Vice President of Tourism, Andrés Martínez, stressed that "in calculating the expected growth in tourism in Castellon due, statistics from previous years have not been considered due to their not been an airport in the equation. 2014 saw the number of British Tourists grow 20% on the previous year to reach 33,000 - mostly through the summer months - and it is expected that this can only grow further in 2015."

Further indicators suggest the growth of tourism in the province, with an increase in average daily spend per head of 3.8%.
