Not only Italy, also Spain has started with the handing out of fines to tourists that a beach chair, parasol, table or towel a place on the beach occupied. That writes Lonely Planet, The fine can be up to 720 euro.

It happens more and more often: beachgoers who early in the morning for himself a place on the beach of booking, there is an attribute to put down. Then they disappear, often for hours at a time, but have their own niche they have held securely. The local residents, other tourists and the local authorities resent all green and yellow, and in more and more places are new rules issued to an end.

In the coastal town of Gandia near Valencia is the police, for example, started with the removal of the abandoned belongings and handing out hefty fines to a total amount of 720 euro. The claim of a piece of private beach in a universally accessible area is not only forbidden, it hinders even the machines that the beaches in the morning, need to clean.

The action is so far a success because the amount of left behind stuff is enormously decreased (MS)
