For decreasing the spray flux by wave-breaking at the shoreline to the landward area, the optimal wind protection fence structure was discussed. For minimizing the salt-spray flux through the fence, the structure with two low circular or L-shaped cylinders in staggered grid arrangement was selected and wind tunnel experiments were conducted with different spacing for cross-stream and stream-wise direction. The salt spray amount settling at the fence and passing through the fence were measured. The spray volume getting through or blowing up the fence was quantified by colored water with dye. The water was sprayed with a sprayer and collected by gauzes setting at downstream points. For the subsidence volume at the bottom in downstream, a tray was put and the mass of the subsiding water was measured. Considering the loss by blowing upward of the fence, the appropriate arrangement was found as `the two rows of circular cylinders with staggered, 1D cross-stream spacing and 1D-2D stream-wise length, where D is the diameter of a circular cylinder'. This amount of the subsidence is about 90% and more than the value of previous-existed fence structure, 70%.
