“Kate’s Top 5” #3 – It’ll warm your heart

It’s winter here and the cold {and being sick for the last 3 weeks} has got me digging deeeep into the memory banks for warmer thoughts. So I have been thinking … Beaches !!

Here is a list of my own Top 5 Beaches { … that I have actually visited šŸ˜‰ }

#1 – Far and away my favourite – Cottesloe Beach, WA.
Beautiful, hey? šŸ™‚ This isn’t my pic. All of mine are buried deep in an old external HD which I don’t have nearby right now …
Having lived in Qld almost my whole life I thought we had the corner on beaches. But hubby took me to his home state a decade ago and I fell in LOVE with the majestic Indian Ocean and her surrounding white-sanded beaches! We went to many, many beaches over there and all of them are spectacular! It’s been too long since we’ve been back, might have to plan something there for next year šŸ™‚
If you’ve never been, you should put it on your bucket list now!

#2 – Coolangatta Beach, The Gold Coast, Qld
Beach Coolangatta 1IMG_3876I like most of the Gold Coast beaches, but Coolangatta is my favourite. Despite nearly drowning there 19 years ago! The sand is fine and crunchy and sounds musical when you walk on it. I’ve had a ball each time I’ve been there šŸ™‚ The first pic was taken almost exactly a year ago and is looking back towards the Surfers Paradise from Coolangatta. The next one was 5 mins later looking straight out. So pretty!

#3 – 4 Mile Beach, Port Douglas Qld.
Gorgeous! Been here quite a few times and it’s always pristine šŸ™‚

#4 – Yejele Beach, Mare, New Caledonia.
One of our stops on our cruise last year was Yejele Beach on Mare, and it was just gorgeous! White sand, turquoise ocean, and blazing sun! Loved it there šŸ™‚

#5 – Saunders Beach, Qld. Just up the road šŸ˜‰
Beach SaundersThis beach is 15 minutes up the road and I often walk here with a friend. It’s gorgeous!

Honourable mention – Kuta Beach!
I know, I know! Kuta isn’t the prettiest beach, sometimes I’ve heard it can be downright grubby! It was lovely when we were there tho, so I can’t speak to that.
I included it as an honourable mention because I bungee’d here and the view is gorgeous!!! šŸ˜€

Do all of those gorgeous beach piccys warm you up?
Have a great week!

  1. Yeah! With you on the beach at Port Douglas! It’s a favourite ‘visit’ beach as opposed to a ‘home’ beach. One of my favourites is Boambee Beach at Coffs Harbour. Kilometres of big, white empty beach, surf, and dozens of happy dogs… Feeling warmer already!

    • oooh Will have to check it out one day soon Kate! I’ve not been to many NSW beaches that I remember. I know we travelled up the coast when I was a child and we have pics of me on a few, but no memory of them! haha
      I am planning a little family getaway to a couple of famous beaches in 2016, but can’t say too much as it’s highly secret squrrel bussiness šŸ˜‰
