2 November, 2022

Sitges closed the high season with excellent results and a clear trend towards the recovery of the influx of international tourism. While this represented 59.56% of the total number of tourists in the months of June and July, during the month of August the figure rose to 59.69%.

For markets, the British market comes second, with a 14.4% share in this iconic destination on the Catalan coast. It falls between the main French market with 33.4% (helped by the proximity of the French border) and at a great distance from the German market, in third place with 9.1%.

Hotel occupancy reached 84.3% in August, while in the same month of 2021 this ratio was 77.07%. The most demanded were 3-star hotels, which reached 90.4% occupancy. With regard to Housing for Tourist Use (HUT), occupancy was 86.6%, reaching 89.4% in the case of single-bedroom homes.
