Ocean or marine energy has immense renewable energy capability, able to provide more than double the world's current electricity consumption. Ocean energy is considered a non-polluting, renewable source of energy. The research was conducted in the waters of South Malang, East Java Province. This research utilizes wave modeling data that has been picture confirmed and processed within one year, in 2022. This procedure will yield the monthly height, period, and direction of wave arrival. The data used to create a map of the location of wave energy in South Malang comes from previously created wave energy maps. This location map is the result of an overlay of multiple prior maps in order to create a site that can be developed for the usage of wave energy. According to the results, the southern locations of Donomulyo, Bantur, and Sumbermanjing have the most potential for using wave energy for buoy planting. Point 29 is the closest point following point 30 to point 34. However, point 29 is the area covered by the turtle migratory route. Point 34 is the farthest away from the other two places if the distance from the coastline to the potential point is calculated perpendicularly. Despite its distance from the coast, this site experiences the least disturbance when compared to others.
