Jetties

A jetty is a long, narrow structure that protects a coastline from the currents and tides. Jetties are usually made of wood, earth, stone, or concrete. They stretch from the shore into the water. Currents and tides of an oceancan gradually wash away a beach or other features along the coastline. This is called erosion.
