Residents in Costa Blanca’s Javea have woken up to find an array of different anti-tourism graffiti painted on the walls and streets of touristic areas.

The coronavirus crisis has had an unprecedented affected on the tourism industry and so far, businesses have been begging for international governments to find a solution and let tourists back into the country.

Although the summer season has been atypically slow and difficult for struggling businesses on the coast, there was a glimmer of hope for the months of July and August as international borders are set to re-open during these dates.

Sadly, it appears that not everyone is as excited for the streets of Javea to be busy once again this summer as this unwelcoming message has been sprawled across the walls.

The words “Tourists Go Home” has been spray-painted on top of several businesses in a dark and bold font.

Not only is this extremely unwelcoming to any incoming visitors who want to spend their money in a sector that is already struggling but this adds an extra cost to the businesses and town halls who will be working hard to remove this as soon as possible.
