Lanzarote considering cracking down on British tourists

 Saturday, March 18, 2023 


Spain’s Lanzarote, popular for its beaches, volcanic scenery, and natural attractiveness, has said that they want ‘higher-quality’ visitors who would spend more from now on. The island’s new plan is to lessen its reliance on the British visitors and to lure tourists from other countries like Germany.

This decision is indeed important, given that British tourists at the moment comprise as much as half of Lanzarote’s visitors from abroad. However, the island is not the first in Spain to begin looking for quality rather than quantity.

Of late, Mallorca disclosed that it would not permit in excess of three cruise ships each day to the island’s capital of Palma in 2023 and 2024. Lucia Escribano, the Director of Tourism for Mallorca said that the island is not fascinated to get budget tourists from the UK.

Likewise, at the end of 2022, Amsterdam said that it is cracking down on troublemaking tourists who led to its corrupt image linked to drinking, drugs and brothels. Their ‘stay away’ movement aimed the especially the Britons, who are commonly thought to be the unruliest tourists of Amsterdam. The city is also thinking to restrict bar crawls, stag-do and size of hen parties, river journeys and cannabis intake. It recently declared that weed will be prohibited in Amsterdam’s notorious red light district.
