Abstract

The tourism activity in a certain area uses natural benefits as its primary resource. The high intensity of tourism trends undeniably changes the original landscape, which is the major threat to its aesthetic component. The Croatian coastal area is one of the examples where tourism development is based on the natural resources. However, the main tourist offer of the so-called "Sun and sea" product is intended for a large number of people. This method of management in tourism requires the construction of accommodation units and other supporting facilities in the area. On the other hand, any construction changes the original appearance of the environment and reduces its attractiveness. At the same time, a large number of tourist arrivals has also affected other segments in the area, which is best seen through the pressure on communal infrastructure. Tourists are using cars that emit harmful substances, use large amounts of water and eventually produce large amounts of garbage. By increasing the number of tourists on annual basis in the Croatian coastal area mentioned problems are becoming more evident; that emphasizes the need to create new policies in the management of tourism on national level.
