Gran Canaria's tourism records keep tumbling as demand soars and the number of flip-flops on the beaches goes up and up.

Two different tourism records tumbled in August this year as the island saw record numbers of visitors and record visitor spend.

Visitors to Gran Canaria spent a total of 1,259 million euros in August, up 9,6 % on August 2014 figures and significantly more than the 1,149 million spent in July, itself a record month. The average visitor spent 1.258 euros during their holiday, a year-on-year rise of 7,2%. Spend per day was up 7,1 % to 124 euros. 

The increase was largely down to a surge in the number of British tourists coming to Gran Canaria, although a big increase in Italian visitors also helped. 

863,000 passengers used Gran Canaria airport during August, out of 3.2 million in all eight Canary Islands airports. That's 3.2% up on August 2014.
