EASTERN Axarquia has been highlighted as a sought-after destination, boasting superb gastronomy, a great balance of quality and price, and of course breathtaking landscapes. As tourists seek rural getaways more and more Sierras Tejeda, Almijara, Alhama Natural Park, or the Maro-Cerro Gordo Cliffs offer the perfect destinations for them.
Towns such as Cómpeta, Frigiliana, and Torrox lead Andalucian tourism. Hospitality and beach business associations highlighted the region’s positive performance in attracting visitors from across Europe and increasingly from the United States due to improved air connectivity.
Rural tourism platforms are predicting a 5 per cent growth in occupancy for February with Valentine’s Day and the White Week contributing to these predictions, occupancy rates will reach 50 per cent for the Malaga province overall. The average stay for domestic tourists is anticipated at 2.42 nights, while foreign guests are expected to exceed ten nights. Premium accommodations with special features like Jacuzzis are in demand.
Besides the popular destinations of Cómpeta, Frigiliana, and Torrox, Sayalonga, Campillos, and Fuente de Piedra are also in demand, strategically located near the Caminito del Rey.
