Abstract: Estero Ciego beach is located in the tourist area in Holguín province, northeastern coast of Cuba. At present, the beach suffers an erosion process, being observed the appearance of extensive rocky surfaces in the eastern half of the beach as well as a marked deficit of sand in the coast. The objective of this study is to define the engineering solutions required to improve the aesthetic and use conditions of the beach. As main action it is proposed the artificial nourishment of sand, since it constitutes a solution that creates the aesthetic conditions rapidly. As a complement to guarantee the beach stability for a longer period of time, it is also intended to reduce part of the rocky surface that presently exists on the coastline in the eastern half of the beach.
