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.
