Teulada-Moraira Mayor Carlos Linares presented June’s municipal occupancy figures last week, which came in at 60.21 per cent, one per cent higher than last year’s figures.
The most popular period in June was between 3 and 11 – as the Moors and Christians fiestas were celebrated.
The mayor is convinced that these figures indicate the municipality will enjoy a busy high summer season.
International visitors came mainly from the UK, Belgium, France, Germany and Holland and national visitors came mainly from the Comunidad Valenciana and Madrid.
Hostels reported an occupancy of 75 per cent, hotels 71.5 per cent, holiday rentals 63.5 per cent and camping sites 31.3 per cent.
The tourist office was busy, with 1,342 visits from international tourists and 147 visits from national tourists.
An occupancy figure of 80 per cent is expected in July.
