Tourist resorts recorded 140.846 overnight stays (a 12 percent participation), which is 33 percent increase compared to 2018. This increase was partly due to the change in the Valalta categorization, which divided the existing accommodation capacities into campsite units and permanent facilities which are separately recorded under the category tourist resort.
The aforementioned tourist turnover was realized with a total capacity of 38,536 beds, which is 1,150 beds more than last year by 3 per cent, mainly as a result of increased capacity in the Amarin campsite due to the newly opened Grand Park Hotel, in other smaller accommodation facilities and in private accommodation.
