Scientists at the Vietnam National Institute of Oceanography (VNIO) have concluded a two-year study on ‘breeding’ artificial beaches in coastal Nha Trang City for tourist activities.

The study, submitted this month to the Department of Science and Technology of Khanh Hoa Province in south-central Vietnam, looked at possible locations in Nha Trang where new, artificial beaches can be created, as well as preservation solutions for the city’s existing natural beaches.

According to Assoc. Prof. Dr. Bui Hong Long, a former VNIO president who led the study, the research was aided by Japanese experts with experience in the field.

Dr. Long’s study, which lasted between September 2014 and September 2016, found that the shore running from the northern part of Dong De to Hon Chong, and from Hon Chong to the outfall of the Cai River, were suitable for the formation of artificial beaches capable of accommodating the city’s growing tourist numbers.

The scientists suggested using readily available sand in the city or from neighboring areas to create the new beaches, while advising against construction that could potentially harm the environment.

The sand should be gradually ‘planted’ into the beach for a natural accretion process, Dr. Long explained.

The scientists also called for the protection of Nha Trang’s natural beaches against the threat of extreme erosion.
