Insider Advice & Travel Tips from Locals in Spain

Eating
Dinners are served late in Spain, usually between 8:30-11pm (20:30-23:00). Restaurants are usually open all day, serving breakfast between 8-10am and lunch between 1-3:30pm (13:00-15:30), with tapas being served throughout the day.

Tourist Cards
Most major cities have tourist cards available that offer discounts for transport, activities and restaurants within 1-3 days. The card usually costs between €10 and €60 (less for kids).

Nudist Beaches
Spain doesn’t have any specific federal bans on getting naked on its beaches, though some cities may designate certain areas where it’s prohibited. If you want to be sure, head to one of the 300 official nude beaches.

Smoking
Smoking is banned in all enclosed public places, including on public transportation. You are also not allowed to smoke outside healthcare facilities, schools and playgrounds. Hotels may have smoking rooms available if requested.
