The salinisation issue of Croatian coastal karst aquifers has been the interest of researchers for more than half a century. At the end of the 20th century due to the urbanisation and the growth of tourism, which have caused a higher demand of potable water, the issue has increased significantly. The only solution is over-exploitation of springs. The paper explains the dynamics of mixing salt and fresh water in karstic underground, i.e. coastal and submarine springs, and through selected examples shows given possibilities to explore rehabilitation interventions. The occurrence and development of coastal resources and fresh water springs are mostly the result of sea level fluctuations caused by the climate change during the evolution from late pleistocene to holocene geologic timescale.
