Beach bar owners happy

ALTHOUGH overall annual turnover dropped by 4 to 5 per cent, beach bar and restaurant owners in Malaga province were satisfied.

According to Costa del Sol Beach Businesses Association president Manuel Villafaina, they understood that customers do not spend the same amount due to the economic crisis.

“Tourism in general and beach food services in particular are not in crisis.  2012 was not a bad year after all but quite similar to 2011, though obviously nothing like 2008,” he said.

Villafaina also pointed out that, while Spanish trade has decreased, custom from foreign clients has noticeably increased.
