The Councillor for Tourism in Nerja, Bernardo Pozuelo, has released details of the occupancy rates achieved by the town’s hotels over the Semana Santa period. During the week as a whole occupancy levels averaged 78.2%, peaking at 85.2% over the Easter weekend.

During the peak summer months last year, average occupancy rates were 90%. In June, the occupancy rate was 86%, in July 91% and in August 93%.

Overall the council claims to be very satisfied with these Easter numbers, especially considering that the weather forecasts were not very favourable. Councillor Pozuelo also stated that the occupancy rates are higher than the average in the province and that “we should feel good because all the people of Nerja have worked together to achieve these good results”.

Figures were also released for the Nerja Tourist Office (behind the Balcon de Europa) which received a total of 2,155 visitors during Semana Santa, mainly from Spanish tourists (928) followed by the British (at 418) with Germans in third place at 241.

Out of the Spanish tourists who visited the Tourist Offices the biggest group were from the Madrid area, with 288 visits, followed by Andalucians, with 214 visits.
