This paper describes the process of coastal restoration by developing environmentally friendly coastal protection structure. The structure is light permeable breakwater, made of bamboo and tree brunches. The structure was tested in the coastal area of Timbulsloko village, Demak district, Central Java Province, Indonesia. Preliminary result indicated that the breakwater able to trap sediment. Sediment built up behind the structure, and mangroves were seedlings at the subsequence year. A well growing mangrove was observed. This light permeable breakwater is much cheaper compared to other types of breakwater, easy to construct, and easily adapted to local environmental conditions. It is recommended to further develop the permeable breakwater and expand its implementation for restoring mangrove as natural coastal protection.
