Sitting on Karon beach I realised that so many of the beaches of this world hold many basic similarities yet are wildly different. Different in water temperature, salt content of the sea and colour and texture of the sand. The similarities are in the sun and palm trees and the vivid green that lines the banks of many of our oceans and lakes.

This compilation of beaches and coasts spans 15 years of beachgoing. I hope it inspires you to check out your closest beach. Note some images were captured on rock faces so not all beaches are purely sand in my opinion. there are plenty more to explore in the years to come!
