MANCHESTER, England, November 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
-On the Beach tip Croatia as the hottest up-and-coming beach getaway spot-
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 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 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, 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 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."
