2014 ended with the highest visitor numbers to the Costa del Sol ever recorded.
10,194,000 tourists came to the area last year, which is 7.3 per cent more than in 2013 when 9.3 million visitors arrived.
This figure also reflects the rise in the tourist market in Malaga province over the last decade.
In 2004 8.5 million people came to the Costa - 20 per cent fewer than last year, according to information released at the beginning of the week by Malaga’s provincial government, the Diputación.
Last year’s statistics
Official figures for the month of December have not yet been released by the Instituto Nacional de Estadística (INE or National Office of Statistics), but between January and November tourists to the province generated an economic impact of 7.1 billion euros.
This amount includes money spent by visitors on transport to their destination, accommodation, restaurants, shopping (on food and non foodstuffs), car hire, local transport, leisure and cultural activities among other things.
The figure rises to 10.8 billion euros if indirect or derived income from tourist spending (3.7 billion euros or 34.5 per cent of the total) is also factored in.
It has been calculated that tourist spending during 2014 equates to 132,000 full time jobs, according to the Sociedad de Planificación y Desarollo de la Diputación (Sopde or the provincial government’s Society of Development and Planning).
56.8 per cent of tourists opted for hotels, hostels, apartments, campsites or rural accommodation when coming to the Costa del Sol.
A significant rise
Between January and November 2014 the INE counted 4,532,878 tourists staying in hotels, 3.76 per cent more than in the same period in 2013.
1,011,934 visitors stayed in other types of accommodation - apartments, rural lodgings, campsites - which amounts to 17.4 per cent more. Overnight stays rose even more significantly with a total of 17,399,190 in hotels or 4.96 per cent more and 6,127,304 in non hotel establishments - or 14.28 per cent more.
