Tourists wanting to stay at a hotel in Makarska on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast during the peak summer season this year may have to find alternative accommodation. Croatian radiotelevision reports that Makarska’s hotels have already been booked out to capacity during the peak season.
The news has got the local council into action. Work is currently being carried out upgrading hotels and also on building a port, which will be able to cater for up to 50 extra boats this season. It is not only boaters who the council are looking after, there will be something for those looking to get active also whilst on holiday as they plan to build a new bike track.
The council will also invest in a panoramic lift for one of its main hotel’s, Hotel Dalmacija, but it says that private accommodation will play a big part too this season. The largest group of tourists last year in Makarska came from Poland, a group who traditionally seek private accommodation.
