Campsites Saw Increase in Overnight Stays in 2016
Caravan and campsites across Alicante Province saw an 11 percent rise in overnight stays compared to figures for 2015. Juan Delgado of the Alicante Camping Association said that the increased figures include more Spaniards staying on sites in caravans or cabins/bungalows during the off-peak months.
He says a key factor has been people choosing to stay in the area, as opposed to going for a break to Tunisia, where attacks on tourists had taken place.
Delgado added that overnight stays had risen by 46 percent in the last decade, with Patrick Le Metayer of La Marina camping saying he had certainly noted increased demand from the domestic market looking for accommodation, be it a caravan or a cabin.
