This investigation presents a methodological proposal, based on multicriteria spatial analysis, which identifies Bolivar Department coastal areas most susceptible, and likewise the resistant ones to threats of marine origin, to improve solid basis and for the development of scientific recommendations and proposed risk management schemes. The criteria used as the basis of the analysis were geomorphology, land cover and wave climate near to the study area, on which the Analytical Hierarchy Process technique were applied for weighting the variables and finally using Geographic Information System tools, a weighted superposition of multi-criteria decision problems was performed. Spatial results were satisfactory, as the location of the most sensitive areas of the coast. However, it showed the need for primary information sources specific standards according to the objective of the study to be performed.
