Partygoers attending bachelor and bachelorette parties in the Spanish resort town of Platja d’Aro may soon face hefty fines for inappropriate behaviour. The town, located on the Costa Brava, is about 60 miles northeast of Barcelona. The town has now implemented new rules keeping public indecency in mind. People can be fined up to 811 dollars, which is 750 euros, for walking or standing in public spaces without clothes, wearing costumes that depict genitalia or sex dolls, or if they are standing wearing only underwear. If the behaviour is more severe, it could result in fines up to 1,620 dollars, which is 1,500 euros, however, it is unclear exactly which precise actions would result in these heavier fines. Additionally, the regulations will also ban going shirtless or wearing only a bikini in urban areas that are away from the beach. These measures are set to take effect by the end of June. La Tomatina Date: Know History and Significance of the Popular Tomato Fight Festival of Spain.

Platja d’Aro has a population of 12,500, but on weekends in summer, the resort town sees around 150,000 visitors each day. According to reports, this week the town council approved the new fines and announced plans to hire more police to enforce them. While police can issue penalties, alleged offenders can appeal and do not have to pay up on the spot. At a recent press conference, the city's police chief mentioned an incident where a groom was taped to a lamp post while his friends were playing loud music and singing songs late into the night. This incident disturbed local residents.

The town's police force, currently 48 members strong, will get another 12 more officers during the peak tourist season. The peak tourist seasons include spring and early summer, when many weddings and their associated bachelor and bachelorette parties take place. Visitors who misbehave come from all over Spain and other countries. The town's permanent residents represent 80 different nationalities. Red Wine Floods Portuguese Streets of Anadia After Tanks Exploded at a Local Winery (Watch Viral Video).
