Balearic boom for tourist numbers

THE Balearic Islands have received around 6.2 million tourists so far this year up to July. A total of 6,288,847 people from all over the world have visited the Balearic Islands for sun, sea and a good time between January and July.

This is a 0.8 per cent increase on the same period last year and puts the islands just behind Cataluña in terms of tourist numbers. According to data released by Frontur (tourist movement survey) this July was 3.9 per cent better than last July. Britain is the biggest provider with 23 per cent of tourism being from those islands – one in three British tourists visit Mallorca.

In second place came Germany, with 14 per cent of the total and third place went to France with 12.4 per cent of the total.
