Will the Balearic Islands be on the green list for summer holidays?
The Spanish islands remain on on the UK’s amber list, along with the rest of Spain.
This means Brits will need the following when returning to the UK:
- A negative test taken pre-arrival
- A mandatory ten-day quarantine at home
- Two Covid tests, taken on day two and day eight
However, while travelling to amber list destinations is not banned, the UK government warn against it.
Boris Johnson previously said: “It is not somewhere you should be going on holiday, let me be very clear about that.”
Benidorm’s mayor warned that Brits are unlikely to return to Spain before the end of July.
Toni Perez said “Our hope is that we can begin to receive British tourists at the end of July and start of August in the run-up to an autumn we hope will take place with the maximum normality possible.”

What are the travel restrictions for the Balearic Islands?
Spain lifted all restrictions for British travellers last month, meaning arrivals do not need a negative test or to quarantine.
However, the Balearics still enforce a negative Covid test on non-vaccinated arrivals.
On the islands, there is still a curfew from midnight to 6am, while just eight people can meet outdoors, or six indoors.
In Majorca and Ibiza, four people can dine together at restaurants and bars while this is six in Menorca and eight in Formentera.
Portugal has also been added to the amber list, despite only being included on the green list weeks ago.
