In the Balearics, ‘Brexit is solved,’ according to a Spanish politician, who claims that the islands are still popular with Britons.
According to the Minister of Tourism of the Balearic Islands, BREXIT has been “solved.” Following the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, there were fears among British and Spanish citizens that Brexit might have a negative influence on vacations in Spain.
Thousands of Britons come to the stunning beaches of Ibiza and Mallorca every year, making the Balearic Islands one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK. Despite the pandemic’s impact on tourist numbers, over 150,000 Britons visited the Spanish region in 2020.
Despite concerns that Brexit could deter British tourists, the Balearic Government’s Minister of Economic Model, Tourism, and Work declared that Brexit has been “fixed” on the islands.
Even after the UK left the EU, according to Iago Neguereula, the UK remained one of the Balearics’ most important tourist markets.
“They trust our territory and our islands,” he continued, “and they’ve demonstrated that by being one of the markets that has recovered the most.”
The significant number of British tourists, according to Negueruela, is due in part to effective communication with UK officials during the pandemic.
The Minister also stated that throughout the summer, the Balearic Islands were one of Spain’s top foreign tourism attractions.
“Practically one out of every three international tourists (in Spain) came to the Balearics this summer,” he said.
After travel restrictions were lifted in July of this year, around 300,000 UK citizens visited the islands for a vacation.
“Tourism is rebounding back in the Balearic Islands,” stated Negueruela. We appreciate the cooperation of both the UK and local tourism industry in helping to reopen the market after such a protracted period of closure.” British visitors to Mallorca have the option of staying in either the cosmopolitan center of Palma or one of the new boutique hotels in Magaluf.
Menorca, a smaller island with beautiful beaches, historical sites to explore, and plenty of countryside to explore, is a great place to visit.
Ibiza, the White Isle, is famed for its festivities and is frequented by celebrities who come for yoga retreats.
Formentera is a little island off the coast of Ibiza with beautiful beaches and protected bird sanctuaries.
Since the end of the Brexit transition period, British visitors can visit Schengen nations for 90 days out of every 180 days.
Spain, along with other famous European locations such as France and Greece, is part of the Schengen zone. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
