Abstract: abstract:With the expansion of public transport, car ownership, outbound travel, nature-based eco-tourism, and the adoption of the five-day work week, marine and island eco-tourism are expected to have a promising future; however fundamental preparation and management planning is needed to ensure this. This study examines the feasibility of developing Wang-An Island of the Pescadores archipelago as an eco-tourism site. Surveys of both on-site travelers and local residents were carried out in years of 2002 and 2003. Contingent valuation a travel cost methods were used to estimate the recreational value, analyze tourist behavior and residents' willingness-to-pay for preserving Wang-An Island. The SWOT method was used to identify positive and negative crucial factors related to the development, operation and management of eco-tourism on the Island. Finally, a community-based eco-tourism model was developed to provide a decision support mechanism for a sustainable island eco-tourism industry. Results of this research provide insights on policies and management for developing eco-tourism on other ocean islands.
