Abstract


Enggano Island has the potential to be developed into an ecotourism destination area, especially marine ecotourism. The ecosystems found in Enggano Island are coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass beds. This study aimed to analyze the suitability of marine ecotourism of Enggano Island for marine ecotourism activities, namely diving and snorkeling. The primary data collection was done by sampling, direct observations in the field. The secondary data were collected by exploring various references and relevant institutions. The research results showed that Enggano Island had three categories for marine ecotourism suitability of diving categories, namely suitable (S1), quite suitable (S2) and not suitable (N), while the marine ecotourism of snorkeling  categories had only two categories: suitable (S1) and quite suitable (S2).
