    Huub: it’s like bailing water out of a boat with a hole in it; it’s exhausting and only buys time until you can fix the problem; in this case, build a breakwater.

    Hello, were a few days further and yes, the sand on the beach in La Herradura is washed away, I don’t understand this kind of work.

    Can someone give me more details ?

    Why are they piling up the sand onto the beach at La Herradura? It is covering rocks and looks like a platform of some sort. Many lorry deliveries of sand per day which will surely all be washed away?
