Tourism is a sector that gets significant attention because it can restore the economy quickly, especially the economy of the local community. Tourism diversity can support the economy of Indonesia. Central Java is one of the provinces that has tourism diversity. Tourism conditions in Central Java are not homogeneous; that will be difficult to monitor and make plans of tourism in that area. Grouping of regencies and municipalities in Central Java based on the similarity of the characteristics of tourism conditions, so the process of monitoring and planning will be done by regency and municipality groups were formed. The grouping of regencies/ municipalities in Central Java used the K-Means cluster method. In this Research, data of numbers of the tourist attraction; tourist village; national tourists; foreign tourists; human resources; star hotel; non-star hotel; and income of tourism was used to determine the group of tourism areas in Central Java. The result of this research shows that there were three (3) clusters of tourism areas in the Province of Central Java, i.e., low competitiveness, middle competitiveness, and high competitiveness tourism areas. In conclusion, there are many regencies or municipalities that have the potential for the government to develop the tourism sector adapted to the group of tourism areas that has an advantage or potential for development.
