The beach profile study along the Universiti Malaysia Sabah beach was conducted within a period of 5 months. Six stations were identified for this study, where each station were divided to high tide (HT), mid tide (MT) and low tide (LT). The aim of this study are to identify the beach profile, sediment size characteristics and physical processes that affected the changes along the beach. In this study, the mean sediment size have been classified in between the medium sand and fine sand values with the sorting value between moderately sorted and poorly sorted that showed the sorting of the sediments size were not well sorted at each station. Wave action, tidal cycles, monsoon changes and human activities are the factors that influence changes in the beach profile. Skewness and kurtosis values showed good regression, due to the changes in the beach profile in each station. Activities such as sand replenishment and land clearance for construction project that caused by human had occurred at the study sites.
