Life is a beach - Mosaic Monday

Summer is here and in Western Australia "life is a beach".....

The beach is part of Western Australia's way of life - kilometres of white sandy beaches, sparkling clear blue water, coral reefs, aquatic playgrounds, and the sun setting over the Indian Ocean in a brilliant array of colours.

Stretching from Broom's Cable Beach in the north, to Lucky Bay near Esperance in the south east, a trip to Western Australia would not be complete without a visit to one of its beaches. With some many to choose from, please read below my mosaic for a selection of some of the best.

Cable Beach, Broome - Established around the pearling industry, the tropical seaside town of Broome is the gateway to the Kimberleys. On Cable Beach's 22 kilometre stretch of prisitne white sand, you can escape the southern winter by relaxing on the beach, rejunivate in the warm ocean water, and enjoy a sunset camel ride.

Underwater Wonderland at Ningaloo Reef - Coral Bay and Exmouth -  Ningaloo Reef is one of the world's largest fringing coral reefs and a prime conservation sanctuary stretching 260 kilometres along North West Cape. You can snorkel over the reef only a few metres from shore, or take a dive tour and swim with the Whale Shark - Ningaloo leads the way in Whale Shark eco-tourism.

Monkey Mia, Shark Bay - Dolphin Experience - Thousands of visitors come to see the bottle nose dolphins which visit the beach at Money Mia, located in the World Heritage listed Peron Peninsular.

The Capes - surfing the South West - Enjoying a Mediterranean climate, the Cape to Cape region between Cape Naturalist and Cape Leeuwin is a playground for holiday makers during summer, and surfers all year round, as well as being an internationally acclaimed wine growing region.

South Coast - where the forest meets the sea - When summer hits the northern half of Western Australia, it is time to escape to a milder climate and the beautiful pristine beaches of the South Coast.  From Mandalay Beach west of Walpole, through Denmark to Albany, the southern coastline is a mixture of magnificent coastal scenery, rugged headlands, rock pools and secluded beaches, as well us spectacular Karri and Tingle forests and an international biodiversity hotspot.

Esperance - Australia's whitest beach - The combination of dazzling white squeaky clean sand and cold sparkling aqua blue water under a canopy of brilliant blue sky is a feast for the senses. Lucky Bay in the Cape Le Grand National Park near Esperance was judged in 2006 by a national committee of scientific experts to be the whitest beach in Australia. It is a paradise for beach lovers with kilometres of pristine beaches, spectacular coastal scenery, national parks and an aquatic paradise amongst the island of the Recherche Archipelago.
