A groyne is a wall made either of concrete or strong wooden posts and planks. It extends from the coastline to the level of low tide. It is designed to halt longshore drift. The groyne acts as a sand trap. Sand piles up on the side facing the direction from which longshore drift advances. Usually a series of groynes is built along a beach. Piers and breakwaters have a similar effect on longshore drift to groynes
