dc.description.abstract Studies were undertaken at Kolachel on the western side of the Peninsular tip from April 1995 to April 1996, for a period of one year. Monthly measurements were made on littoral environment observations (LEO) and beach level variations. Longshore sediment transport rates were estimated based on the observed data. Study shows that the wave activity was high throughout the year at Kolachel. The annual gross longshore sediment trasnport rate was higher 0.9 x 10 sup(6) m sup(3)/year and the annual net transport rate was 0.3 x 10 sup(6) m sup(3)/year towards west. The beach level was low in September and high in April and the beach near Kolachel is stable over the annual cycle.
