Book Description:
Tourism has been identified has a major sector of economic activity since the latter part of the twentieth century. Its importance has been growing and the diversification of tourism products and destinations has led to the increase in demand for tourism associated with natural and man-shaped landscapes, most of which are highly susceptible to anthropic impacts. This book deals with different sustainable tourism approaches, as the main pathways for the economic development in the Mediterranean region. The topics that are discussed in this book encompass a differentiated and detailed overview of the Mediterranean tourism destinations from a sustainable perspective. It will present study cases of traditional and new touristic options as the adaptation of long lasting activities, as hunting and nautical, to the needs of nowadays touristic markets, and new touristic approaches to the Mediterranean landscape, such as golf.
