In 2009 – 2014, the average growth rate of foreign tourist arrivals was 8.62% per year, higher than the world average growth of 3.47% per year. This condition indicates the strong endurance of Indonesian tourism.

Central Java as one of the tourist destinations in Indonesia has a significant contribution to the visit of tourists both domestic and overseas. The performance of tourism development in Central Java shows an upward trend from year to year. Potential tourism such as Karimunjawa Islands consisting of 27 islands with 3 tribes (Java, Bugis and Madura) is on its uniqueness and has become a potential unique tourist attraction compared to other tourist areas.

Karimunjawa islands are a low land coastal area overgrown by mangrove forest which spread towards the East and West and generally covered by white sand beaches and very gentle jutting into the middle of the sea. Fringing reefs surround the islands and cause the shore to be shielded from the waves. Thus, the beaches in Karimunjawa Islands do not have the form of a steep beach. The total area of the Karimunjawa Islands National Tourism Strategic Area is ± 152,506 Ha, divided into the land area ± 4,644 Ha (3%) and the water area ± 147,862 Ha (97%). 

Nationally, according to the Government Regulation No. 50/2011 on National Tourism Development Master Plan (RIPPARNAS), KSPN Karimunjawa and its surrounding is one of 88 KSPNs. The position of KSPN Karimunjawa and Surrounding is within the territory of the National Tourism Destination (DPN) of Karimunjawa – Semarang and its surroundings which are interconnected with 3 National Tourism Development Zones (KPPN) namely: KPPN Semarang City and Surrounding;

KPPN Gedongsongo-Rawapening and Surroundings; KPPN Demak – Kudus and Surroundings. The strategic position of KSPN Karimunjawa and its surrounding can be seen from its location near the Java Sea which is one of ports for cruise and yachts between the western and eastern regions of Indonesia and supported by its proximity to the air gate with Achmad Yani International Airport in Semarang giving the possibility of development as one of the marine tourist destinations in the Java region.

In the national scale, the government has set the area of Karimunjawa Islands and its surrounding areas as a National Tourism Strategic Area (Kawasan Strategis Pariwisata Nasional/KSPN). In spatial, KSPN Karimunjawa and its surroundings can be structured into 2 zones, namely core zone and supporting zone.
