Since protection of foredunes should be accorded utmost importance, pedestrian areas should be constructed in a way not to cause further damage to the environment, e.g., elevated boardwalks at selected points.

Local building forms (huts) and materials (wood) should be used in several entertainment points and for the construction of boardwalks.
