Tourism can destroy ecosystems and cause coastal erosion. Such as the degradation of Kenyan Reefs. The Great Barrier Reef is protected and restricted for the purpose of minimising tourism, because of this reason. However, tourism can be managed sustainably to reduce ecosystem degradation and to educate about the environment. Coastal erosion includes erosion of footpaths.
