Each one is ecologically unique and inhabits some specific floral components. Present paper reports occurrence of different plant species in the habitat like sandy beach, sand dune, encroached mangrove land, areas along the mangroves and mangrove swamps. Mangrove species are well documented and therefore excluded. There are 33 trees, 118 herbs, shrubs, climbers and 12 species with restricted distribution on the coast of Maharashtra.
