Geomorphology is a landform that extends on the surface of the earth as a result of interactions between endogenous and exogenous processes. Landform classification based on morphometry, morphogenesis, and morphoarengement. Kebumen has attractive geological diversity. The potential of iron sand spread out as beach sand deposits. This research conducted to map landforms, including south coast region and analyze the distribution of iron sand sediment. The study used DEMNAS image analysis, a 1: 20, 000 scale with Arc-GIS software. Variables analysis includes elevation, aspect, roughness, hill shade, river pattern, and hill roughness accompanied by a field survey. Resistivity survey on old beach deposits morphology (2 locations) and young beach deposits (2 locations) to obtain data on the potential of iron sand. Measurement using OYO Model 2, McOHM Resitivimeter, Schlumberger configuration, and geophysical modelling using Res-2Din software. The landform in Kebumen consists of 33 units as structural, denudational, dissolving, fluvial, and coastal landforms. The Coastal Sediment landscape consists of 3 units, in the form of young coastal sediment, old coastal sediment, and fluvio marine sediment. The potential of iron sand is founded in young coastal sediment (M5) is about 764, 77 Ha, and old coastal sediment (M4) about 590, 84 Ha. Mineral compositions are olivine, pyroxene, hornblende, biotite, and impurities as quartz, plagioclase, orthoclase, rutile and calcite minerals. Coastal sand sediment in the Old Sediment is found 30-60 m depth with overburden up to 4 m. The potential of beach sand about 406, 686, 300 m3 similar with 1, 037, 050, 065 tons, total Fe estimated about 629, 696, 799 tons.
