Abstract: Redington Shores is located on the west coast of Florida on the barrier island, Sandy Key, in Pinellas County. A detached offshore breakwater, located to the west of Redington Shores, was constructed in 1986. The breakwater was designed by the US Army Engineer District, Jacksonville, to control beach erosion and reduce beach nourishment requirements. This paper presents the beach response at Redington Shores to this breakwater. Initial shoreline response described in Dean and Pope (1987) for the pre- and post-construction period, September 1984 to November 1986, is summarized. The subsequent shoreline changes monitored and documented by the Jacksonville District (US Army Corps of Engineers 1989) for the post-construction period, April 1986 to February 1988, and the post renourishment shoreline response data are analyzed and interpreted along with the regional wave climate.
