Britain's Favourite Vacation Island - Majorca
When it comes to all the vacation destinations British people have to choose from, what is it that makes Majorca so popular?
Is it the short flight time, the great weather, the friendly people...
The answer is when you put all three together and the welcome British people get that is so good that they feel at home, and nine out of ten return to
the island for another holiday, according to the tourist board.
The return of first time Majorca holidaymakers to the island in future years at such a high rate has been the foundation for a successful tourism
business, built up over years, and gives both the local authorities and private investors confidence to invest in new infrastructure to maintain the high
standards visitors have experienced in the past.
Commenting on UK visitors to Majorca a spokesman for the tourist board said recently:
"We want to emphasise the idea of how Spain is a home from home for British tourists. The links between both countries are undeniable and strong.
They feel safe and secure there and they know they can communicate easily with people."
Further good news comes from a leading UK travel agency whose analysis for holidays in Majorca shows a good amount of under 30's choosing the
island - and for all age groups the Post Office produced a survey showing that holidays in Majorca were the best value of any destination in the
Eurozone for British holidaymakers.
