This paper examines the perceptions of Greek and Turkish Cypriot residents of coastal tourism development. Although Butler's hypothesis - that there will be an inverse relationship between the level of tourism development and perceived impacts for the worse on the social, economic and environmental status of the host community - is largely confirmed, a significant proportion of uncertain responses in the less developed area surveyed lead us to suggest a modification of the Butler hypothesis.
