Public use of waterfronts is under great pressure. Urban coastal developments seem to neglect the public, social and cultural importance of urban life at these seafronts. These developments show a tendency to focus on strategies that exclude local people and migration movements from the shores and emphasizes on touristic visitors as a more interesting source of revenues. That may lead to conflicts, estrangements, loss of heritage and loss of more informal cultural and economic uses of public coastal space.
