Abstract: The undistorted physical model is described which allowed the measurement of the wave induced velocity field along the main breakwater, and also in Somorrostro Beach (Barcelona). The current pattern could be defined along the outer side of the main breakwater, as well as in Somorrostro beach area. Regarding the breakwater, the most remarkable fact is the formation of an incident-relfected wave interaction regime, with localized points of direction change of the current.
