Tourism management in warm-water island destinations: systems and strategies.

Book cover for Tourism management in warm-water island destinations: systems and strategies.


This volume focuses on the management of tourism in island environments, particularly in the Caribbean. The first part of the book (chapters 2-5) is about resources for islands, including transport and hospitality, and demand for islands. This part addresses the core resources of tourism products and services to suggest principles and practices to manage these in island environments. The second part (chapters 6-8) concerns tourism policy, planning and development to guide appropriate forms of tourism development that will create benefit for islanders. The third part (chapters 9-11) deals with tourism marketing and management's role in exploring new strategies that can be adopted for successful island tourism management. The volume also includes a review, in chapter 12, of the network methodological approach for understanding island tourism and suggests that a new approach is needed to develop island tourism research.
