Millions of tourists flock to Spain in August, It’s a “RECORD BREAKER”

Millions of tourists flock to Spain in August, It’s a “RECORD BREAKER”
17 Oct

In the month of August, some 10.1 million foreign tourists visited Spain.This huge influx has aided the country´s economic recovery with an increase in jobs available over the summer.

This huge figure is 5.8% greater than those who visited last year, and is a National monthly record, according to the National Statistics Institute.

Tourism numbers increased by 10% in the first eight months of 2016, to 52.5 million, that was compared to the same period in 2015. It is projected that Spain is expected to break last year´s record of 68.1 million visitors.

It is good to see that Spain´s tourism sector has received a boost amidst security fears plaguing rival destinations in the Mediterranean and Middle East.

Most of the visitors remained British and the numbers from the UK increased by 3.9% year on year for the month of August.

However, figures were slightly down compared to previous months, perhaps due to the weakening pound post Brexit.
