Background of the Study: In spite of the negative effects of tourism on the natural and cultural environment, tourism is often considered to be a positive aspect for the revenue generation and development of a place. Planning is the most important part of tourism and if this part is neglected in the policy formulation and in the practical implementation of the policy on grounds, the tourism can bring out disastrous outcomes resulting in the destruction of the destination and its products and this can be done only once the tribulations due to tourism are identified in a place. Theoretical Background: The South Andaman District of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands is the most populated district in terms of the local population as well as the tourist population. It is considered to be the tourists hub as it has the maximum fall of tourists compared to the other district of these islands. This paper would identify the problems caused due to tourism in the South Andaman District and also find out the difference in the opinions of the different stakeholders further helping the tourism policy makers and planners to maintain sustainability in tourism practices. Methodology: The primary data collection was done through survey method. A questionnaire was constructed by extracting the variables related to the problems faced by the island destinations due to the development of tourism in the area and was pre tested by discussing it with the academic and industry experts in the field. Factor analysis was used to validate the questionnaire and reduce the items into important factors. The data was analyzed using SPSS 16.0. The Kruskal-Wallis test was used which gave results of the significant difference in opinion of the three categories of the stakeholders as the data checked was not normally distributed. Research Outcomes: The research findings would help the Andaman and Nicobar Islands to rectify the hurdles and work on the policy and its implementation accordingly. These findings would possibly provide an insight for the administrators of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and help them identify difficulties faced by the stakeholder and eliminate them for a better and sustainable tourism industry in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
