However, tourism also negatively impacts the physical environment of a place. Tourism can pose a threat to the depletion of natural resources of a country such as water supply, beaches, coral reefs and heritage sites. The overuse and increased pollution as a result of rising tourism activities in a place through traffic emissions and sewage production can lead to the destruction of natural resources of a region. The construction of roads, restaurants, malls and other places exploit the natural environment of a place by deforestation and increase in pollution. In Florida, a tourist destination known as ‘The Quay’ was completely deteriorated due to the rising tourism activities. In addition to this, the increase in the number of visitors in Florida had driven the need for the development of more accommodation and transportation facilities. This has resulted in deteriorating the quality of environment and has completely changed the appearance of the city. Thus, it can be said that tourism had both positive and negative impact on the communities and the negative impact of tourism should be overcome for realizing the benefits of positive impact of tourism on the sustainable community development in a country.
Tourism is the good platform to build or to receive the massive economic opportunities the specified regions but on the other hand government must notice the degradation in the natural resources due to over exploitation. It is sure that tourism sector contributes in creating the employment and also brings the huge investment.
