Summer is fast approaching, and there's one island that's firmly on the list if you're looking to party in the sunshine; Ibiza.
The Spanish hotspot is world-famous for its amazing pool parties, lavish beach clubs and gorgeous beaches, so it's no surprise that millions of Brits flock there every year.
However, in recent years new rules have been brought in for tourists, as local authorities look to crackdown on boozy antics, loud music and the kind of behaviour that has some destinations asking Brits to stay away.

From limits on all-inclusive drinks to new smoking bans and hefty fines for rule-breakers, there are plenty of new restrictions Brits need to know.
We take a look at the tourist rules you'll want on your radar below…
All-inclusive drinks limits
Gorgeous Italian holiday hotspot is introducing new restrictions for tourists
Brits heading to San Antonio in Ibiza will face limits on how many drinks they can enjoy in all-inclusive packages.
New rules mean that you're now limited to six alcoholic drinks per day, which are distributed evenly between lunch and dinner. That means that you'll get three drinks per meal – and you'll need to pay for any other alcohol you want to drink throughout the holiday.
The new law isn't just in Ibiza, but also applies to parts of Majorca.
A total of 28 beaches on the Balearic Islands have now banned people from smoking in a bid to improve people's health and slash the litter problem of cigarette butts being left on the sand.
In Ibiza, this includes Playa de Santa Eulalia del Río and Playa de Talamanca.
The Foreign Office warns Brits that there are "limits on the sale and availability of alcohol" in San Antonio, among other resorts in the Balearics.
This includes restrictions on happy hours, and open bars – for example with all-you-can-drink deals in certain timeframes – as well as the sale of alcohol in vending machines.
Pub crawls and party boats are also included in the restrictions. The law also bans 'off licence' sales between 9:30pm and 8am.
Fines for illegal parties
Clubbers could be hit with hefty fines if they head to illegal parties while on holiday.
The Balearic authorities are cracking down on 'unlicensed events' and local police have been given powers to shut parties down.
They are also able to issue fines, with penalties of up to £25,000 for those who run the unauthorised gatherings, as well as everyone involved including organising, marketing, advertising and even participants.
In fact, the Foreign Office already warns Brits of the tough rules.
Its Spain travel advice reads: "There have been a number of serious accidents involving people attending irregular commercially promoted parties in villas and private homes on the islands of Ibiza and Mallorca.
"Licensed clubs and bars are required to meet safety and security standards, including emergency exits and capacity limits, and to have trained, licensed security staff. Irregular commercial parties may not meet these standards. You should take care of your belongings, ensure you know where emergency exits are located and not take unnecessary risks.
"Heavy fines may be imposed by local authorities to anyone attending irregular commercial parties."
