The British still cannot get enough of the Balearics for their holidays.

22-10-2015R.L.

10.4 million foreign tourists came to the Balearics between January and September, which represented 19.2% of all arrivals in Spain over the first nine months of the year.

The latest survey of tourist movement (Frontur) conducted by the national tourism ministry shows that the Balearics was the region second behind Catalonia - with 25.6% - and ahead of the Canaries with 15.6% and Andalusia (13.6%).

The Catalonia total was 13.9 million tourists, 3.2% higher than last year, while the Balearics’ 10.4 million was a 2.5% increase. The Canaries welcomed 8.4 million visitors, which was up by 1.2%. Andalusia, with 7.3 million tourists, registered the greatest percentage increase among “sun-and-beach” regions - up 6.6%. The Madrid Community had the highest overall rise, one of 10.8%, with 3.8 million tourists.

We have this current government destroying tourism. By 2020 there will be "to let" and "to sell" signs everywhere once again. However, it will not be as sharp a decline, as the Sterling currency exchange will allow the British to still want to holiday. Then the PP will be voted back in .... they will spend 5 years undoing the damage .... but it will take a further 10 years to attract the visitors that have been lost. The season will become 1st June to 31st August. I love the fact that I visited 10 times this summer, but I am not a tourist .... and added little to the tourist economy. How many commute to work in London on a weekly basis throughout the summer.

THE PERCENTAGES OF VISITING TOURISTS WILL BECOME REDUCED WHEN THE TOURIST TAX IS INTRODUCED, AND ITS PERCENTAGE IS GRADUALLY INCREASED.
