Jomalig's Mangrove Sanctuary covers 182 hectares with about 16 species of mangrove. The sanctuary is also home to a wide variety of fauna including doves, crows, snakes, and small marine animals. During high tide, travelers can go around the sanctuary on a paddleboat, but they would first have to take a 20-minute walk on muddy terrain to reach the mangrove area. In the 1970s, the original mangroves were cut down and made into charcoal. Meanwhile, the area itself was converted into fishponds. Reforestation took place between 2002 to 2004, although the rehabilitation program is still ongoing.
