The geoecological evaluation of the relief of Pašman Island from the standpoint of its touristic evaluation was conducted on the previously conducted geomorphologic analysis of the island relief. The evaluation was conducted for the needs of specific types of touristic activities (swimming, sunbathing, walking, "škraping") in the sense of its physical favourability, aesthetic value and accessibility.The method of relative relief evaluation was applied, whereby relief was evaluated within four morphographic categories: slopes, peaks, valley bottoms and beds and the coast. According to this method, as the principal restricting factor of tourist evaluation of certain parts of Pašman Island is the problem of inaccessibility, especially on the steeper south-west façade of the island (remoteness, inexistence or lack of arranged paths and wharfs). In accordance therewith, several proposals as possible solutions to the present problem were given (arrangement of paths, informing tourists on possible individual or group walks to certain destinations, organising trips with professional guides).
