-On the Beach tip Croatia as the hottest up-and-coming beach getaway

The UK’s leading online travel agency On the Beach say that figures
recently released by the Croatian National Tourist Board support their
assertion that Croatia is fast becoming one of the top beach holiday
[http://www.onthebeach.co.uk ] destinations in Europe.

The Croatian National Tourist Board is reporting an eight per cent
increase in visits to Croatia in the first nine months of 2011. Croatia has
sought to improve its tourism infrastructure in recent years in a bid to
draw more tourists to the country and the Croatian National Tourist Board
[http://croatia.hr ] say these improvements, combined with Croatia’s entry
into the EU in the next few years, will ensure that the country’s star
continues to rise with travellers.

Alistair Daly, Marketing Director of On the Beach
[http://www.onthebeach.co.uk ], comments: “Croatia is a unique country that
will appeal to many different types of British holidaymakers. The country’s
exceptional cuisine makes it an essential stop-off on any gastro-tour and
its natural beauty will delight any eco-tourist.

“However, Croatia’s crowning glory is undoubtedly its beaches. The
country is home to 1,244 islands and a stunning, unspoilt coastline that
makes it the envy of many of Europe’s more highly frequented beach
destinations. Holidays to Croatia
[http://www.onthebeach.co.uk/destinations/croatia ] are perfect for any fan
of sun, sea and sand and as the country’s facilities and infrastructure
continue to improve, holidays to this fabulous country can only get better.”
