Admissions Rise Again At Main Attractions

The number of admissions at Lanzarote´s main tourist attractions continued to rise in March, according to the latest figures just released by the Cabildo. Climbing by 14.68% versus the same month last year. As a total of 227,001 holidaymakers visited the island's most popular sights such as the Timanfaya National Park, Mirador del Rio and Jameos del Agua.

Lanzarote´s tourist industry continues to benefit from an increase in visitor numbers driven by recent events in the Middle East. As the number of admissions at the six main centres of Art, Culture and Tourism climbed again last month by nearly 15% versus March 2010. And are also up by nearly 16% versus February 2011 too.

As ever the lava fields and volcanoes of the Timanfaya National Park remain the most popular visitor attraction on Lanzarote, with 78, 079 admissions. Followed by the Jameos del Agua, where 58,889 tourists enjoyed the ambience of one of César Manrique's finest creations on the island.

Overall, the six centres of Art, Culture and Tourism have now welcomed 590,017 visitors during the first three months of this year. Which is the best first quarter performance on record since 2001.
