Due to the fact that sustainable tourism development means applying the concept of sustainability in the field of tourism, it is an idea economically viable, ecologically sustainable as well as socially equitable. Despite of its noticeable and inevitable value, there is no exact methodology for sustainability measurement, so the way out is detected in indicators assessment. With regards to application of sustainable tourism development indicators, various problems occur towards numerous criterions. This paper attempts to estimate sustainable tourism development indicators in Macedonia. In this respect, the research is based on various analyses made upon available secondary data collected through desk-research on descriptive statistics. The outcomes point out that Macedonia, opposite the most tourism-oriented countries, notes very modest results. Finally, the paper emphasizes the need for undertaking measures for improving the sustainability issue in general and particularly in tourism development. Moreover, it urges the necessity for identifying effective framework for enhancing tourism sustainability within all stakeholders involved in tourism process in Macedonia.
