Today, the environment and its threatening problems is one of the most vital challenges facing diverse societies. Therefore, this issue overshadows various dimensions of new plans and ideas promoting within the society. Architecture, as one of the structures that is closely related to the earth and the face of nature, can play a chief role in environmental issues. The Kish Island, considered by the tourism and cultural sector, is one of the most central and strategic areas in the current geography of Iran; therefore, the study of coastal architecture and the environmental challenges is an essential and evaluable issue. The present research is applied in terms of purpose and descriptive-analytical research in terms of method and nature. In this study, while introducing coastal tourism, the role of tourists and the environmental effects of related projects in the destruction of the environment and coastal architecture of Kish Island have been studied. Moreover, the collected data have been processed and analyzed using the SWOT analytical model. Findings confirm that based on the internal factors evaluation matrix, internal factors have not reacted well in tourism and coastal architecture and strengths and weaknesses have not been applied appropriately. Also, the study of external factors evaluation matrix shows that organizations and tourists in coastal architecture and tourism have reacted relatively well to external factor; and despite internal weakness, with the use of matrix-based interactive strategies based on the optimal strategy, the existing opportunities can be applied to remove obstacles.
