India has immense potential in the coastal tourism segment. However, the development of coastal tourism is tied to the concept of sustainable tourism. We need to understand the complexity of the linkage between social and natural systems. Our focus is to promote local tourism in Indian coastal belt along with awareness campaign for conservation of natural flora and fauna. Read more about Coastal tourism India goals & initiatives.

According to recent study over 40% of the Indian coastline is eroding. This is a major cause of concern. We need to address basic issues like coastal environment degradation due to a host of human activities like pollution, unauthorised constructions abutting the coast. We can only address these issues thorough awareness and participation of multiple stakeholders including locals, administration & hotel owners. Raise your voice and work for a sustainable future.

We also invite local Tourism organisations, travel agents, restaurants, cabs & taxis, hotels, airlines to list their services on Coastal Tourism India web platform for free of cost to encourage more visitors to visit your State and avail your quality travel services.
