We examined the relationships between expected tourism impacts, attitudes toward local tourism development, and behavioral intention to support local tourism development using data collected from residents of Penghu, Taiwan. The results indicated that expected tourism impacts are perceived to be multidimensional, attitudes differ towards current and future tourism development, and support for and objection to tourism development are separate constructs. Further, the effects of beliefs (i.e., tourism impacts) on attitudes and intentions are not as straightforward as previous research has suggested. Study limitations, implications, and recommendation for future research are discussed.
