Brexit: What is the impact to Ibiza?
We don’t want to create alarm, but a potential problem could exist.
Nowadays, the English community represents a very important percentage of the tourists to the White Island.
There are areas, such as San Antonio, that are hugely influenced by English tourism and the English lifestyle.
We don’t think (and of course, don’t hope) that in Summer 2016 there will be a diminished English tourism, BUT, as there is always one ‘but’; if the value of the English pound decreases significantly in respect to the Euro, it could provide a negative effect to the economy of the Island.
Potentially, the areas where the English community has a dominant role, could be at risk.
The same could be said for the parties that usually attract English tourists.
Whilst it is too early to make provisions, one thing is certain, Brexit could also bring its force to Ibiza.
