The short answer is no, the Beach Bars would not be happy as they do food and ice creams and are properly licensed and paying taxes whereas someone running a bike would firstly have to register as self employed, be paying their income tax and meet any food hygiene regulations before they could start their business.

Why are people always so negative on here and automatically assume that someone starting a business would not do so legally?

I was not assuming anything, I was pointing out the pitfalls of starting a business where you would be in competition with existing businesses and have several hurdles to cross to be able to operate here in Spain.

That’s the nature of the forum police I’m afraid.

Exactly what I was doing, it is never my intention to put people off as some sad members on the Forum do, I was trying to explain the reality and difficulty of trying to make a living in Spain.

As one of the sad members of the forum, I would endorse everything that John has said and also encourage the OP to go through the process to work legally.

As well as getting the various hygiene certificates etc, he would also have to get a licence to trade - which is not going to be easy, given the opposition from cafes and bars.

If he were successful in getting a licence, he would have to register as autónomo and also with INSS and Agencia Tributaria.

The living would be seasonal of course and it might be a good idea to have a backup job for the rest of the year.

You could always become a 'Looky Looky' man of course 

Everybody on the forum will encourage those who want information about how to work legally but, unfortunately, there is a high proportion who think they can just arrive in Spain and work cash in hand, on the black. Somehow that attitude is often encouraged, rather than pointing them in the legal direction. 😒
