In 2011, a large artificial sandbank in the shape of a peninsula was constructed off the coast of Ter Heijde and Kijkduin. Ocean currents, wind, and waves have been given free rein to spread the sand along the Delfland coast between Hoek van Holland and Scheveningen.

The Sand Motor is important as a driver for innovative coastal maintenance.
