At the northern end of Town Beach, thousands of tons of pebbles were imported, as part of the recently completed coastal protection scheme, and placed on top of the pebbles originally there. The beach was built up by some three metres to be level with the Cart Road and to extend 20 to 30 metres out to sea. It seems to be very effective in protecting the Marine Parade and the buildings along it.
At the Cobb end, the beach was also enhanced, this time with sand imported from France. The beach no longer gets covered at high tide and provides an extensive beach area for both young and old. There are kiosks, takeaways, cafes, restaurants and public houses bordering this section of the beach.
