Abstract
    As developing tourism endangers the environment today we should recognise people’s rest preferences, knowledge and lifestyle to protect and properly use coastal natural values. This paper shows some conclusions from data collected on the basis of the questionnaire (22 questions and 200 respondents) carried out with tourists in the years 2002 and 2003 on Polish beaches. The main research question was on what tourists’ ecological awareness depends? In many questions education, pollution and litters were the main problems pointed by asked tourists. But also it is clearly visible, that people do not want a lot of buildings and infrastructure close to the beach. For them bigger value is the natural landscape and environment in which they can really rest.
