Breakwaters are used around the globe as a mean of protection against beach erosion by reducing the height of incoming waves into smaller transmitted waves. In addition, breakwaters can efficiently be used to preserve tranquillity inside the harbour basin, to decrease the deposition of sediments that can lead to water pollution at the harbour entrances, and to be a sanctuary for marine habitats. The purpose of this study is to discuss the application of the innovative submerged breakwater globally and in Malaysia. In addition, the comparison between submerged and emerged breakwater are briefly explained to understand the distinction between these two structures. The future experiment of the newly developed breakwater in Malaysia known as WABCORE is also included in this paper where the experimental setup and expected results are discussed.
