TOURIST ATTRACTION: Palma de Mallorca.
INTERNATIONAL tourist arrivals in the Balearics decreased in January.
There were 25,400 (22.6 per cent) fewer than in the same month last year, according to Frontur.
This is due to fewer Germans coming to the islands, the study by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism shows. In total 86,905 foreign tourists arrived on the Balearic Islands in January.
This puts the island in sixth position at a national level for tourist arrivals. On a national level, 2.8million tourists arrived in Spain last month.
This is 122,000 (4.6%) more than January 2011 and ignites the hope that it means that 2012 will be a good year for tourist arrivals.
Nearly two in 10 tourists to Spain last month were from the UK, which is a 5.7 per cent more than last January.
Aside from the Balearics, the other regions that suffered a decrease in tourist arrivals last month were Andalucia and Valencia.
