Marbella’s tourism at a 5 year high

November 27, 2010 at 10:33 am Leave a comment

Tourism figures are reportedly up across Spain. Marbella in particular shines through, with third-quarters data reflecting strong improvements for the months of July, August and September in the Costa del Sol.

The latest figures of the Spanish National Institute of Statistics, Marbella’s  tourism industry is pursuing a definite road to recovery. This summer, the municipality of Marbella has registered a seven percent increase in hotel occupancy and a twelve percent increase in overnight stays in the area. The average stay in hotels has risen to 4.46 days

Michelle Obama’s visit to Marbella this spring can be considered an important impulse for this recovery. Even if she stayed only a few days, the international press and all the media coverage created great publicity and thus attracted more tourists.Marbella tourism

Other contributing factors, apart from sunshine, sea, sangria and golfing, are some great events that the resort hosted. The fabulous Björn Again ABBA tribute concert, X-Factor extravaganza, International Festival of Art or the Food & Sun Festival have all played a part in luring holidaymakers to the town this year.

With the Andalucían region coming out on top (compared to other regions in Spain), it looks like things are finally looking up for tourism, something the region’s economy relies heavily upon.
