Based on the principles of landscape ecology and applied GIS techniques, the performance of ecological suitability was analysed for Xiamen city.According to the demands of urban development planning to land-use the relationship among economical development, urban landscape and environmental protection was studied. Then, a landscape eco-planning was proposed for Xiamen city, which divided Xiamen city into four eco-functional zones and the main attributes, the major function and strategies of regulation and control for each zone were described accordingly. This landscape eco-planning would serve a scientific basis for the economical development, environmental protection and the foundation of “eco-city of bay type”, as well as a sound guideline for the eco-landscape planning of Chinese costal zones.
