a Steilküste is a coast region, at which from the sea no gradual transition takes place to the mainland, but the sea suddenly on the steeply rising mainland meets. The height of the mainland lies clearly over the sea level.

Due to erosion and due to the ground condition a sand beach can be formed before the Steilküste. If this is to be used routistic, he must be made accessible by stairs.
