We told you that Ibiza is hot and busy in August in one of our last news articles and this has been proved correct as stories in our local paper, the Diario de Ibiza show.
Hot – the meteorologists put the Balearic Islands on yellow alert for high temperatures – 36 degrees in Mallorca and 34 in Ibiza – with humidity levels making it feel even hotter. Health authorities advise people to drink plenty of water during the heatwave.
Busy – 271 flights arrived on the first day of August carrying 42,085 passengers. It's a lot, but not as many as last year, when record numbers arrived and officials say that the economic crisis and austerity measures in Spain and Italy are having an effect on visitor numbers. British tourism seems unaffected, probably helped by the strength of the Pound against the Euro.
