Waterfront development is acknowledged as being significant to urban tourism planning and, ideally, the involvement of multiple stakeholders should be required in the development program. This research argues that although the importance of urban waterfronts has been realized, planners do not always give sufficient attention to tourism uses of the waterfront in their plans. Tourism planning and waterfront development are commonly presented separately in different documents so that there is a lack of synergy between them. Waterfront and urban tourism developmetn might contribute to good practice for the planning and decision making processes for resource and environmental management, especially for long-term waterfront planning. Principles for the involvement of stakeholders in planning are reviewed and evaluated in the context of tourism and waterfront development in Manado, Indonesia. The principles of sustainable tourism development are assessed in a situation in which there is tension between the achievement of socio-economic benefits and the protection of environmental quality. This research involved desktop research and fieldwork comprising questionnaire surveys and on-site observations to provide evidences of waterfront development in Manado, and the planning process that preceded it. The study provides evidence of the links between waterfront development and tourism planning in a mid-sized city in a less-developed country. Governments and Manado waterfront developers expect high returns from MWD through increasing local revenues and a stronger regional economy. However, the sustainability of the development is debatable. A stronger economy, increased incomes and wider job opportunities are widely acknowledged, but an enhanced quality of life for local people is not yet certain, especially if environmental degradation continues.
