Madrid is a More Popular Destination than Barcelona for Spanish Tourists 

Since the Russians are grounded at home due to devaluation (1 Ruble = €0.016), locals are looking even more towards domestic tourism to save this summer season.


According to TRIVAGO, based on reservations for July and August, the most popular destinations for Spanish nationals this summer will be:

Costa Daurada” or “Costa Dorada” (Golden Coast) is the
Mediterranean shoreline of Catalonia between Cunit (A) and Alcanar (B)

1. Benidorm

2. Peñíscola

3. Madrid

4. Salou

5. Barcelona

Salou in August

“Salou” has the most expensive accommodation in Spain with an average price of €271 per night. This is based on the rates for these two months supplied by agencies and on-line sites for all types of accommodation. 

Some hotels in "Salou" are offering are specifically offering expensive rooms from the 1st of August.

Benidorm in August
“Calpe” (€267) and “Benidorm” (€257) are the next most expensive destinations; while on the opposite end of the scale: “Granada” (€65) and “Sevilla” (€73) are the cheapest.

Madrid in August
Sunny beach resorts are highlighted on the list as the most popular holiday destinations for Spaniards this summer. Competing against big cities like Madrid and Barcelona. Visitor’s profiles are quite different for “Costa Dorada” which is mainly aimed for families attracted by nice weather, beach and leisure (like “Port Aventura”).  They are also attracted by facilities, sports activities and nightlife.

On the other hand, Madrid and Barcelona are more focused on cultural and business tourism.

The domestic market is vital for the Costa Daurada. Last year most visitors were from Spain (46%), followed by Russia (13%), France (12%) and the UK (11%).
