Results indicated that total of 59.895 hectares mangrove covers have been identified in both islands, with 86.49% in Tioman Island (52.7625 hectares) and 13.51% in Tulai Island (7.1325 hectares). Mangrove species have been merged into 3 major classification groups based on the spectral overlapping; Mangrove A, Mangrove Band Mangrove C. In Tioman Island, Mangrove A covers 59.91 % _(31.613 hectares) of total mangrove in the island, and Mangrove Band Mangrove C with 13.64% (7.2 hectares) and 26.43% (13.95 hectares). In Tulai Island, only Mangrove A and Mangrove B was observed. Mangrove A occupies 85.48% (6.0975 hectares) and Mangrove B covers 14.51 % (1.035 hectares).
