Pantai Panjang Bengkulu City is a beach directly facing the Indian Ocean, located in the western part of the island of Sumatra, has a length of 7 km, has a beautiful view and easy access to reach it, so it is designated as a leading tourist area of Bengkulu city. The purpose of this study is to analyze land suitability and tourism suitability developed in the “Pantai Panjang” tourist area. This study uses primary data and secondary data. The study of land suitability as a tourist area is carried out by delineating coastal areas by pulling 100 meters inland, calculated from the limit of the highest tide point. In this study, spatial analysis through a weighting overlay process was carried out to obtain the suitability of the tourism area land with land cover and water depth parameters.
