The world’s most popular tourist destination is Mallorca, according to website HotelBeds.
The island is even more popular than destinations like Disney World in Orlando, and is followed in popularity in Spain by Barcelona, Tenerife, Benidorm and the Costa del Sol.
Mallorca is full to overflowing with tourists in hotels and apartments. In June, the National Institute of Statistics (INE) confirmed that holiday lets on the island reached the highest occupancy levels in Spain. The island’s favourite destinations are Alcudia and Calvia, and it appears that tourism is due to continue along the same lines at least until the end of September, a month which is seeing figures rise each year.
The British, German, French and Italian markets are providing Mallorca with even more visitors than in other years, and growth within the Spanish market is at around 15 per cent.
HotelBeds concludes that the amount of activities available to tourists is also rising to keep up with demand. The site has a database of 75,000 hotels in 180 countries.
