This research investigates the impact of Covid-19 on marine ecotourism in Tegal City. As is known Covid 19 has been established by WHO as a global pandemic. Thus, the pandemic has penetrated various parts of the world, including Indonesia. In response to the prevention of the pandemic, in the city of Tegal, Central Java, Indonesia, a lockdown was carried out. With the lockdown, Tegal City Government closed local tourism spots, including marine ecotourism in Tegal city, including Alam Indah Beach, Muarareja Indah Beach, Batam Sari Beach and Kodok Beach. This research was conducted online in connection with the existence of lockdown regulations and work from home policies. The findings obtained indicate that Covid 19 has a significant effect on marine ecotourism in the city of Tegal. Lockdowns in these places paralyze the local tourism industry's economy.
Key words: Covid 19 / lockdown / marine ecotourism / new normal
