This research is aimed at quantifying the importance of coastal cities in the world. The study includes a detailed analysis of all cities with over 100,000 inhabitants, from 1945 to the present. Coastal cities have been differentiated from the inland cities. To do this, two sources of information were used: analysis of databases United Nations and Google Earth remote sensing. When these two sources are related, allowing a fairly accurate study of the coastal urban world stage. The vision of this research is dynamic because it pays close attention to the changing nature of urbanization phenomenon in the world's coastlines. The result is of great importance for the Integrated Coastal Zone Management. The increasing number of cities and population in the coastal zone exerts enormous pressure on coastal and marine ecosystems. It is possible that the new scenario that is observed on the coasts of the world also requires new management approaches.
