ROMFORD, England, August 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

-As Spain sees a massive increase in the number of tourists visiting its shores, the small island of Lanzarote sees an enormous influx of summer holidaymakers, say Beat The Brochure-

According to Beat The Brochure, an online travel company, holidays to the islands belonging to Spain, including holidays to Lanzarote, have seen a huge increase in the number of tourist arrivals. These islands have also been some of the most popular Spanish destinations for British tourists.

Figures released by the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade show that Spain has seen almost six million Britons visiting the country in the first six months of this year. The figure, which is up 8.5 per cent over the same period last year, shows that Spain is continuing to be incredibly popular with British tourists.

Aside from Lanzarote, Canary Islands destinations, including holidays to Gran Canaria, also took a major step in June, with tourist arrivals reaching over 650,000 in total. Overall this year, the figures for the Canary Islands showed an increase of over 20 per cent on the previous year.

Daniel Ox of Beat The Brochure comments: "Lanzarote, which is popular with celebrities like Penelope Cruz and Jenson Button, has long been attracting tourists to its shores. The unusual landscape and excellent beaches create one of the most idyllic island locations in the world.

"Lanzarote is well known for being a winter tourist destination due to its warm weather during the colder months, but this data shows that the island is making gains in the ranks of summer destinations too. Lanzarote is one of the most beautiful places in the world and it has a lot to offer the British tourist; we are not surprised that it is proving so popular."
