Slide presentation beaches and hurricanes: 1995 in the Eastern Caribbean Islands

Slide 52: Shore structures in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands

The development shown in this slide is now positioned in the active beach zone, and has had to be protected with a steel bulkhead.  Not only does the bulkhead impede access along the beach and mar the aesthetics of the area, but also the vertical nature of the structure will result in additional scour and erosion by the waves.
