The island Fanoe is a magnificient example of cultural and natural heritage in Denmark. Fanoe offers more then one would consider at the first sight. The esence of surprise makes this places especially magic. Well-preserved houses together with tidy surroundings evoke that local inhabitants seriously care about their living space. According to advertised evets island seems to be socially active as well. There are several festivals held during a year. These give a particular opportunity to socialize and create a common sense of feelings toward a future development. Majority of inhabitants are said to be  a members of at least one association on the Island. The community gives the impression of being strong and interrelated.

The peak season for Fanoe from a touristic point of view is the summer. The island’s  economy depends on an amount of incoming tourists each year. Therefore, it’s crutial to maintain or even increase the numbers in the future. Tourists can choice from a wide range of activities during the summer. Walking, cycling, horse riding, seal or bird watching,  golf and even kite surfing represent the core of  outdoor activites on the island.

Marco’s dilemma described as “whether to let the nature live it’s own wild life or systematiclly co-ordinate the development” opens an entirely new space for discussion. The Wadden Sea Region has been proclaimed the National Park in October 2010 (www.visitesbjerg.dk). This fact raises a question about the protection. The serious regulations would need to be put into action in order to protect the natural heritage from a growing number of visitors. The consequent impacts as water and air pollution, increase of noise and for instance also tresppasing would need to be dealt accordinglly.

The natural attractiveness of the island is in my opinion hidden in well-preserved buildings, peaceful atmosphere, generous privacy and particular number of outdoor activities. The current trends in tourism call for packaging, shorter trips which allow to escape and refresh from a working routine. Fanoe may see a chance to adjust but in the sustainable tourism development  people should firstly see the overall future benefits, not a financial gain.
