This year, like every other year, the five tourist information offices in Calvia, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, deal with 320'000 visitors, according to the Calvia tourist office co-ordinator Lynn Tiper yesterday. Each of the offices however is visited by different types of tourists with differing queries. For example, the Magalluf office is predominantly frequented by British tourists, while the Paguera office deals more with the needs of the German market. The majority of visitors to the Palmanova office are Scandinavian and in Illetas, most of the inquiries are from French tourists. According to Tiper, this year a substantial increase in the number of Portuguese and Italian tourists has been clearly noticed. The most common inquiries, similar to the Palma tourist offices, are about public bus times and maps and plans of Calvia and the island as a whole. But during July and August, the number of queries about accommodation increase, especially from young visitors. “We are dealing with a lot of inquiries from people arriving on the island with a return flight only. Most of the time they are young tourists who come with little money, do not have much to spend and are looking for cheap accommodation.”
