Tourists have been accused of having sex in the sand and ruining a Spanish beach.

One person on a beach near Barcelona said they had to pull up a beach chair after being unable to walk because of the disturbance caused by couples having sex.

Teniente de la Feria tourist chief Maria Leon sent a letter to the local government which was copied to Barcelona and state tourism bodies.

Tourists have been blamed for damages to the siesta-time resort.

Teniente de la Feria is on the north-west tip of Catalonia, near the town of Lloret de Mar in Andalucia province.

A local man said: “One young couple was enjoying themselves as he stripped down to just his underpants, but a man and a woman were getting some action up close.

“It made no difference where you were sitting and as one made contact with the other they could barely stop.”

A local councillor in Barcelona said tourists were disturbing people in the local area.

The region’s regional tourism office said some tourism spots could no longer be regarded as “luxury beaches” because of the high number of “sexually-oriented tourists”.
