Since 1960s, the Sardinian littorals have hosted an ever-higher number of tourists that caused loss of coastal habitat. Owing to the use of GIS programs, national and regional statistical databases, this paper presents the results of the analysis on tourism accommodation structures along the Sardinian coastal belt. The north- south polarization of tourism flows and building activity have soon become evident, showing the importance of considering the build-up within the process of environmental assessment.
