The sea plays a very important role in shaping the coastal landscape. Waves such as the one shown in the picture hit the shore numerous times each day and as a result they wear away and break up the rocky coastline of the Maltese Islands. Most of the eroded pieces of rock are then transported and deposited somewhere else along the shore or sea bed. Despite their somewhat destructive nature in some places, waves are truly magnificent to watch!
