Indonesia is a country located at the meeting of three tectonic plates. This condition makes Indonesia a disaster-prone region, especially caused by the movement of tectonic plates, one of which is the tsunami. Several tsunami occurs were recorded in Indonesia. Tsunami occur on a large scale and causes losses, both environmental damage and fatalities. Therefore, evacuation planning is needed to minimize the number of fatalities when a tsunami occurs. This study aims to find out the potential threat of tsunami hazard in Ciletuh Bay and analyze evacuation planning in the region. The method used in this research is the spatial modeling method which is divided into tsunami inundation modeling, population distribution, and estimated evacuation travel time. The result of this study is that potential tsunami hazard in Ciwaru Village id found in two hamlets with an area of 104.63 Ha. A total of 590 exposed residents can evacuate within 0 - 15 minutes. The selection of evacuation routes with the fastest travel time is needed so that residents can reach the evacuation collection point before the tsunami arrives. The availability of road access in the hamlet makes it easier for residents in tsunami-exposed areas to reach evacuation gathering points.
