The development of regional economy and strategic decision-making are inseparable from cultural development, and the continuous accumulation and dissemination of marine culture have provided a direction for the development of coastal cities and their industrial planning. Marine culture does not exist by itself but attaches to an entity and reflects through it. Based on the marine culture of Jiangsu Province, China, this paper analyzes the development characteristics of marine culture in Jiangsu Province, and explores landscape design schemes for coastal cities. The research results show that the marine culture industry in Jiangsu Province presents three spatial structures: the scatter structure, the pole-axis structure, and the network structure. The development trend gets more inclined to the alliance regional linkage model and the virtual creative industry park model. In terms of overall planning, detailed planning and design, the landscape design should pay close attention to the role of coastline and skyline. The landscape design in some coastal cities in Jiangsu Province has fully reflected the economic value of coastal cities. The research in this paper has provided a theoretical basis for promoting the development and dissemination of marine culture in coastal cities.
