Ibiza Not Expect Tourism to Cover till at Least August

This is an unprecedented summer for the tourism of Ibiza since the Balearic Islands will not expect any touristic activities during May, June, and even July due to the coronavirus outbreak.

This sad information comes after a study released by the Balearic Government’s Department of Labor. They research the figures on the economic debacle looming on the islands that were caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The tourism consequences will be devastating for the whole archipelago, according to an intermediate scenario.

On a little optimistic note, the activity could start minimally in August. Iago Negueruela, who estimated the influx of visitors, expected that 2 percent of those who arrived at the islands last year will return throughout August.

As a result of this as well as due to the slowdown in tourist arrivals, business investment, and consumption, the GDP of Balearic will fall by 31.6 percent over the year as a whole, which represents about 9,200 million Euros. This shows the great economic impact caused by the coronavirus.

Plenty of Jobs are on Stake

Moreover, it is estimated that a total of 147,000 jobs are to be destroyed on the four islands. Though the Government hasn’t yet had figures that are broken down by the islands, the Minister admitted that the severity of these effects is even greater in places where tourism is major like Ibiza or Formentera.

This is so bad news for islands that mainly live on tourism. Some of the iconic clubs in the islands, including Hï Ibiza, Ushuaia, and some more, are gathering in virtual events in order to collect money to fight the pandemic.

The Minister added that 18,000 Temporary Employment Regulation cases have also been filed in the Balearic Islands with 44,000 permanent and discontinuous employees being also part of these files.

We all hope that the COVID-19 pandemic comes to an end as soon as possible and the islands well recover from this. Ibiza islands gather thousands of party-goers in the famous clubs of the city. Although tourism will reduce this year on White Island, it will certainly come back stronger than ever.
