When you think of boozy summer holidays, you probably think Spain. In particular, you probably think Magaluf.
Magaluf is famous for its reputation as a party destination, but the locals aren't too pleased about that.
In attempt to curb drunk and disruptive behaviour, a whole 64 new rules have been implemented in the city, according to the Irish Independent.
The laws include fines for disorderly behaviour, which can go up to €600 for smaller indiscretions.
For major violations, you could be fined up to €3,000.
They're cracking down on things like drinking in the streets, under-age drinking and littering.
