The ecosystem suitability index for mangrove tourism in Village Pasir Mempawah Hilir Mempawah District is classified into very suitable (SS) and conditional (SB) categories for ecotourism development. This shows that the mangrove area in the Village Pasir Mempawah Hilir Mempawah District is suitable to serve as a tourist area. An alternative strategy of ecotourism management of mangrove priority in the coastal area of Pasir Village, Mempawah Hilir, Mempawah District, is to increase the effort of mangrove planting on the beach (replanting) in ecotourism development area. Thus, all areas in the location meet the criteria appropriate for mangrove ecotourism areas based on ecological parameters.
