The existence of a beach is a primary factor for the development of the adjacent urban areas. The present paper deals with the restoration project of Pedregalejo Beach (Malaga-Spain) and the experience obtained after its construction. Studies related with the design of the maritime works and also with the monitoring of the evolution were carried out at the harbour laboratory of the CEDEX (Madrid). Two years after the completion of the works a movable bed model was built for testing the stability of the new beaches and for discussing the validity of these kind of models in application to the pocket-beaches type.
