As coastal populations expand, demands for recreational opportunities on beaches and coastal dunes grow correspondingly.

This restricts the amount of sand freely available to the beach system/buffer zone between land and sea. Using dunes for recreational purposes such as horse and bike riding have also impacted upon the dune vegetation and.
