Launch of the QualityCoast Destinations Top 100 and Regions Top 10

At the QualityCoast Event of 18 May in Portugal, EUCC will present the selection of the hundred greenest, cleanest and most sustainable holiday destinations of the European coast: the QualityCoast Top 100. This list of award winning destinations is the result of an extensive research of more than 800 coastal and Island destinations and of a rigourous selection process. These destinations are to be considered the most attractive for visitors interested in nature and landscape, a clean environment, local identity and cultural heritage, and interested visitors can find detailed information on each of these aspects in the QualityCoast public website. They will be promoted to tourists through the QualityCoast campaign as well as through a number of tour operators, e.g. those connected to TUI, the Netherlands.

European coastal regions will also be challenged to strengthen their commitment to sustainable coastal tourism through the launch of the QualityCoast Regions Top 10, on the basis of the scores of the Top 100 destinations within their regions. Regions can improve your ranking in the list for next year by encouraging coastal destinations to become certified through the QualityCoast programme.
