Tourism boom in 2015 for the Costa Smeralda, that spot for Sardinia

In Gallura very positive numbers. Also coming Danes, Norwegians and Americans. Among the super-rich crisis it never existed, as demonstrated by the many mega yachts.
Gallura an increasingly international. The tricolor flag fades in the sun of northern Sardinia. European tourists are to turn the factory lives of beaches and sea. From Olbia to San Teodoro through Arzachena foreigners are driving the numbers of the season in 2015.

Overtaking: in 2017 foreign tourists in Sardinia exceed Italians
The island increasingly international destination. The Regional Morandi: is our strategy. “It shortens the gap between domestic and foreign presence in a very good season”
French grow, driven by a marketing policy begun in 2010 from Budoni. Until then the transalpine cousins ​​preferred to Sicily and Sardinia. Then the intuition of Studio holidays to organize charter flights. In five years the bus with wings have passed from 5 to 25 per week. 70 thousand arrivals of French calculated between April and November the charter and coated hotels Gallura.
But there was an increase also of British, German and American. Costa Smeralda, in countertrend, increase vacationers extra luxury tricolor. One such example. The audience at the concert of Robbie Williams, Hotel Cala di Volpe, was more than 50 percent Italian.
In Olbia attendance Italian, collapsed in recent years because of the crisis and the first ferry, have timidly riaffacciate. Entrepreneurs of hospitality in the city are trying out a given. More 5 percent. Instead it wanders around the 10 percent growth in the foreign market.

A fact that gives a close reading of the president of the hoteliers of Olbia, Fabio Flowers. “According to our investigations this increase of 10 per cent of foreigners is due primarily to the crisis in North Africa, Algeria, Turkey, Egypt, but also the problems of instability in Kenya and Greece – said Flowers -. Who usually chose those coasts diverted his attention and Sardinia in the Mediterranean has gained, thanks to the excellent location. Of course we do not know how this trend will last, we do not like to speculate on the misfortunes of others countries. Obviously we hope that those who have chosen this season for the first time our island and the Gallura, and are really a lot, also returns in 2016. It will also depend on us, on the level of acceptance that we would be able to offer our guests ” .
Flowers then trace the geography of foreign tourists on holiday in Olbia. “It has grown the number of French, Norwegian, Danish and Swedish, Americans perhaps because of the depreciation of the euro against the dollar – says the number one association of hoteliers olbiesi -. But also the British and the Germans, even if they love most travel during shoulder. ”
Flowers also outlines an identikit of foreign tourist Gallura. Alert and active, always moving, it does not pass the days to grill on the beach, but also want to breathe the culture of Sardinia. And to do that is not afraid to grind kilometers. “It’s a tourist who moves according to his passions – explains Flowers -. Not afraid to move, but gets into the car and go to look for places where he can play sports, discover the art, culture, festivals. Confirmation of this dynamism is the boom in car rental, with the sell-out from 25 July to 20 August. Find a car was really firm and prices have tripled. ”
Recapture the hearts of Italians and fascinates more and more foreigners from bulging wallet the Costa Smeralda. The village of luxury has increased especially the wealthy vacationers tricolor. Decrease compared to the past the Russians, instead grow American, British, German, South American and Middle East.
In the four hotels Starwood tourists in the Arab world have appeared only from early August, after the end of Ramadan. Further confirmation of the timeless charm of the lady of tourism is in the dozens of maxi yacht owned by millionaires around the world, soaking in the bay of Cala di Volpe.
