In such conditions, tourist traffic is limited by an infrastructure barrier. In this decade, tourism traffic has been influenced not only by national political turmoil, but also by incidents of a social nature. In October , a crowd lynched two French tourists on the beach. Decreasing tourist service quality and extortion attempts account for the decline in popularity of hotels on Nosy Iranja and their disappearance from tourist websites. The number of decidedly critical reviews on Tripadvisor.
There were also allegations concerning the degradation of the natural environment, corruption, exorbitant prices, and the poor technical condition of the facility with an entry from This island has enormous potential: the sea is crystal clear, the white beach where there are lots of eggs of sea turtles, which can be admired at the time of deposition of the birth. We were lucky enough to attend both events.

But after two nights we escaped! The Resort is decadent and should undergo many systematic restructurings. By spending almost euro per day is right to offer a structure and an adequate service. Based on the characteristics of Nosy Be and neighbouring islands, five types of tourist use Fig. Small islands and the types of their tourist use. Explanation of the types in the text After: Jedrusik b. Type I — tourist enclaves, small islands 1—2 km 2 originally uninhabited, with luxury hotels. Limited access for locals. Type II — larger, inhabited islands, mixed tourism.
Diverse standards of hotel, frequently for one-day trips. This hypothetical model was developed almost 40 years ago. Over the past four decades, huge global changes in tourism have been observed all over the world. Butler used the examples of areas of various sizes, from individual tourist destinations to countries and even significant portions of continents. Such a synthetic view of the phenomenon is of value, but it obscures nuances. Where would this concept place Nosy Be?
The lack of accurate statistics on the number of tourists of course makes precise analysis difficult.

For simplicity, it may therefore be assumed that the stream of tourists arriving on Nosy Be and its changes correspond to tourist traffic into Madagascar. The author also describes the features of a decline and a rejuvenation stage, but these are inadequate in the context of Nosy Be and the neighbouring archipelago.
Nosy Iranja Kely is the only example of the next stage of decline in the study area. However, there is no objective and sufficient data on which to draw deeper conclusions about this area. The observations about Nosy Be and its neighbouring islands gathered together here, in combination with R. So, in the tourist development of the archipelago, it is difficult to notice all the stages of the cycle proposed by R.
The evolution of this tourist area has skipped certain stages.
The momentum of the evolutionary cycle may be difficult to determine. The pace of evolution varies, and is not even one-way, because the underdevelopment of the area and external circumstances may cause a regression in development which was particularly visible in the years — However, the financial success of island—hotels may lead to further investments on other small, uninhabited islands of the area. The capital interest in the surrounding area is visible on websites.
This and the expansion of Fascene Airport is creating an opportunity for Nosy Be to break its stagnation. This leaves foreign capital, and this may lead to tourism neo-colonialism. Investments in improving infrastructure quality aim to increase tourist traffic. It is hard not to notice that many tropical islands are competing for the same type of tourists, including in this region the Mascarenes, Seychelles and Maldives.
Investments and growth in tourist traffic will allow the area to enter the next stage of the evolution cycle rejuvenation , but this will eradicate this value. So, is this a dream worth dreaming? Will it really be a rejuvenation? Introduction Today, Madagascar is becoming increasingly popular as a tourist destination, although tourist traffic is relatively light approx.
Madagascar as a tourist destination Madagascar attracts tourists for the singular nature of its environment including its high rate of endemic species. The touristic value of Nosy Be Nosy Be is the central point of an archipelago of over smaller islands whose areas do not exceed a few dozen square kilometres Fig. The evolution of tourism development Initiation — Connections to the sea have contributed to the development of the tourism infrastructure.

Some locally provided facilities will have disappeared being superseded by … external organizations, particularly for visitor accommodation. The area will have a well-established image, but it will no longer be in fashion [S1] …. Which of the above traits have been, and are, present on Nosy Be and neighbouring islands?

All this can improve the standard of living for residents as well as facilitate tourism. Contribution to local economies Tourism can be a significant or even an essential part of the local economy. Part of the tourism income comes from informal employment, such as street vendors and informal guides. The positive side of informal or unreported employment is that the money is returned to the local economy and has a great multiplier effect as it is spent over and over again.
Direct financial contributions to nature protection Tourism can contribute directly to the conservation of sensitive areas and habitats. Revenue from park-entrance fees and similar sources can be allocated specifically to pay for the protection and management of environmentally sensitive areas.
Some governments collect money in more far-reaching and indirect ways that are not linked to specific parks or conservation areas. User fees, income taxes, taxes on sales or rental of recreation equipment and license fees for activities such as hunting and fishing can provide governments with the funds needed to manage natural resources.
Competitive advantage More and more tour operators take an active approach towards sustainability. The Case for Coastal Areas should stimulate awareness and further research on the coastal environment for tourism. Benton Richard Fortey View All. Go to British Wildlife.
