TOURIST interest in Adra is growing, if the number of visits to the municipal tourist office this summer are anything to go by.
The council said nearly 1,000 people had dropped into the tourist office located in the Fishing museum for information on the area in June, July, August and September. A further 1,000 had gone there to take part in one of the guided tours of Adra.
Tourism councillor Elisa Fernandez commented that she was “very satisfied” with the numbers, which she said “are increasing every year.”
She pointed out the tourist office had received nearly 400 more requests for information this summer than last year; in September alone the office visitor numbers were up by 70 on the same month of 2018.
“For this government team developing tourism is very important”, the councillor stressed.
“Therefore Adra continues to open its doors to the world and continues designating itself as a quality destination on the must-see visit map.”
Many of the tourists going to the Adra tourist office this summer were from Madrid, Murcia or the Valencia region, but there were also visitors from other parts of Andalucia and from overseas, including France and the UK.
The council said the most common requests were for information about the town’s beaches, especially Playa de la Rana on which dogs are allowed.
Also typical were requests for details on local restaurants, fiestas, cultural activities, active tourism and hikes, as well as information about other places along the coast and the Alpujarra.
