I know a lot of physics (a whole lot) but I’d want to look at the property or at least some good photos to opine. I’ve done some marine and coastal work on the side. “Breakwaters“ commonly result in a scalloped pattern on a beach with sand building up on one side and being depleted on the other. This sounds like a concrete boat ramp or walkway. Certainly could have focused some wave energy and changed the location of the break a little. In the US something like this would probably go to litigation, and then you would get expert reports from the parties. Also in the US you wouldn’t get permitting for this except maybe Florida.
