A BEACH in Mallorca has banned people from urinating in the sea on pain of a 1,500-euro fine.
Bathers who answer the call of nature whilst swimming, or on the sand, will be forced to hand over a four-figure fine if they are caught.
The beach in question technically belongs to the village of Muro, but is between Alcúdia Pins and Port d'Alcúdia, near the S'Albufera nature reserve and Can Picafort.
Sunseekers interviewed on the beach call it 'daylight robbery' and queried the likelihood of getting caught.
Another girl said: “If they installed port-a-loos on the beach, or public toilets, it would be better, because what else are you supposed to do if you need to go?”
Muro has also threatened to fine bathers up to 3,000 euros for bringing animals onto the beach or listening to music without headphones.
