The town of Rab has recently hosted the QualityCoast awards ceremony, which was awarded to the island of Rab in May by the Coastal Marine Union. This organisation is the result of a collaboration among eleven EU countries with the aim of creating worldwide network of seaside destinations that share the same values in the sustainable development. To become member of the European Coastal and Marine Union, candidates have to meet very strict criteria, which are important for winning this prestigious international award. Let us also remind that the island of Rab is the first in Croatia and the only seaside destination in this part of Europe to become member of this organisation and the winner of this prestigious award.
