    smoking ban.

    What's the score on smoking in Spain?

    Does anybody here know if it is banned the same as here i.e. in bars, cafes etc.

    I've searched the interweb but getting conflicting info everywhere.

    It is but is hardly enforced in touristy places, unfortunately.

    Hope its banned indoors over there

    Yeah, we're off to Alcudia nxt week & I don't wannabe smelling minging!

    There is hardly any laws, People just smoke in the lobby of the hotels, in the bars ect!

    just got back from Andalusia and they smoke in the bars over there but not in restaurants, the government has not put ban on it..

    Shame.It's nice going out for a few and not ending up smelling like an ashtray.

    Brits abroad will probably make the most of it & chain smoke indoors while they can as well!

    Agreed, although smoking in bars i find less offensive then smoking in restaurants. At least you have a choice not to take kids into bars, bit difficult when they need feeding.

    Yeah I agree.

    Thing is we're off to a family-orientated hotel with a bar that's all inclusive & has enterrtainment so it's prob gonna be full of half-cut parents fagging away!:w00t:

    I'll have to find a little back-street bodega somewhere!!:thumbsup:

    I was in Spain last month and the bars were full of smokers but not any in the restaurant. Not convinced they enforce it anyway...

    we cam back from salou 4 weeks ago and the hotel had a smoking room but in resturants people were just smoking at their table.

    When i was in egypt, some man had a fag in his mouth, and as he was walkin into the hotel, he kept it unlit... UNTIL he got into the hotel :x

    The Spanish Government did bring in a smoking ban about 18 months ago, however, unlike Nanny State UK, they gave bar and restaurant owners a yes /no option, as most Spanish people havn't been brain washed by the media like they have here, they didn't bother with it.

    Smoking is now banned in Banks etc. in Spain.


    Of course the Spanish people don't go out getting rat arsed like the Brits every weekend, wrecking High Streets, perhaps it is time the Brits looked at their priorities.

    If you want to smoke outdoors in Spain, it's best to head for the hills and mountains.

    As everyone knows, the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain, which can soak your roll-up. :-D
