Pride Week in Benidorm, starting on September 5 is expected to play a big role in boosting the number of visitors to the resort, which expects an average hotel occupancy of 82.87 percent for the month—17.9 points higher than in 2021.
The Benidorm Pride Festival, back for the first time since the Covid pandemic, attracts many thousands. In 2019 an estimated 15,000 attended, and, as we reported here, you can still get a last-minute accommodation deal at budget prices for this year’s event.
Overall, the Valencian Community expects to exceed 25 million tourists in 2022, a figure close to that registered in the pre-pandemic year. The average occupancy in the region hit 90 percent in August.
The September forecast anticipates a longer than usual summer season, Spanish news outlet El Periódico reported today (Friday).
The encouraging figures were presented by the Regional Secretary of Tourism, Francesc Colomer, above,.
Colomer predicts that tourism figures for the region will equal or exceed those of 2019. He attributed the impressive bounce-back to the efforts made by the tourism sector to promote the region—and Benidorm in particular—on national and international levels.
In August, hotels in Benidorm saw an occupancy rate of 90.83 percent, 11.4 points higher than registered in August of last year.
