The research aims to explore how location and motivation, two critical factors in tourism behavior, can affect the attractiveness and satisfaction of domestic tourists in Tembeling Springs, a natural and cultural destination in Nusa Penida, Bali. Quantitative methodology was used by conducting a survey of 200 domestic tourist respondents. The research results show that location influences tourists’ visiting decisions, with preferences for accessibility and adequate facilities. Motivation also plays an important role.
