If you're heading to Spain for a summer holiday this year, you might want to make note of where you can wear your bikini.
In some parts of Spain, such as Barcelona and Mallorca, you could land yourself in a spot of bother for wearing swimwear in certain areas.
In Barcelona, for example, you can only wear a bikini on the beach or at a swimming pool, so popping into the town centre in your swimwear is a big no-no.
In fact, those who break the rules could face a fine of up to €300 (£254).
Meanwhile in Mallorca, there are similar rules in place, with bikinis limited to beaches and pools only and fines of up to £500 for those who do not comply.
The restrictions also apply to swimming costumes and men wearing swimming trunks, too.
It's not the only rule tourists need to watch out for.
Earlier this week, we told you how holidaymakers could face fines of up to €300,000 (£250,000) for breaking new rules across the Balearic islands.
The new law prohibits holidaymakers from attending illegal parties in the region, and also applies to organisers, owners and collaborators of such gatherings.
The law, which comes into effect this week, could see fines ranging from €300 (£253) to €300,000 for those who do not comply.
The rules will not apply to family gatherings, with resident of the Balearic government, Francina Armengol, clarifying that an illegal party is an event that 'is held in a home, with a lucrative effect, to which people pay to go and that is marketed outside conventional channels'.
Meanwhile, Brits have been warned about a new alcohol cap on all-inclusive holidays in Spain.
Now, limits will be applied to the booze on specific all-inclusive breaks across the Balearic Islands, according to the local government.
Thomas Cook recently told customers that the new limit of six alcoholic drinks per person per day had previously been introduced and that they can only consume these beverages during mealtimes.
