Motives: The present research was undertaken to address the general scarcity of studies addressing tourism seasonality.
Aim: The main aim of the study was to identify differences in the spatial development of seaside towns during and outside the summer season based on the example of the Polish towns of Puck and Władysławowo. Specific objectives included analyses and evaluations of tourist services offered in the examined towns, permanent development solutions, tourism seasonality, the applied and applicable spatial policy tools, and the local residents’ opinions on tourist traffic, seasonal development of seaside resorts, and the appeal of spatial development projects in these towns.
Results: The results of the study contribute to a better understanding of tourism seasonality in seaside towns from multiple perspectives.
