This beach is 75 miles long. It is a registered highway with speed limits.
During my tour (I was on a guided coach tour, although it is possible to take your own off road vehicles onto the island) we stopped off at a handful of places that you can see in my recent and upcoming posts that I will link to the bottom off each post. However the road itself is worth the drive, with constantly changing landscapes on one side and whales swimming near shore on the other.
Our driver, ‘Waz Man’ according to his name badge, was a funny guy.
During the drive we stopped at a small on-beach airfield. This was part of the package, it seems like the tour have made an agreement with the flight company to offer a flight for a cost of $80. It isn’t a bad deal, but I opted not to. Four people got off the bus and flew, circling the beach and then overtaking the coach and landing about twenty minutes later. We met the plane, they got back on the bus and on we went.
The colour of the sands and rock vary here too, there is a lovely footpath we stopped at to take a closer look.
Look at the traffic!
The view below gives away what my next post will be.
Can you see what it is? See you again soon…
