Beaches in the Function of Primary Resource of the Beach Tourism Product

Plaže u funkciji osnovnog resursa proizvoda kupališnog turizma

Development of tourism in the Republic of Croatia is closely related to bathing tourism. In the beginning, the development of tourism was linked to thermal spas and health resorts and later to coastal areas. Coastal zones represent a unique geographical area from the prospective of ecology, but also from a prospective of human race development. Coastal zones, especially those in the Mediterranean, are characterized by high population and economic activity which are causing conflicts when it comes to the way of resources usage, intensive land usage, urbanization of the coastal line and ecological degradation. The Republic of Croatia, as one of the most significant tourism destinations in the Mediterranean, has a long tourism tradition and high development potential. But, what best characterizes the Croatian part of the Adriatic are certainly its well-indented coast, natural attractions and diversity, which all serve the development of tourism and other economic activities.
