Australia beaches are similar to US beaches along the east coast. This is Coff’s Harbor and looks much like a typical US beach south of New Jersey. The white sand is fine and the beach shelf is wide enough to lay in the same spot all day. The self pic was made by setting the camera on 10 sec timer and running at olympic speeds to the fence post at the end.
Both shots are quite beautiful, AND you got your exercise. Amazing sunset against those interesting trees.
