    Spain spanish
    I would say: "la línea de costa retrocede cada año"

    "To recede" means "retirarse", but in spanish we use it to mention the tide when it goes bach everyday. But if you mean the shoreline going back because of the climate change, for example, we say "retroceder" instead of "retirarse".
    I hope I've explained myself correctly...
