Smart travelers now expect some elements of sustainability when they travel—and welcome it when it goes beyond picking up towels and reusable soap containers. Sustainability, to us, is about preserving and protecting the place we love the most.
At La Perouse we have taken steps to promote responsible tourism :
Responsible tourism is any form of tourism that can be consumed in a more responsible way.
“Responsible tourism is tourism which:
minimizes negative social, economic and environmental impacts
generates greater economic benefits for local people and enhances the well-being of host communities
improves working conditions and access to the industry
involves local people in decisions that affect their lives and life chances
makes positive contributions to the conservation of natural and cultural heritage embracing diversity
provides more enjoyable experiences for tourists through more meaningful connections with local people, and a greater understanding of local cultural, social and environmental issues
provides access for physically challenged people
is culturally sensitive, encourages respect between tourists and hosts, and builds local pride and confidence
