The paper analyse the promotion and stimulation of tourism activities, as part of rural sustainable development in Dobrudgea. The methodology used is based on the quantitative data analysis regarding the tourism potential from Dobrudgea's countryside that is not known by tourists. The statistical data were completed with other information from articles and studies published in specialty journals. The investigation of relations that exist between the social and environmental factors, at local level, makes it possible to define the necessary mechanisms for the sustainable development of tourism activities that should contribute to the increase of the number of jobs and of alternative incomes by using and maintaining the local labor resources and revitalization of rural localities, as well as to the increase of Dobrudgea area attractiveness.
