In Civilization V, a coastal tile is a land tile that is directly adjacent to one or more coast tiles.

A coastal city is a city founded on a coastal tile. All naval units, as well as several buildings and wonders, can be built only in coastal cities. However, such cities are also subject to attack by naval melee units, and will need to be defended appropriately.
