It’s no surprise that each year Spain and its accompanying islands are one of the most popular holiday destinations for Britons, with sandy beaches and sunshine.
Every year, millions of people hop on a plane to enjoy the warm weather and relax.

However, Covid has meant things are changing all the time, including the restrictions placed on us.
Recently, new restrictions have been put in place on the country’s most popular islands as Covid cases soar, HertsLive reports.
The Spanish government has implemented a level system to identify the status of infections with level four meaning “very high”, at the moment some places are at level three.
The Balearic Islands, including Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera are in level three, while Tenerife, which is one of the Canary Islands, saw its own level of Covid rise to four on Monday January 17.
The rise in cases means pubs and restaurants will close at midnight and public transport is capped at 75 per cent capacity.
The rule of six now applies when meeting people outdoors and indoors, nightclubs are capped at 25% capacity, and vaccination passports must be shown to enter certain indoor venues.
On top of that, it means spas, hot tubs and saunas are also forced to close and there will be restrictions on the number of people allowed in outdoor pools and even beaches.
It has been reported that outdoor pools are capped at 33% capacity and beaches at 50%.
The other Canary Islands, including Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Palma and La Graciosa, have all been brought to a Covid level of three. La Gomera and El Hierro sit on level two.
Tier three restrictions mean beaches are capped at 50% capacity and you must book to visit. While bars and restaurants can stay open until 1 a.m., you can only gather in groups of six.
