Taken the Seventy-two Paths in Qinzhou as example, the ecological carrying capacity of the tourism planning of uninhabited islands group was studied in the Northern Gulf of Southern China. Based on ecological footprint model, uninhabited islands consumption model of tourism ecological footprint was the established, from the view of the restaurant, accommodation, traffic, entertainment, sightseeing and shopping. And then, the ecological deficit was calculated through the evaluation of the tourism carrying capacity of uninhabited islands. The results showed that, (1) according to the planning, 5319.03 ha of total ecological footprint was required to meet the needs of the expected tourists; (2) to provide ecological footprint planning area are 788.56ha, the ecological deficit is 4530.47ha, and the ecological deficit is 5.75 times to provided by the local ecological footprint. It cannot bear the demands of ecological footprint, and a large number of external inputs were needed to maintain the ecological equilibrium Seventy-two Paths. Consumption model of tourism ecological footprint of uninhabited island could provide some reference to the development of uninhabited island in Southern China. At the same time, the model could enrich the theory and application of ecological carrying capacity.
