The different characteristics of subtrate might give influence on species composition, abundance and diversity of seaweed. Kondang Merak and Drini Beach are two beaches in Java Island which have different subtrate characteristic. The aim of this study is to investigate seaweed composition, abundance and diversity in Drini Beach and Kondang Merak Beach. Survey method and quadrant transect sampling technique were applied in this study. The result showed that 13 species of seaweed were found at Drini Beach and 18 species of seaweed were found in Kondang Merak Beach. The composition of the seaweed at Drini Beach and Kondang Merak Beach were dominated by Rhodophyta (69% and 56%). Enteromorpha flexuosa was the most abundant seaweed at Drini Beach, while at Kondang Merak Beach was dominated by Chaetomorpha crassa. The seaweed diversity index of Kondang Merak Beach (2,08) was higher than Drini Beach (1,27). Physical and chemical parameters were categorized as the optimal for the growth of the seaweed.
