It is important to know that the beaches, besides being a space of use, also play an environmental role: they act by dissipating the incident energy and protect the coast against the erosive action of the sea and in high energy situations, such as meteorological tides. For example, there is a rise in mean sea level at the local level that creates disruption to coastal cities.

This information was collected by conducting interviews, applying questionnaires, consulting scientific articles and cartographic material about the city of Vila Velha as well as field visits to the city's beaches.
