Lanzarote wants lesser number of British tourists

 Monday, March 6, 2023 


The Spanish island of Lanzarote is looking for lesser number of British tourists.

This well-known holiday spot in the Canary Island has announced itself as ‘tourist-saturated’ and is now thinking ways to restrict the number of UK visitors that it normally witnesses.

The new plan is to lessen its reliance on the UK market.

In the islands, more than 50 per cent of visitors at the moment are from the UK. Many of these tourists are infamous for their unruly behavior.

Overcrowding has become an existential peril for the island, said María Dolores Corujo, the President of Lanzarote.

Corujo said that they would continue to think about putting limits to growth although there are many who keep discouraging them about harm to the image of Lanzarote.

The local opposition party has objected to the strategy which they say will shoot up prices for locals and harm the local economy.

The plan being considered has a clear purpose, i.e. decreasing the number of British tourists.

Nevertheless, the authorities haven’t spoken about the details on how the plan would be executed.

There is no element of a formal restriction yet. The council website specifies that the tourism authorities will begin aiming marketing toward other European countries at the earliest.
