The United Kingdom Issues Travel Recommendations For Spain’s Canary Islands.

According to a last-minute update from the UK’s travel department of the ‘Foreign Office’ (FCDO), the British authorities have “made no changes to the alert level for any region of Spain.” The note adds that “we continue to discourage all trips to Spain, except the essential ones, including the Balearic Islands”, but “excluding the Canary Islands.”

In its travel recommendation, the British foreign service said that, although the state of alarm declared by the Spanish Government on October 25, 2020, ended on May 9, 2021, some restrictions and curfews remain in force which may vary between regions.


However, the mayor of Benidorm Toni Perez has shared his disappointment at Spain missing out. He has insisted the Costa Blanca resort is “green” and the decision not to put it on a par with Portugal and Gibraltar is “incomprehensible”.

Mr. Perez has demanded a meeting with the UK Ambassador to Spain to find out more on the “reality” of the holiday destination.

Benidorm town hall officials pointed out the cumulative 14-day incidence per 100,000 inhabitants is just 43 cases in the Valencia region, which includes the Costa Blanca region.
