Number of international tourists visiting the Balearic Islands 2008-2019

The number of international tourists visiting the Balearic Islands grew considerably over the last years, reaching some 13.7 million visitors in 2019, according to the latest studies. This Spanish autonomous community, comprised of four main islands with a population of around 1.2 million people, is a popular sunny retreat for many Europeans.

Sun and beach tourism in the Balearics

On top of the approximately 14 million foreign visitors, in 2019, the Balearic Islands also accommodated approximately 5.5 million Spaniards. Looking at these numbers, it is easy to understand that international holidaymakers play a major role in the archipelago's tourism industry. Foreign tourists spent an average of almost seven nights enjoying the islands’ great sunny and warm weather. While this figure has been decreasing slightly over the last years, the average daily expenditure of overseas visitors has been on the rise and was estimated at over 160 euros per tourist.

Tourism constitutes an essential industry for the Spanish economic system

Spain ranked second on the World Tourism Organization’s list of most visited countries in the world, with its number of international visitors amounting to nearly 83 million in 2018. Travel and tourism have become one of the leading engines of growth for the Spanish economy, featuring an ongoing increase in the GDP contribution over the last years and projected to reach approximately 178 billion euros in 2019. The industry also plays a key role to boost the Spanish employment market, which has been experiencing a significant improvement since the 2007 financial crisis jeopardized and destroyed many jobs across the country.
