Sea defences - old and new
Sea defences - old and new
The sea wall (at left) protects the dunes beyond from erosion by wave action. The nearshore reefs seen at right protect the beach. Altogether nine nearshore reefs were built for the protection of this section of coastline. Extending from North Gap to Sea Palling further in the southeast, four are surface-piercing breakwaters and the other five serve as submerged breakwaters at high tide. Sand builds up on the landward side of these reefs, creating a number of bays. See also > LinkExternal link
