AbstractGolden Beach in Taiwan is a sandy beach attracting many beachgoers because of its wide sandy beach and beautiful sunset. In recent years, this beach has been eroded. The cause of the beach erosion is considered to be due to the wave-sheltering effect of the Anping Harbor breakwaters constructed 4 km north of the beach. Now the restoration of sandy beach is underway by the construction of groins as well as beach nourishment using sand procured from the downcoast deposition area. This study aims to investigate the cause of the beach erosion of this beach to work out the effective measures against beach erosion.
