Western Australian Beaches – Burns Beach

Western Australian Beaches – Burns Beach

I’m lucky that I live close to some of the most stunning beaches in the world.

Western Australia has over 20,000 kms of coastline and the stunning Western Australian beaches provide us locals and the visitors to our state with the opportunity to swim, surf, snorkel, fish, sail, canoe, kayak, surfski, parasail, paraglide and picnic to our hearts content.

We can play beach cricket and beach volleyball, fossick in rock pools, make sandcastles, swim with dolphins and whales and sip wine as we watch some of the most incredible sunsets you’ll find anywhere.

Unfortunately when you live so close to this natural beauty you tend to forget what’s on your doorstep. Over the next few weeks I thought I’d spend a little time reminding the locals what they have and showing the rest of you in other parts of the world exactly what you’re missing.

I’m starting in the northern suburbs of Perth with a visit to Burns beach.

  2. Spectacular photos Pam. I have to agree that WA does have some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. I love the photo of the thongs in the sand – exceptional!

    • Thanks Kathy – I was just sitting on the sand waiting for the sunset and playing around with the camera when I took the photo of my thongs. When I saw the result I was really pleased because I didn’t aim for the effect I got. Sometimes the most random shots just work :-)

  3. Thanks Kathy, you’ve just inspired me to take a trip to Burns Beach. I grew up in Mullaloo and Burns Beach at the time was little holiday enclave with a beachfront caravan park. These days of course it’s become part of the suburban sprawl but the beach is still as beautiful as ever.

    • Hi Nina – yes, the beach is as beautiful as ever and the caravan park is still there! Glad I could bring back some memories :-)
