This reseach is focused on 4 points location snorkel using vulnerability theory approach with exposure parameters, the visitors number, density of Acanthaster planci, wave height, depth, pH, temperature, substrate type and tidal range. The result showed that exposure potential comes from various elements, i.e the natural elements and other elements such us the tourism activity. The exposure value of Menjangan island is 1.5 which is in low exposure level.
