Travel theme: Beaches

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is Beaches. Click here to see the other entries.

Well, I’ve certainly visited a few beaches in my life. Here are some of my favourites:

I couldn’t write a post about beaches without including a photo of the local beach where I grew up in Thornton-Cleveleys, Lancashire.

Port Eynon on the incredibly beautiful Gower in South Wales.

Xi Beach

I took this photo on Kefalonia. It wasn’t the best beach on the island, but I loved the colours of the parasols against the red sand.

Myrtos Beach

The famous Myrtos Beach, subject of many a Greek postcard.

White Rocks

The dramatic White Rocks, also in Kefalonia. Sadly, the waves were washing the sand away right before our eyes. Unless they’ve imported some more since I took this photo about six years ago, this beach has probably disappeared by now.

And finally, sunset over Whitesands in West Wales.
