More Visitors to Canary Islands

The number of tourists visiting Spain this January has increased compared to last year new statistics show. For the first time in 18 months tourist numbers rose by 1.1% to 2.54 million, not a huge rise but certainly good news especially for the Canary Islands which accounts for over 795,000 of visits making the Islands the most popular destination in Spain. In fact although the mainland has experienced small declines in both British and German numbers, some of the Islands have seen some increases, particularly in the numbers visiting from the mainland itself. While all inclusive hotels are as popular as ever the increase of second home owners especially in Fuerteventura – a developing property market – now offers visitors more private, homely accommodation and the possibility of booking directly with owners instead of tour operators.

An increase in the number of cheaper flights from Europe as well as the favoured weather during the winter months are prime reasons for the healthier statistics as Northern Europeans have escaped the freak cold conditions at home by flying a few hours further South. On average day time temperatures this time of year for Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria are above 20 degrees. New flights also bring new markets with noticeable numbers of Scandinavian visitors to Fuerteventura this winter.
