Dunes are restored and heather roses dug up. Seaweed is placed closer to the foot of the dunes. This is to ensure that the beach remains clear, but above all it provides conditions for the natural vegetation to re-establish itself. This is good for biodiversity. As the vegetation binds the sand, the effects of coastal erosion is monitored.

Domsten is an old fishing village north of Helsingborg. It is a distinct coastal community with its own marina and several streets that provide views over Öresund. There are several preserved half-timbered houses, especially in the northern part of the town. About 600 inhabitants.

Grå läge

The same methods are tested here as described in Domsten, ie removing invasive species and restoring sand dunes.

As most villages along the coast, Grå läge is an old fishing village. Fishing decreased in the 19th century and the town stagnated. In the 1930s, summer houses were built, of which some were later converted into year-round housing, and others demolished to make way for new houses. Today, there are about 20 households.
Grå läge is just north of Domsten and adjacent to the municipality of Höganäs.


Fortuna is Helsingborg's southernmost beach with buildings just a few meters from the shoreline. A combination of different methods close to nature will be tested. A large amount of sea sand will be laid out on the beach and in the water. It will be studied how this can be done in the most fruitful way to achieve coastal protection while the species-rich eel meadows at a depth of a few meters - are untouched.

Fortuna is on the border between the municipalities of Helsingborg and Landskrona.
