Based on information from Wonocoyo Village Pokmaswas who worked at the location, the landing area and nesting of sea turtles tends to be on the west side of the coast. This study aims to provide a scientific explanation of these conditions by using remote sensing data of time series Sentinel Image 2a, beach sand texture data, beach profiles, sea turtle landing location, supratidal area prediction using GIS analysis and eggs data. The results shows that the preference of the landing area and the nesting of sea turtles on the west side of Taman Kili-Kili Beach is related to the dynamics of the coastal conditions especially the coastline and supratidal area.
