ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to establish an ecotourism opportunity spectrum (SIEOS) for a "nature based" small island. In this study, six zones of 'Recreation Opportunity Spectrum' (ROS) were applied to Udo in Jeju, resulting in four SIEOS areas of interest: primitive class, rustic class, concentrated class, and modernized class. The SIEOS results suggest that some strategies, like imposing a fine, limiting roads, limiting time, and providing other site information were suited for better management of Udo as an ecotourism destination. SIEOS consisted of seven steps, and was less cumbersome than other management tools like ROS and ECOS. It can be concluded from this study that SIOES can be applied to other similar small island ecotourism destinations such as Gapado, Marado, and Bogildo because they have similar ecological and managemental problems similar to Udo.
