Instant Beach Erosion

IMGP6095 The combination of big swell and king tides, that correspond with the full moons in spring, has literally eroded scarps over two meters high along the beach in several places at Venus Bay, but beaches are dynamic places and seasonal changes are normal.

The bigger erosion risk for the beach are blowouts, caused by wind and clearing of vegetation in the dunes behind the beach.
