Tidal flood is one of the threats found in the coastal areas of Cirebon Regency, especially in Pangenan, Gebang and Losari Districts. The changing coastal conditions and the changing land use have worsened the tidal flood. The purpose of this research is to analyse the spatial pattern of land use change in the tidal flood area. This study uses spatial analysis and temporal and spatial metrics. Temporal, spatial analysis is used to see changes in land use in tidal flood areas in 2002, 2009, and 2019, while spatial metrics are used to see these patterns, especially aggregation and diversity. The results of processing show that changes in land use in 2002-2019 were dominated by ponds and irrigated rice fields. The largest land use area in the tidal flood area is in ponds, but the increase has continued to occur in residential and built-up land from 2002 to 2019. Overall, the spatial metric results show that land use fragmentation in the coastal zone of Cirebon Regency in the tidal flood area is increasing. However, the development of land use in the coastal district of Cirebon Regency is low due to tidal flood.
