This study is aimed to identify common issues in urban tourism where Manado Waterfront Development existed. Manado waterfront was expected to be the focus of residents’ activities in support of tourism and community development. Urban tourism has been used to create economic growth by providing new employment opportunities and by increasing business capacity. The current study has shown that Manado Waterfront Development and land reclamation were originally intended to maximize the city’s potentials as a tourist destination and also to promote commercial development for economic gains. The study emphasizes that successful waterfront development must address multiple needs and uses, including tourism. This study involves questionnaire survey on the field and on-site observations to provide evidences of waterfront development in Manado, Indonesia. The present study makes several noteworthy contributions that confirm the interdependence between coastal zone planning and management, waterfront development and land reclamation in coastal areas. As an important part of the city’s tourism development, Manado Waterfront Development inevitably involves the use of coastal resources. While the rapid growth of Manado Waterfront Development within Manado Bay was perhaps unavoidable, many of the negative impacts of the project could have been avoided if clear guidelines had been put in place and implemented.
