They may have been placed there to help with rebuilding of the sand dunes. As the wind blows the sand around the anchor, it causes the dunes to rise. Higher dunes decrease the chances of major flooding during storm/hurricanes...Then again, I could be wrong.

In TX, people will donate or dump their dried up xmas trees on the dunes that were damaged by previous storms/hurricanes.

Re: Anchor Graveyard Tavira Island, Portugal

Anchor Graveyard (Portugal) - Among the dunes of Tavira island, in Portugal, there’s an impressive called the Cemitério das Âncoras (The Anchor Graveyard). It was built in remembrence of the glorious tradition of tuna fishing with large nets ("armações de atum") fixed with these anchors, a fishing technique already invented by the Phoenicians. Tavira used to be a place devoted to the tuna fishing. They built up this anchor graveyard to remember those who had to quit their occupation when the big fish abandoned the coasts.
