THE 13.5 million tourists who visited the Balearic Islands in 2014 spent €12 billion, a record figure in the history of the Islands.
Sharing the data, Jaime Martinez, Tourism and Sports councillor of the Balearic Regional Government, said the results were expected to be even better this year.
The number of people holidaying on the islands last year was a substantial 15.3 per cent higher than in 2009, according to Mr Martinez.
Last year’s average spending per tourist per day was €107, 9 per cent higher than in 2009.
The total value of overnight stays in 2014 amounted €111.3 million, almost 3 per cent more than the previous year.
The largest number of tourists came from Germany, with 4.1 million visitors, followed by Britain (3.3 million), Spain (2.2 million), Italy (more than 600,000), and France (more than 400,000).
Mr Martinez explained that the number of Germans is now similar to the figures registered before the beginning of the financial crisis, and the number of Spanish tourists has gone back to those of 2010 which, he said, were good results.
