Under the pretext of protecting the coast from erosion – a problem that often does not exist, new breakwaters are constantly being constructed or promoted along the coastline of Cyprus.

A large part of the coastal front of Cyprus has been filled or is planned to be filled with breakwaters, even in environmentally sensitive areas. In reality, however, breakwaters often aim to create sandy beaches, to attract a large number of bathers.

But often the price is high, causing irreparable damage to the coast, to serve the most common and saturated tourist product “sand-sun-sea”, for which there are already plenty of beaches on our island.
