    As one of the most popular regions in Europe for holidaymakers, Spain is doing everything it can to save its tourism sector. Flights are up and running, and foreign tourists are allowed in with negative PCR tests. Germans and French are topping the visitor lists to the Balearic Islands, there to enjoy the beaches, bars and restaurants. Paradoxically though, Spaniards are banned from travelling between regions. The Spanish tourist sector is complaining about such contradictions, and many Spaniards are fed up with what they feel are inconsistent Covid-19 restrictions. Our correspondents report.
