Tourism and Recreation

Maintaining the attraction of coastal destinations
Coastal and marine tourism is a vital part of a country’s economy. It is difficult to measure the actual number of people directly participating in tourism. Coastal parks visit numbers and coastal hotel room numbers and occupancy data were used to assess the number of people enjoying the coast.
About this score

 A high score means that park visit numbers are the highest ever recorded, hotel room numbers are reaching the Ministry of Tourism targets, and that there is a high score for tourism competitiveness reported in Israel. The Tourism and Recreation score shows that while coastal parks are visited as much as ever, coastal hotel tourism in all cities can develop further (apart from Tel Aviv) and would benefit by improvement in competitiveness.
