The concept of “property”, usually studied under private law, has suffered internal (the social function as an essential element of the institution) and external (the administrative limitations) changes. As a result of these changes, the concept of property should be studied under the public law´s approach and method. An issue of utmost importance to public law is that it be properly and adequately articulated by the administrative authorities in order to protect the citizens’ rights. This article addresses this issue throughout: (1) a study of the immovable property located close to the coastline, (2) the powers of the administrative agencies regarding these particular areas, and (3) the limits to these powers. Further, this article will analyze real and hypothetical cases, where an application of procedural and substantive law warranties are needed in order to protect the owner´s rights.
