On the basis of survey on tourism resources in the Xisha Islands, an evaluation was made on the tourism resources by using the comprehensive evaluation system of island tourism resources of Li Yuezheng. According to the characteristics of the island tourism resources, an index system for evaluation of island tourism resources was built, 58 indicators were selected as representatives on four levels, namely, the overall target level, the comprehensive evaluation level, the evaluation item level and the evaluation factor level, the Likert five grade scale was used to standardize the evaluation indexes, the principal component analysis was used to endow each index with corresponding weight, and then a comprehensive evaluation model was established by making rating standards and determining the evaluation index weights. The results show that the score on overall target level in the tourism resources evaluation system of the Xisha Islands is 3.088 points, which indicate that the overall evaluation of island tourism resources in the Xisha Islands is medium. The results also show that the Xisha Islands have rich tourism resources, medium regional conditions, poor geographical features, favorable natural resources, prominent tropical island features, and distinct environmental restrictions. In short, the tourism resources of the islands have obviously both advantages and disadvantages.
