Bars and restaurants will also have to respect new closing times and tighter restrictions on the number of customers.

The lockdown is aimed at halting the spread of Covid-19 and it comes following a fresh outbreak which has seen 106 people test positive for the virus.

Local reports say all those who don’t live in La Marina will have to leave the area by midnight tonight or stay for the next five days.

One of the municipalities affected by the new La Marina lockdown is the seaside resort of Ribadeo by Galicia’s border with the neighbouring region of Asturias.

It is on one of the popular St James Way pilgrim routes.

Glenis de Leon, a receptionist at the four-star Hotel Boutique Loriente, said: “We’ve just been told about the lockdown and are advising guests who are due to arrive today so they have the option of cancelling free of charge.

“Our understanding is guests who were due to arrive after midnight today won’t be able to enter La Marina for the next five days.

“We’re still trying to understand what it means for tourists who are already at the hotel but were due to leave over the next five days, after midnight but before the lockdown is due to end.

“In a normal year we have lots of guests staying with us from the UK but they normally come for work reasons.

“This year because of the travel restrictions we’re receiving more tourists and visitors from within Spain.”

Francisco Cajoto, mayor of nearby Foz which is also among the municipalities affected, said: “We want to transmit a message of responsibility and calm to neighbours, focused especially on the use of face masks.

“We’re seeing that where there’s relaxation, there’s a new outbreak. We also want to transmit a message of support to those in the hotel and catering industry, which is so important to an area like Foz and had been recovering slowly as the restrictions that had been in place were eased.”

Just over 70,000 people are due to be affected by Spain’s second lockdown since the end of its state of emergency.

Jose Manuel Pereira, manager of Hotel Thalasso Cantabrico Las Sirenas in Viveiro, told local press: “We’re going to wait to see what’s published by officials later so we know exactly what the new rules are going to be.

“We’re going to wait to see what clients say because some were due to leave today and others were due to arrive today or in the next few days.”

As part of the lockdown rules people will only be able to take their face masks off on the beach when they go to swim in the sea.

Bars including tapas bars will only be serve customers at tables and will have to close at midnight. Face masks will have to be kept on at all times except when people are eating something or drinking.

Face masks in Spain are obligatory at the moment on public transport and in public spaces indoors like shops as well as outdoors.

But outdoors they only have to be worn when social distancing cannot be guaranteed or when people are doing sport.

On Saturday authorities ordered a lockdown for 210,000 people in the north-eastern Segria region of Lleida province in Catalonia after dozens of new cases were detected.

A total of 38 municipalities have been affected.

The city of Lleida is within the area that has been shut off from the rest of the country. Police have set up roadblocks to prevent people from entering or leaving, except for essential workers.

Catalonia is one of the hardest-hit parts of Spain, with more than 72,000 confirmed cases.

Catalan president Quim Torre said after announcing the lockdown: “We cannot relax for one minute until we stop this voracious virus.

“I have told police to fine anyone who doesn’t respect the rules designed to protect us.”

People in Lleida will be allowed to go to work outside the city, but from Tuesday workers entering or leaving the lockdown area will have to present a certificate from their employer.

There have been almost 10 local outbreaks within Lleida province - at four fruit companies, an agri-food company, a cluster of neighbours, a nursing home and a hostel for homeless people, the La Vanguardia newspaper reported.

An outbreak in Vall d'Aran involved people who attended a barbecue on June 16.

At least eight people who attended the barbecue have tested positive for the potentially deadly virus.

The local lockdowns began a day after after Britain's government announced that Spain was on its quarantine exemption list. People arriving in the UK from Spain will be exempt from a 14-day quarantine.

Spain opened up to British tourists on June 21 three months after shutting its borders and more have started to jet to Spain in July following a small trickle in the first few days.

After imposing a strict lockdown on March 14, the government has been gradually easing restrictions in a multi-phase plan since early May.

Spain has suffered one of the worst outbreaks in the world but has gradually emerged from a total lockdown as infections and deaths trended downwards.

As of Sunday morning, it had the sixth highest number of cases in the world (297,625) and the seventh worst death toll (28,385).
