(20% of all marine species can only be found in this basin).
The Mediterranean consists of 29 popular tourist destinations in North Africa, Middle East and Europe, and its coastline stretches out over 46,000 km skirting around 20 countries and hosting so many islands to count, like the Balearic and Lonian islands.
The top travel destinations in the Med are all coastal countries, with rich natural resources and long beaches. Such as Southern Spain, Corsica, Sicily, Greece, and Turkey with the promise of warm weather, good seafood and stunning scenery.
Some of the other beautiful but moderately famous destinations in the Med includes Croatia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and Tunisia and these are much quieter and secluded than the other top destinations but with equal glorious natural resources and beautiful scenery.
