How does tourism contribute to coastal erosion?
Land-based activities such as port development and the dredging that inevitably accompanies it in order to receive cruise ships with sometimes more than 3000 passengers can significantly degrade coral reefs through the build-up of sediment. Furthermore, sand mining at the beaches leads to coastal erosion.
How does tourism affect marine life?
Effluents have a lot of negative consequences for local waterways and oceans. They cause pollution, reduce animal life, and damage human and animal communities. They ultimately reduce the beauty of the natural landscape and pollute the local communities.

What are the negative impacts of tourism?
Tourism puts enormous stress on local land use, and can lead to soil erosion, increased pollution, natural habitat loss, and more pressure on endangered species. These effects can gradually destroy the environmental resources on which tourism itself depends.
How does tourism affect the coastal environment?
Loss of habitat reduce the size of wetlands and other coastal ecosystems that are the basis of nature- based tourism. Increase size of habitats, for example through restoration of wetlands, system repair, land swaps, compensation projects, development moratorium, etc.
What are the advantages of coastal development?
Coastal areas help prevent erosion; filter pollutants; and provide food, shelter, breeding areas, and nursery grounds for a wide variety of organisms.
How can you manage the effects of coastal erosion?
Breakwaters are structures constructed on coasts as part of coastal defense or to protect an anchorage from the effects of weather and long shore drift. Offshore breakwaters, also called bulkheads, reduce the intensity of wave action in inshore waters and thereby reduce coastal erosion.
How do you mitigate coastal erosion?
Mitigation Methods for Coastal Erosion
- Dune rehabilitation: Drift fencing and dune re-vegetation prevent the loss of wind-blown sand inland and help with dune stability.
- Green belts: series of trees in a number of rows to protect the coast from onslaught of waves.
What are the positive and negative effects of tourism on environment?
There are both positive and negative effects of tourism. One positive effect is that jobs are created. A negative effect of tourism is the depletion of natural resources such as water. Pollution such as litter, sewage, and air pollution are all concerns.
