When it comes to postcard quality beaches, I feel there are two main categories. There’s your aqua lagoon style beach found in many tropical hideaways. With large coconut palms and a gentle breeze blowing (maybe with a cold beverage in the hand as well). Then there’s what I regard as pristine costal beauty. Roaring oceans, large sea cliffs and isolated.
The image below I believe fits the second category perfectly. Salmon Beach is located in the the southwest corner of Western Australia, within the D’entrecasteau National Park. We arrived about an hour before sunset and as I strolled over the dunes I was blown away. Everything fell into place and I feel that at that moment in time I was in one of the most stunning places on earth. The light was perfect, the temperature was mild and there was not a sole to be seen, except for a lone surf fisherman casting a rod in the distance.
This is what makes the costal regions of Western Australia so enticing. Yes there are plenty of beautiful spots in the world but I dare say. None that are as sparsely populated as those found in Western Australia. Simply stunning…..
