    • It was beautiful. And interesting. It’s a long sweeping bay. At one end, there is vehicle access to the beach, at the other, it’s a short walk down some stairs from the carpark. The vehicle access end was soooo busy, with people actually driving their SUVs onto the sand, and setting up mini-camps – complete with car stereos blaring. At the other end, the beach was as the photos show it, virtually deserted. I hate what that says about people! But also appreciate being able to enjoy the beauty and my man’s company in peace.

      • I’m with you in preferring the quiet side of the beach. I live 10 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. There are quiet a few beaches, none of them quiet except in the off season. And not the expanse your gorgeous photos show.

      • I live near urban beaches that, like yours are always busy. But I guess I’m lucky that I’m not too far from a pile of really quiet places. Benefit of living on an island — there’s an awful lot of coastline!
