And, of course, it has several charming places and that are the attraction of the large influx of tourists who bring economy to the town.
Specifically, Xàbia registers a growth of 331% in summer and passes from just over 27.000 inhabitants to a seasonal population of about 117.000, which is an 4,3% more, according to data from the Marina Alta Observatory.
The work and the measures to control the massification becomes effective with the summer arrival, but Xàbia is still a small municipality that faces the increase of visitors with the resources of a few. Xàbia becomes a city and tries to address, in the best way, the increase in population: Regulation of access to the most visited coves, closure to others for security, and increased services.
Although there are only about 27.000 censored people, Xàbia increases its number of inhabitants with those of second residence, summer residents, visitors and tourists. Positive figures for the economic engine of Xàbia and for which we work to maintain them, but always, taking care and respecting our area, our coastline and our places, which attract and monopolize in social networks and magazines.
With the increase in population, the lack of personnel and personnel, it is clear that it is necessary, but with the collaboration of citizens, the work would be easier. The simple fact of respecting the rules and being civic, would help to enjoy the image and landscape of Xàbia, without bringing consequences to the usual residents.
