined if caught!

Probably a good idea Shezza or they'd be endless tanked up skinny-dippers drowning themselves every week! Lol

No one is allowed on the beach between 23.00 and 07.00 because of the cleaning that happens overnight.

Loads of rules about the beach, nobody at night, no beer during the day, there was a silly rule banning sand castles.

All the years I've been going and I didn't know that David. There must be notices but I honestly can't recall seeing any.

Suppose it deters people sleeping on the beach too.

No Sandcastles? How do the guys who do the sand sculptures get around that? :-)

Saw the police escorting a guy of the beach last week, at night, who'd strapped a hammock between two trees.

In this case I'm afraid ignorance of the laws is no defence. The Beach is off limits after 11pm as David says, and they can and will fne you if you get caught. This is Spain, not UK, they do things different here. lol
