Surfing has finally become popular on Croatia's beaches, no, not the type of surfing that requires a surfboard, but surfing on the internet which is being provided free of charge at beaches up and down Croatia's Adriatic coast.
Wi-Fi hotspots at beaches has taken off, with alot of tourists even selecting which beach they go for a swim at based on wi-fi internet access.
Smart phones have now become just as important as a towel and swim suits at the beach. An unofficial list of free wi-fi locations in Croatia has been created by users on Facebook, with many beaches, waterfronts and cafes on beaches offering free wi-fi.
Croatian cafe owners realise the ever increasing importance of keeping up with the latest tehcnology.
"When tourists come to the cafe the first question they ask is do we have free internet, when we say we do then they are staying longer using the internet and buying more drinks as a result," said one cafe owner to RTL television.
Croatia is rapidly improving its wi-fi internet facilities. This summer ACI marina has secured free internet access for boaters, and efforts are being made to make free wi-fi available at all airports. Next year train and bus stations will provide free intenet access.
