The spatio-temporal texture characteristics are key parameters for understanding the dynamics of the sedimentary environment. This study was conducted to determine the sediment characteristics in swash zone of Lhoong Beach, Aceh Besar Regency. The analysis emphasizes the seasonal variation of sediment mean grain size (MGS) based on vertical stratification. Sediment samples were taken during November 2018, January 2019 and March 2019, from 3 stations. Samples from station 3 had the coarsest grain characteristics, where the highest MGS value at station 3 was recorded in the mid-layer (5-10 cm) in November. The grain size was found to vary with changing seasons and the depth of the sediment layer. Based on depth stratification, the highest standard deviation was obtained by the mid-layer (5-10 cm); while by period, the highest standard deviation of the MGS value was generated during November.
