Indonesia has many small islands. The potential of the small island as a regional tourist destination is excellent. Necessary resources such as coral reefs, seagrass and beautiful beaches are one of the tourist destinations. This study aims to determine the role of local communities in developing regional tourism potential. This research was conducted on one of the small islands in the Spermonde island cluster, South Sulawesi named Barrang Caddi Island. The methods used are site surveys, interviews and focus group discussions. The results obtained are that the excellent environment and coastal resources' strength are beautiful for tourist destinations. Infrastructure is the main supporting facility for tourist visits. The community plays an important role in advancing its area as a tourist destination. Strengthening institutions in the village and maintaining a good culture are good drivers in marine tourism development.
