Serbian ExploreCorner Will Find A Perfect Beach For Your Perfect Summer Vacation!

Although many have already taken a summer vacation, including your beloved netocrats, others are just now starting their holiday on one of the exotic Mediterranean beaches or some other location. While islands like Zakynthos and Lefkada are attracting a lot of tourists for years now (mainly because of word-of-mouth recommendations form friends who have already been there), some of the most beautiful beaches always remain hidden from the eyes of the tourists.

Although many have already taken a summer vacation, including your beloved netocrats, others are just now starting their holiday on one of the exotic Mediterranean beaches or some other location. While islands like Zakynthos and Lefkada are attracting a lot of tourists for years now (mainly because of word-of-mouth recommendations form friends who have already been there), some of the most beautiful beaches always remain hidden from the eyes of the tourists.

Six-member team from Belgrade, Serbia, drawn by their own vacation experiences, decided to take matters into their own hands and create a centralized solution where the information on all the beaches of the world could be found. Named ExploreCorner, the Serbian startup aims to bring together information on a large number of beaches, as well as the written experience of traveling blogs who until now have been the only, oftentimes biased source of information one could find online about a specific beach.

This startup has created a special platform that enables users to search the world’s most beautiful beaches, as well as evaluate and comment them. The service currently supports over 20 countries including Greece, Turkey and Egypt, as well as some, four us at least, a bit distant and exotic destinations such as the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Australia and Indonesia.

Every beach has it’s own profile which contains additional information

In an interview for Netocratic, founder and CEO of ExploreCorner, Vladimir Kokovic, said that there are around 630 beautiful beaches entered so far and that the number is growing by the day thanks to the dedicated team and external contributors who review and manually enter all the necessary information.

Perfect beach of your choice!

ExploreCorner’s search engine is very detailed and allows users to choose the size and number of visits for the specific beach. Additional filters allow for a more comprehensive search such as specific type of sand, nearby parking, a restaurant, lounge chairs on the beach, etc. If by any chance you are into water sports, you can also search for a perfect beach which allows surfing or some other water-related activity.

At this moment we have 632 beaches in the data base, but in order for the users to have a full benefit of our services, we need 16,000 beaches for which we have only basic information for now.

Users can browse for a beach using an interactive map which groups them according to a particular region. When you click on the beach of your choice, you are prompted to its profile where you can see all the information about that location, including the weather forecast for the next seven days.

Booking accommodation as an option

Vladimir also pointed out that the first version of ExploreCorner is integrated with Booking.com through which users can book an accommodation near the beach. At the same time, the team is developing their own booking solution, however, they are not hiding that the accent is mainly on the search and information feature at this time.

There are a number of priorities we have to research and test out in order for the service to be of value for end users. Without them, an in-house booking system wouldn’t make any sense.

ExploreCorner certainly has all the potential to become a serious global player when it comes to online tourism. Coordinated and experienced team, which has years of mutual work-time under their belt, is fully aware of the project’s size, and as they say, it’s the main reason they do not want to rush things. Instead, they are slowly but steadily testing current features in order to fully optimize the service for the users and create the larger database of the world’s most gorgeous beaches.
