Proper recognition of the coastal area helps to make better use of this area. Due to high risk conditions and wide variations in the coastal area, studies of this area usually cost a lot. In this research, the relationships among the breaking wave height, the width of the breaking zone, and number of breakings have been investigated as visual assessment and processing of video images taken by conventional and UAV cameras. Study of correlation between these parameters indicates the possibility of estimating the target parameter from the available parameters data using the relationships provided. The breaking zone width and the height of first breaking wave are directly correlated with coefficient of 0.92 and the correlation coefficient between the number of breaking and the breaking zone width is 0.86. The maximum, minimum, and averages of breaking zone width are 100, 0 and 27 meters, respectively.
