At current rates of growth, total visitors to Spain – reported to have already reached over 36m from January to June this year – will be close to twice its population in the coming years.
Take the Spanish island of Mallorca – whether it’s the Love Island effect or simply the countless charms of this Mediterranean jewel, but, this summer, its popularity has reached dizzier heights, with British arrivals up by 17.6% annually between January to May.
With an economy so reliant on tourism, this is indeed positive news. However, with visitor numbers swelling, some are concerned over the island’s sustainability.
Marc Pritchard, the Sales and Marketing Director of Spanish housebuilder Taylor Wimpey España, says: “It is fantastic to see Mallorca’s popularity continues to flourish; we have certainly received a great number of enquiries from international visitors looking to experience all that this wonderful island has to offer. I do believe, however, that it is important to ensure that Mallorca remains a sustainable island, which is why we are focused on delivering quality homes in quality locations for future generations to enjoy.”
Indeed, as the local authorities set out ambitious plans to move Mallorca away from mass-market tourism and embrace quality, Taylor Wimpey España – established almost 60 years ago on the island – is proudly delivering high-quality homes.
Pritchard explains: “Whilst it’s easy to say, it’s not so easy to deliver high-quality homes, which is why we are so proud of our Mallorcan developments. Operational since 1958, Taylor Wimpey España has been at the forefront of the island’s property market for almost six decades, securing the very best sites and building the finest homes for our clients. We are Mallorca and we are committed to ensuring a sustainable future for the island we call home.”
