Ciamis Regency is a regency in West Java, Indonesia. Prior to the separation of part of this regency in 2012, it had an area of 2,556.75 km² and population of 1,528,306 (at the 2010 Census); the regency was until 2012 divided into 36 districts. Its capital is Ciamis. However, as from 25 October 2012, the existing regency has been split, with 10 districts comprising the southern portion being formed into a new Pangandaran Regency (with a 2010 Census population of 383,848), leaving 26 districts in the residual Ciamis Regency.

Tourist destinations[edit]

In 2011 Ciamis Regency was boosting the (new) tourist destinations with an idea of making a new Regency in the southern 10 districts of the regency, south of the '(virtual) isthmus' (please see the locator map) where there were already popular tourist destinations (e.g. Pangandaran Beach). The separate Pangandaran Regency was split off in 2012.

Up to end of May 2014 (5 months), Ciamis Regency are only visited by 156,423 domestic tourists and just 3 foreign tourists as spill off from Pangandaran Beach. The counting is a significant drop compared to when Pangandaran is still belong of Ciamis Regency, because Ciamis Regency until now has not yet affordable tourist site, mainly for foreign tourists.[1]

Six of these districts (Baregbeg, Lumbung, Mangunjaya, Purwadadi, Sindangkasih and Sukamantri) had been created between the previous Census of 2000 and the more recent Census of 2010.

the ten districts suffixed by "#" are those split off to form the new Pangandaran Regency.
