4.1 General
Coasts around the world face increasing demands to cater for a wide range of recreational activities, with millions of tourists visiting coastal areas each year. Tourism is the world’s third largest industry and the primary economic sector in many regions. As a result, there is increasing competition for the use of resources in coastal waters and beach areas. Beach activities are becoming more varied, ranging from para-karting to power boating; swimming to sailing and from horse riding to beach barbequing. Many activities, particularly those involving more active participation, require some form of management to reduce potential conflict between different user groups, and trying to cater for such a diverse range of activities can cause difficulties. Not only do conflicts need to be resolved between different users, but differences between locals and tourists also need to be considered. The requirements of local residents differ from those of tourists, and balancing their respective needs is a major contributory factor in successful beach use and management.
