The marine tourism industry has become one of the main industries in the economic development of coastal areas, which has rapidly promoted the development of urbanization in coastal areas. At the same time, with the rapid process of urbanization, the marine tourism industry is also developing rapidly, and interaction between the two is increasingly significant. With the rapid development of the marine tourism economy in China's coastal areas, the regional economy and urbanization in China's coastal areas have developed rapidly. Therefore, how to quantitatively analyze the coupling relationship between urbanization and the marine tourism industry has become a key issue, which is very important in studying the coordinated relationship between them. Urbanization and the development of the marine tourism industry is a benign interaction and harmonious symbiosis, which promotes the economic development of coastal areas. In this article, the coupling between them is studied quantitatively. Through data analysis, this article studies the coupling degree and coordination degree evaluation system based on comprehensive indicators. Then, this article constructs an interactive model of the marine tourism industry. Finally, this article puts forward some suggestions for the coordinated development of the marine tourism industry and urbanization.
