Erosional and Depositional landforms

Tombolos are extensions of the coastline

Spits are long narrow ridges of sand

Less resistant rocks which curve inwards are Bays

Headlands formed from more resisting rocks

Longshore currents deposit materials on the coast

Accumulation of materials over time form beaches

Deposition is when materials are deposited on the coast

Cuts the rock and forms a cave

Cliffs formed when rocky coasts get repeatedly washed by waves

Removal of materials from the coasts by high energy waves

Erosion

Shore platforms formed when waves erode the cliffs

Beaches formed when sediments deposit along the coast
