Sustainable tourism basically governs human and environmental relations based on the principles of sustainable development. Thus the critical challenge for policy-makers is how to ensure sustainability, quality and human and environmental issues in the tourism sector. Tourism Area of Karang Jahe Beach (KJB) according to Plan of Utilization of WP3K Spatial Allocation of Central Java Province is included in tourism zone. The growth of nature tourism in this area is quite rapid over the last three years with the typology of mass tourism. The growth of nature-based tourism activities encourages economic growth and the welfare of the people. But in its implementation, nature tourism activities become very susceptible to interference due to human intervention. Considering the ecosystem's richness in the coastal area, the economic potential and the complexity of tourism management in coastal areas, the planning of sustainable tourism development should be a serious concern of stakeholders, including coastal tourism in Karang Jahe Beach. The relevance of sustainable tourism development planning in Karang Jahe Beach can be seen from several issues 1 economic, 2 social, 3 environment and 4 legal. A Touristic Ecological Footprint can be used as an approach to assess the environmental carrying capacity and formulate a coastal tourism development strategy. Carrying capacity-based ecotourism development is expected to play an important role in realizing low carbon community development..
