Nypa fruticans, commonly known as the nipa palm or mangrove palm, is a species of palm tree that grows in the wild in tropical regions. The nipa palm is notable for its distinctive, umbrella-like leaves, and its fruit, which is used to make wine and vinegar.

The Mangrove Palm is found in tropical rainforests, swamps, and wetlands. It typically grows to a height of 20-30 meters (66-98 feet). The best time to see the Mangrove Palm in the wild is during the wet season, when the trees are fully leafed out.
