"We introduced a new model for touristic development"
Costa Navarino has been developed with the vision to place Messinia in the world tourism map, while protecting and preserving its nature and heritage. Here, at Greece’s prime sustainable destination and one of the biggest tourism developments in the Mediterranean, we introduced a new model for touristic development. A model that is based on sustainability and its success is based on the success of the overall region: a concept that has become a best practice example globally.
This vision for a sustainable touristic development is applied through our business policy, in our everyday operation, comprising a fundamental element of the identity of the destination. For this purpose, we allocated more than 10% of the 550 million Euros budget of the first development phase, to the implementation of our environmental infrastructure and practices. This approach has been recognized not only from the local community via its unanimous support, but also on an international level, setting Costa Navarino as a global paradigm of sustainable tourism development.
