The houses for holiday rental on the Spanish coast have an expected occupancy rate for August of 77.7%, which means that the occupancy rate for August 2020 has already been surpassed. The options for renting a holiday home on the beach this summer are dwindling and there is less and less supply available.
12 Spanish coasts already have a higher occupancy level than they had in 2020. The coast of Valencia with a growth of 6.3 percentage points leads the way, followed by the coast of Mallorca (5.7 points), the coast of Malaga (4.9 points), the coast of Menorca (3.7 points), and the coast of Cadiz (3 points). Below 3 points are the coasts of Girona (2.2 points), Tarragona (2 points), Alicante (1.6 points), Barcelona (1.5 points), Murcia (1 point), Castellón (0.7 points), and Huelva (0.2 points).
Although in August 2020 international tourism was reduced and Spanish travelers opted mainly for less crowded destinations such as Asturias, Cantabria, and A Coruña, for this month of August the boom in classic summer destinations is back. The good vaccination rates are encouraging tourists, both national and international, to book their holidays with haste and it would not be surprising to see some Spanish coastline with pre-pandemic occupancy levels.
