Abstract

This paper explores the threats posed by climate change to beach recreation and tourism values and identifies generic strategies that might be adopted by coastal and tourism managers to protect these values into the future. The research is based primarily on analysis of coastal management projects on the east coast of Australia. It identifies five generic strategies for minimizing the impacts of climate change on beach recreation and tourism values and provides examples of each. These strategies aim to protect existing beach recreation values, increase the supply of alternative recreation sites, minimise the tourism impacts of negative media coverage of beach erosion, and encourage adaptive action by beach users. The implications for recreationalists and tourism managers of each of these strategies are discussed.
