Mask wearing on the islands

Current mask wearing requirements are very strict on all the Spanish territory, you must wear your mask anytime you are outside your apartment or room, except in the following cases:

Swimming or sunbathing

Swimming is one of the few exceptions. While in the water, keep your distances. Sunbathing while staying on your towel or lounger is also a mask-free activity.

Eating or drinking

Of course, you will be able to remove your mask to eat or drink, but you must do so while seated, never walking or moving around.

In nature

While around Garajonay National Park or anywhere outside the villages, you are allowed to take your mask off. Once more, keep it close in case you need to put it back on while meeting another visitor.

Inside your car

If it is only you and your roommates, you can remove your mask while inside the car. Watch out! It is mandatory otherwise.
