Contemporary Problems of Nautical Tourism Development in Croatia

This article explores the contemporary problems of nautical tourism development in Croatia. The authors first note that the Croatian Adriatic Littoral (shoreline) is one of the best nautical tourism areas in the world. However, marina capacities and the quality of service in Croatia are at the same level as ten years ago and they are similar to poor hotel accommodations. The overall potential that may generate stronger economic development of the Croatian coast has not been approached. The authors discuss the geographic distribution of marina, propositions for the legal and spatial directing of nautical tourism, propositions for institutional directing of nautical tourism, and complementary activities development, including shipbuilding, higher education, free-trade, marine culture, and historical heritage. The authors conclude by calling for a strategy of nautical tourism development in Croatia. Such a strategy is vital for better marketing, securing of regular incomes for local communities, fighting against illegal renting of vessels and berths, ecological protection of the coast, and the general improvement of standards in Croatian tourism.
