Since has been established by communal forest farmers association in 2010, the visitor arrivals growing up until 2016. However, the performance tends to down in 2017. Therefore, the managing of ecotourism in Kalibiru needs to evaluate the competitiveness of attraction in the destination. SWOT and QSPM analysis were used to make the decisions and suggest strategies planning in ecotourism sector. The results find that the implementation of sustainable development in Kalibiru was frugal. Thus, to improve competitiveness, the manager should be able to use the output of SWOT and QSPM approach as a tool for managing destination and promoting sustainable development. Determining the strategies should not be in contradiction to regulation in Kulon Progo. The choice of decision must consider the priority of duration, with specialization in the short, medium, or long term. By using these strategies, the Kalibiru developers can pay attention to the stability of the triple bottom line strategy. Thereafter, they are able to maintain the competitiveness and to achieve target number of visitors at the Kalibiru destination.
