The Samota KSPD crosses three districts, namely Sumbawa, Dompu and Bima districts. This area has advantages that harmonize marine, land and volcanic potential. Including the diversity of flora and fauna as well as culture. There are 9 Tourism Villages within the Samota KSPD, including the Labuhan Jambu Tourism Village which is developing quite rapidly compared to other villages. Labuhan Jambu Tourism Village is increasingly known to foreign countries because it is the entrance to the Whale Shark attraction in the waters of Saleh Bay. Although the Whale Shark attraction has become an icon of Labuhan Jambu, this attraction is only available from April to November. Therefore, to attract tourists throughout the year, the Labuhan Jambu Tourism Village must have supporting tourist attractions. Based on the conditions described, then a study on the identification of community-based tourist objects and attractions is very important to do, to maintain the existence of Labuhan Jambu as a tourist village. Community-based tourism will have an impact on the socio-economic conditions of the community and region, as well as improvement of destination and regional facilities and infrastructure. This study uses a qualitative approach with a case study strategy. The research was conducted in October 2020 in the Labuhan Jambu Tourism Village, Tarano District, Sumbawa Regency, West Nusa Tenggara.
