Interventions on natural heritage generate economic, social, environmental and cultural effects on the territory. The conventional model of occupation of the first kilometers of coastline for tourist uses has proved to be tremendously depredatory although “sun and beach” tourism, despite the permanent discourse on the exhaustion of the model, still retains a very high attraction for the demand. In this context it is worth mentioning the existence of the beach of l’Auir, in the municipality of Gandia, a “developable” beach although, for various reasons, not yet urbanized and that has recently become the subject of debate by the announcement of a competition of ideas on the potential models of use of this territorial space. In this paper we present some of the reflections derived from one of the ideas participating in the contest with the slogan LABHUIR.
