COVID-19 Updates at Abama Resort

In the context of a situation that is ever-changing, we will use this space to maintain a line of communication regarding COVID-19 and the status of the services and facilities at Abama.

As of the 21st of June, 2020, Spain completed the official phases of Confinement De-escalation, and residents and tourists alike from the Schengen area countries are free to enter the Canary Islands without quarantining upon arrival.

The regional government has established several safety regulations to protect citizens and visitors. It is also important to check with your airline about the specific protocols they have established, and understand your home country’s requirements and regulations upon your return.

In the Canary Islands, on the plane or at the airport:

  • Your temperature may be taken and you may be asked to answer a health questionnaire
  • You must use a mask and follow the airline and airport’s established safety protocols
  • Online check-in is recommended to avoid delays
  • There may be new restrictions on hand luggage, so check before travelling

In public spaces on the islands:

You must wear a mask in public places and on public transport, as well as anywhere you cannot keep a safe distance of 1.5 meters from others, if you are over 6 years old. Exceptions are also extended if you are eating or drinking, exercising, or have a respiratory disease or disability that prevents you from wearing a mask.

Beach use:

You may sunbathe and swim in the sea, but you must maintain a distance of 2 meters from others outside your group. Groups may not be larger than 15 people. Some beaches have restricted capacity and you must book in advance.
