This paper focuses on the economic evaluation of the recreational use of Barcola seafront in Trieste (Italy). Within the EU DELOS (2000) framework a contingent valuation survey in the value of enjoyment version was carried out in order to estimate the gain for a project of building a new artificial beach on the Barcola seafront. The project satisfies sustainable tourism development. Evaluation questions not only about the beach use in spring/summer but also in autumn/winter were included in the questionnaire. The survey results show that the beach use value changes for different seasons. In addition, the hypothetical new beach would attract new visitors.

Abstract

This paper focuses on the economic evaluation of the recreational use of Barcola seafront in Trieste (Italy). Within the EU DELOS (2000) framework a contingent valuation survey in the value of enjoyment version was carried out in order to estimate the gain for a project of building a new artificial beach on the Barcola seafront. The project satisfies sustainable tourism development. Evaluation questions not only about the beach use in spring/summer but also in autumn/winter were included in the questionnaire. The survey results show that the beach use value changes for different seasons. In addition, the hypothetical new beach would attract new visitors.
