Recreational beaches depend on wide space and good water quality as well as amenities in order for them to be popular with the public. When such beaches lose popularity, it is often related to the loss of beach space, erosion or degradation of the surrounding environment. In the case of erosion or loss of beach space, beach nourishment is now accepted as the best solution. It provides the sand and profile that is required to reduce wave energy but also provides economic returns as additional area for social and economic activities are created. This paper discusses the conceptual design of beach nourishment for erosion protection of sandy beaches and the impacts and issues arising from the implementation of beach nourishment projects on holiday beaches. The cases featured in the discussions and drawn from the experiences and records of the Department of Irrigation and Drainage Malaysia, Coastal Engineering Division in undertaking coastal protection work throughout the country.
