The South Coast Special Interest Area of ​​South West Java is an area that will be developed based on the West Java Province Tourism Development Master Plan in 2016-2025. This plan is a follow-up to the Indonesian Government's program that continues to improve the tourism sector. the success of the development is expected to significantly increase the number of visitors. It should be understood that increasing visitors will increase foreign exchange and the economy of the community but will lead to a risk. This study aims to make risk assessments that occur in this area so that it will provide prevention information on risks that might occur. Qualitative results are observed and interviewed. it was found that the risk was caused by low public awareness, lack of preparedness of the local government in developing the tourism sector, a conflict of interest because the south coast was owned by three districts and other reasons.
