Thomson Holidays to Return to Central Dalmatia after 24 Years

Igrane,_Croatia

More good news for tourism in Central Dalmatia, as leading British tour operatorThomson has announced it will once more feature the Central Dalmatian coast in its 2015 offer, for the first time since 1991. From next summer, two flights a week will operate from Manchester and Gatwick, with British tourists accommodated in the Adriatic Beach Hotel near Igrane.

Product director Mark Hall said: “Demand for Croatia is increasing. The Dalmatian Coast is a less explored region of Croatia on the Adriatic Sea, but we needed to find the right hotel in order to offer it. This is the right hotel and the right time to go back.”

The region stretches from Trogir in the north to the islands of Brac and Hvar in the south along the coastline known as the Makarska Riviera. The city of Split, also part of the Dalmatian Coast, is home to the UNESCO-protected Roman ruins, Diocletian’s Palace.

The announcment is the latest piece of good news concerning British tourists on the Dalmatian coast, which experienced a sharp rise in UK arrivals in 2013.
