Abstract

Tourism is one of the most rapidly growing economic and services sectors in the world. It has prompted several countries to develop and expand their tourism sectors, including Indonesia. Tourism destinations will support an effort towards local and national development of this country. One of the most potential regions for tourism in Indonesia is Banyuwangi regency, with Red Island Beach as one of its tourism destinations. The sustainable development towards Red Island Beach is necessarily significant concerning the destinations as part of the Wonderful Indonesia strategy, especially Sunrise van Java. The results were converted into marine tourism index and called as Indeks Keberlanjutan Wisata Bahari (IKBW), that had five dimensions, including ecology, economy, social culture, institutional, and technology and infrastructure dimensions. The technology and infrastructure dimensions showing the highest score of MDS analysis indicated the development towards this sector is sufficiently sustainable and appropriate. Contrary, the lowest score of MDS analysis was revealed in the economic dimension indicated less sustainability; this dimension is related to the economic growth of the local people in Red Island Beach. The development towards both dimensions needed for the sustainability of Red Island Beach based on the high and low scores on either dimension.
