Land subsidence is a problem that often occurs in lowland areas. The impact of land subsidence causes losses in the economic, physical, ecological and social aspects. The impact of land subsidence could be felt directly and indirectly by the people, so an evaluation of the most frequent (dominant) impacts needs to be done. One method that could be use for assesment using AHP, using pairwise comparisons can be obtained the most frequent (dominant) land subsidence impact. From the results of the study indicate that the direct impact due to land subsidence (weight 0.608)) is more dominant than the indirect impact (0.392). Based on the value of each parameter, three dominant land subsidence impacts are infrastructure damage with a value of 0.387, an increase in the cost of infrastructure construction and maintenance with a value of 0.193 and a flood of 0.129. The results of observations and ground checking at the Tanjung Api-Api area, there was damage to several floors of residents' homes, damage to road and tilt of trees which were damaged in the economic field was the most dominant impact. While floods and seawater intrusion are not dominant in this area because the area is located in the tidal area.
