The results of the multiple linear regression analysis obtained the formula Y = -1.985+0.130X1+0.515X2+0.171X3+0.141X4. Based on the simultaneous hypothesis testing, the four independent variables have a significant effect on the decision to visit tourists to Tanjung Bias Beach. Partially, word of mouth (X2) has a positive and significant effect on the decision to visit tourists; this can be seen from the t-count value of 5.816, greater than the t-table value of 1.995. Social media promotion (X1), Attraction (X3) and Facilities (X4) have no significant effect on tourist visits, and show that the result of the multiple linear determination coefficient (R2) is 0.648, or 65%.
