About this book

While coastal tourism has been treated from many perspectives, Tourism vs Environment: The Case for Coastal Areas offers the first substantial examination of the environmental basis of coastal tourism.

The first part of Tourism vs Environment: The Case for Coastal Areas examines some of the basic aspects and various methodologies of the coastal environment for tourism. Drawing from a wide range of case studies, the second part of Tourism vs Environment discusses various tourism – environment relationships of different coastal environments. The examples include atolls and enclave tourism, island tourism and tourism development at various stages, barrier coasts and tourism development at different stages, and complex coastal environments and more mature tourism development.

The writers have adopted one or a combination of approaches – empirical, methodological or conceptual – in their contributions. Tourism vs Environment: The Case for Coastal Areas should stimulate awareness and further research on the coastal environment for tourism.
