With its sunny climate, warm blue seas, natural riches, and long cultural history, the Mediterranean is a huge draw for holidaymakers. Each year the region attracts over 300 million international visitors and one third come to holiday by the sea – whether it is boating, swimming, diving or just relaxing on the beach. Tourism is also a major industry, bringing employment and much needed income to areas where jobs can be hard to find.
Yet there is a downside to mass tourism: over half of the Mediterranean coast has now been concreted over and some pristine locations have been damaged by over development; towns and villages can be swamped by tourists and wildlife and nature can be harmed; hotels and tourist facilities can use too much water and create unmanageable waste and pollution. Decades of mass tourism have damaged the very natural beauty that attracted visitors in the first place.
Fewer people are opting for package holidays, and increasing numbers of people are looking for a different type of holiday involving independent travel and a more responsible approach.
