ABSTRACT Utilization and development of coastal sandy land for agriculture and tourism has been started since the farm area decreased year by year for non-agricultural purposes (housing and industry) along with the increasing of population number and development. The potencies of coastal sandy land are their huge area, topography, climate and number of human resources. The weaknesses are their sand texture, porous soil, lack of nutrient and organic matter, and high soil surface temperature due to its open air, besides their heavy winds with salt particles that possible to disturb the plant growth. Those heavy winds also make very interesting sand dunes at certain points, beautify the scenery of the South beach of Java. Therefore, unification of tourism and agricultural potency may open up prospective agro-tourism opportunities. It is likely that after enjoying sound of the South beach waves and fantastic sand dunes, both the foreign and domestic tourists can continue their trip for visiting the farmer activities such as preparing farm, cultivating and harvesting the crops, and they can spending money buying some agricultural products as souvenirs. For agricultural purposes at the coastal land, the farmers should not disturb the existence of sand dunes that is part of the efforts to maintain and preserve the environment. Thus, it is very appropriate if the coastal sandy land development is conducted integrated of both agricultural and tourism purposes in broad sense. Keywords: potential,development, coastal sandy land, agriculture, tourism
