The capitol building at Ngerulmud is only 1km from the coast. In fact there's nothing in Ngerulmud except that white elephant building.

"South" Tarawa needs to be accepted for Kiribati. And what about Cotonou?

Otherwise loved it, great idea.

I get that you’re probably using the actual City name city limits as the determining factor as to if the city is “Coastal” or not but in reality the urban areas of a few different countries are also coastal and these cities are also generally considered coastal too regardless of where their city limits lay. The Urban Areas of Seoul, South Korea - Stockholm, Sweden - Amsterdam, Netherlands - Taipei, Taiwan - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Bangkok, Thailand - Porto Novo, Benin and Athens, Greece are all cities you either forgot to add or their urban areas still touch the coast and are considered coastal cities still.

Not sure if the entire urban areas of cities are included (e.g Incheon being considered as a part of Seoul). If "urban area" would be specified in the instructions of the quiz, I would agree with you.

However I wouldn't go as far as saying that the urban area of Amsterdam touches the sea as the coastal towns don't touch Amsterdam. But if we include entire metropolitan areas or agglomerations the list could perhaps be expanded even further.

Great quiz! My only feedback is that South Tarawa was not accepted, so please correct this.

Tarawa can perhaps be accepted as an extra answer for South Tarawa, but should not be the main answer.

Stockholm is still missing, otherwise, great quiz!
