Sun, sea, sand and shops – second home owners enjoy retail therapy in Alicante
Spain has enjoyed a record-breaking summer, with some 54.4 million foreign visits in the first nine months of 2015, up 3.8% on the year before, according to the Industry, Energy and Tourism Ministry. But now that the summer season is at an end and the holidaymakers are back at work in their home countries, has Spain accepted that the rush of visitors is over for another year?
Sales and Marketing Director of leading Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey Espana, comments, “Spain is a great destination for shopping, whether it’s in the run-up to Christmas or at any other time of year. In the south of the country, Alicante is a particularly attractive destination when it comes to high-end clothes and luxury items like watches and jewellery. There’s a wide variety of choice, from huge shopping malls to tiny boutique stores.”
