Macrobenthos communities of Buntal Beach and Tanjung Datu, Sarawak were described based on the sampling conducted on November and August 2018. The approaches were taken to determine the community structure among macrobenthos and the relationship between water parameters. Three replicates of samples were taken at each station from five stations in Buntal Beach while two replicates of samples from four stations were taken in Tanjung Datu. The distribution of macrobenthos were related to environmental parameters which using Pearson's correlation. The dominant group in Buntal Beach was polychaeta based on total species composition which indicated as 69% from total species followed by molluscs with 27% while in Tanjung Datu was polychaeta (84%) followed by molluscs (10%). From the analysis, it showed that temperature and salinity have been the important factors that influenced macrobenthos community of both studies areas.
