I love my job! Travelling to see clients means that sometimes I am near the beach, and that was the case yesterday. I had lunch at the beach and then went for a walk on the beach before meeting with my clients. On a beautiful Adelaide day Christies Beach was a picture.
I don’t spend days on the beach but I love walking on them when I get a chance. We are blessed with some of the best beaches in the world in Australia – and that’s official! Cable Beach in Broome, Surfers Paradise beach, 75 mile beach on Fraser island and even Vivonne Bay on Kangaroo Island have made the top beaches worldwide lists from time to time. Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsunday Islands is almost always on the Top 10 beaches worldwide every year. And there are dozen more.
Worldwide many travellers seek out beaches for all sorts of reasons – tropical lagoon beaches on the Cook Islands and the Maldives for honeymoons, safe wide sandy beaches for family holidays and beaches where the surf crashes in for those who ride the waves. Many are great beaches – but don’t be surprised if the white sandy beaches you are used to Australia are not to be found in the places you might expect them. Fiji’s sands are frequently coarse yellow sand and even grey volcanic sand. European beaches are typically stony or rocky and you will need shoes to traverse the “beach” into the water.
