Sunny walk on the beach from Puente Romano to Marbella town center in May 2021. Covid restrictions on Costa del Sol and Spain in general are a bit more relaxed. The state of alert has ended and central government policy was not to renew this. This requires the regional governments to undertake future measures.
Andalusia is doing this in three phases. The first phase is called “Stabilization” and will be until the 31st of May 2021. There is no curfew and no restrictions on meetings. Wearing face-masks continues to be obligatory. The Andalusian border and the eight provincial perimeters are now open to travelers.
Marbella Restrictions Ease up
We hope this Marbella beach walk cheers you up. Here are some of the changes:
Bars, cafés and restaurants will be open until midnight with up to 8 clients seated at interior tables and 10 on exterior tables. Pubs i.e. bars with music license will be open to 02.00 am with same table number restrictions. Disco clubs can open except in level Extreme towns. In towns that are at a low level you can dance outside with a face mask.
At concerts, cinemas and theaters located in towns with Low and Medium groups must keep empty seats between each other. In High and Extreme level towns people should maintain 1.5m separation between groups. The venues will study the rules carefully and consult those already in the weekly updates for the levels of protection measures.
Thankfully on beaches and at swimming pools there are no more general time restrictions although groups must still maintain 1.5m distance between each other. Town halls may issue special rules as they did in the summer of 2020.
The government allows celebrations between 50 and 300 people inside, and 75 to 500 people outside depending on the level of the town. Groups of up to 8 people are allowed to sit in the interior of the restaurants. Sitting outside permits 10 people at one table.
