Nerja, Frigiliana and Torrox lead the provincial ranking for tourist occupancy in August with over 90 per cent occupancy.
The province of Malaga has finished the month of August with an occupancy rate of over 76 per cent according to the Association of Hoteliers of the Costa del Sol (Aehcos). The association have said they are “moderately satisfied” with these figures. Some areas though have done far better than others.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has affected most of Spain but summer tourists have returned. In August 69 per cent of the total tourists in Malaga were national tourists. This meant that the number of international tourists came in at 31 per cent.
The president of the Association of Hoteliers of the Costa del Sol, Jose Luque, has said he is “moderately satisfied” with the overall hotel occupancy for August. However, he commented that the number of international tourists was less than had been hoped for.
As reported by Axarquia Plus, “As explained by Aehcos in a statement, ‘national tourists have saved the season from an atypical summer’. The eastern coast – Nerja, Frigiliana and Torrox – has led the occupancy ranking, with 91.2 percent. It is followed by Marbella and San Pedro Alcántara, with 87.34 percent, and Malaga city with 87.27 percent.”
Luque also commented that: “it is still too early to predict what will happen in autumn-winter, a season in which the operations of Malaga airport with connections outside Spain will be fundamental”.
