Abstract

Research into local community attitudes has been on the rise for the past two decades and various attempts have been made to identify the factors that influence residents' perceptions, opinions and attitudes toward tourism. Different surveys have brought to light an increasingly growing concern that tourist expansion could lead to environmental costs, such as the depletion and overexploitation of natural resources. This study analyses the relationship between tourism congestion and the local residents’ perceptions and attitudes toward tourism using the opinions of the Balearic Islands citizens. In general, the results show that a higher density of tourist accommodation in a municipality implies greater tolerance by its residents.
