The potential of an ecotourism location can be analyzed based on evaluating the success of the restoration program using several indicators, one of which is macroinvertebrates diversity. This research was conducted in Bajulmati Beach, Clungup Mangrove Conservation (CMC) Beach, and Kondang Iwak Beach with 3 different lengths of restoration (except Kondang Iwak as a reference site). The measured data include physicochemical parameter, mangrove vegetation profiles, and macroinvertebrate profiles. Furthermore, it is used as a basis for the formulation of a restoration recommendation strategy. The results of the study showed that the presentation of land cover in Bajulmati and Kondang Iwak were classified as rare (<5%), while CMC was classified as tight (between 5 - 25%). Macroinvertebrates were found in a total of 20 species of gastropods and 9 species of crabs. It shows that the macroinvertebrates had a special tendencies in certain habitats.
