Therefore, the village government, in this case the village head and his staff, is collaborating with the Liman beach manager and also the provincial government intends to establish a Village-Owned Enterprise (Bumdes) and also a Tourism Awareness Group (Pokdarwis) so that the community is more involved in activities and training in the field of tourism. tourism to improve the human resources of the local community in the tourist village of Uitiuhtuan. The impact of developing a tourist village for local communities has not yet been felt by the community because of the lack of human resources, therefore village officials hope that the establishment of village-owned enterprises (Bumdes) and tourism awareness groups (pokdarwis) can increase the role of local communities and indirectly can realize community-based tourism with symbols of and for the community.
