Mangrove forest plays a pivotal role in the land and sea ecosystem. The physical, economic, and ecological function of mangrove has been widely unknown, so establishing mangrove ecotourism can be the medium to educate society about the importance of mangroves. This study aimed to analyze the three developing mangrove ecotourism, namely Beejay Bakau Resort Probolinggo, Kampung Blekok Situbondo, and Pancer Cengkrong Trenggalek. The data were analyzed using Analysis Interactive by Miles and Huberman. The result showed that Beejay Bakau Resort ecotourism was professionally managed by the private sector using the concept of a combination of natural tourism (mangroves, beaches) and environmentally friendly artificial tourism (attractions). Meanwhile, Blekok Situbondo Ecotourism and Pancer Cengkrong Trenggalek ecotourism legally belong to the government managed by POKDARWIS and POKMASWAS, which use the nature conservation concept. Besides that, Pancer Cengkrong ecotourism has developed more slowly due to the lack of secondary actorsârole.
