Brits have named Majorca their number one favourite holiday destination of all time. A survey, carried out by On the Beach, asked over 1,600 Briton’s what their favourite holiday destination was and an overwhelming majority named Majorca has their top spot.
Spanish destinations have always been popular with the Brit’s and this has become apparent with the Canary Island of Tenerife coming in second. In third was the Algarve region of Portugal, known for its scorching sun, white sand beaches and impressive golf facilities.
Gran Canaria, another Canary Island, took fourth place, popular with party goers and sun-lovers, and holidays to Cyprus landed in fifth, attracting Brits with its five star hotels and picturesque scenery. Other Spanish destinations including Ibiza and Alicante also made it onto the list of favourite holiday destinations.
Speaking on the popularity of Spanish destinations Alistair Daly, chief marketing officer at On the Beach said that “Spain has been attracting British holidaymakers to its shores for many years and our survey cements its position as the number one destination for British sun-seekers.”
Though Spain is still dominating the leader boards, it is Croatia that is seeing the biggest increase year on year on British arrivals. International bookings to Croatia this year have increased by 96 per cent, suggesting that the breathtaking coastlines of Croatia are set to become one of the most popular destinations for Brits in just a few years. “Croatia has been attracting more and more holidaymakers over the past few years and bookings for 2013 suggest that it could soon be rivalling Spain," added Mr Daly.
