It's #beachthursday & today's beach is from the place I like to call home, Melbourne. To be fair, Melbourne isn't known for its beaches. It is known for a lot of other really great qualities, but it does have some nice beaches where you can relax & enjoy a day in the sun on the city's doorstep.
It's #beachthursday time again! This week I return to the beautiful hidden pebble beach in Nerja, Andalucía, Spain. The tiny pebbles wrap around your toes as you walk to the shore or the cafe serving ice cold drinks in the hot Mediterranean sun. I love this beach, the only thing missing is sand.
It’s #beachthursday time again! This week I bring you Playa Del Salón in Nerja, Andalucía, Spain. With many of the hotels in Nerja facing onto this long sandy beach, you can be assured that on a summer’s day this beach will be packed. But once all the English tourists are lobster red, I’m sure you’ll find a spot.
Five hours inland from the Australian east coast is the town of Wagga Wagga, where I grew up. And on the Murrumbidgee River is a beach. Yep, a real beach. It’s nothing spectacular, but when the summer temperature soars well over 40˚C, having a place like this makes the summer infinitely more fun.
This week’s #FriFotos theme is: Oceans. When I was growing up, the nearest ocean was five hours away. I loved every second I got to spend on a beach and swimming in the crashing waves. But the thing I loved the most was the never relenting, salty wind blowing on my face. My niece loves the same feeling.
Melbourne is the place that I will return to one day, it’s home. The time that I have already lived in Melbourne, has given me so many great memories & is why I can’t wait to return. One of those moments was when I took my “boys” one evening to St. Kilda beach & did some random funny stuff that I love to do.
I was lucky enough to spend the day at SoHo Beach House, Miami. This members only club screams luxury & comfort. So when the time came to peel myself off the sunbed, finish eating the tequila infused pineapple & finally make it to the freakishly warm water, it made me understand why Miami impresses so many.
The Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia has some great beaches. Aireys Inlet is one of those little gems that most people will drive past. Hidden down a dirt track, behind a lagoon & sand bar, is a beach that you only have to share with locals. On a beautiful sunny day, you will never want to leave this spot.
Less than an hour away from London by train is Brighton. A popular weekend destination due to its many bars & nightclubs along the waterfront. Brighton Beach is a shingle beach, which is the nice way for saying it has no sand. The rocks wiggle under your feet until you reach the freezing Atlantic Ocean.
South Beach, Miami. You can claim your prize at the prize shop if you have never heard of it. There are a few places that spring to everyones mind at the thought of beaches. This would be one of them. Once a place of criminals, cubans & little old ladies. Now its THE place to be for the beautiful people.
