The mangrove forest is one of the natural resources of the coastal area that serves to control the increase of boundary between groundwater level and seawater level inland (intrusion), to be a buffer zone, and to protect the shoreline so as to avoid erosion or abrasion. The research aimed to find out the composition and types of mangrove forest vegetation in the area of Serukam River estuary, Bengkayang Regency This research was conducted from June to September 2015 . The location was determined using a purposive random sampling
method. There were three sampling locations with three  transects in the mangrove forest of Serukam River estuary.
