During a small stroll along the Belgian coast to Knokke on of the most fashionable city at the Belgium coast.

Breakwater as subject

Why breakwaters:
This can be done as a reduction of wave height is sufficient and it is not necessary to be taken. All waves away because the construction is lower, much less material is required and the structure is also much more economical.
Additionally, there are the rubble-and-caisson breakwater combined: the lower part of the breakwater is then carried out with heavy stones, where on top of a caisson is placed. This can be done to save (cheap collapsed stone), yet there is a load is required.

Knokke-Heist is a municipality in the province of West Flanders and one of the most famous seaside resort on the Belgian coast. The sea forms the northern border and to the east lies the Provincial Nature Zwin as a buffer to the coast of Zeeland (Netherlands). On the south side of Knokke-Heist is Damme and west lies the port of Zeebrugge. The town has about 34,000 inhabitants.
