Erosion control and coastal stabilization are common problems in coastal engineering. A brief overview of some available alternative systems for shore stabilization and beach erosion control is presented. Special attention is paid to artificial reefs and geosystems. Geosystems (geotubes, geocontainers, etc.) have gained popularity in recent years because of their simplicity in placement, cost effectiveness, and environmental aspects. However, all these systems have some advantages and disadvantages, which have to be recognized before application.
