Abstract
    Tourism contributes to the development of the coastal zone in a significant way to the extent that it sometimes displaces older activities and becomes the major earner. However, not infrequently the unbridled development of this resource leads to environmental damage. The Black Sea Romanian sector has an opportunity to redress excesses from the past and yet to foster a sustainable development by updating its health tourism. This paper examines the role that thalassotherapy could play in such scenario based on a wide examination of developments throughout the European scene.
