 Croatian littoral area is distinguished by unique attraction of its coast and islands, making a geographic basis for the development of nautical tourism as an authentic and recognizable Croatian „ tourist product“ . What is more, it may well be said that precisely nautical tourism is the original and most distinctive trademark of Croatian tourism, especially of its most important and most valuable part – the sea and adjacent unique natural coastal and insular areas. In spite of the present achievements in the development of nautical tourism, it has not yet achieved, in many parts and as a whole, the quality level to accord with the available spatial basis. Further undefined and unorganized development may become a serious threat to the long-term preservation of quality and attraction, and to the complete desired spatial-geographic and economic evaluation. Besides evident economic and social profits that were made in the development of nautical tourism in the past period, and all its consequences, such development has also been the cause of certain disadvantages. The survey of potential negative influences of marinas on the marine environment, and on its living world, imposes the obligation to harmonize the development of nautical tourism in Croatia with other priorities, following the principles of sustainable development. By applying sustainable development model in the strategic planning for the development of nautical tourism and complementary activities, Croatian most valuable natural potential can be used over the long term to improve economic-and-social image of the Croatian nautical area (seaboard and islands).
