If Heaven Were a Beach

I've never made any quibbles about my love for the sea. I have a passion for discovering beautiful beaches, and I've been quite lucky to have been to quite a few. But I must say that if heaven were a beach (and to me, it most probably will be), it would definitely look like this.



This is Bunker Bay, just a few kilometers off Dunsborough, on the amazing Southwest region of Western Australia. It's white sand, turquoise waters, and calm, sloping shoreline make it as close to paradise a beach can get. Near enough to be worth the drive but far enough to remain undiscovered. I will most definitely back here someday. If I had a choice to stay here, you would have had to drag me away kicking and screaming.

I will, most definitely, be back.

Hi!
I love to look at a lovely beach like this. Which part of Australia is this?
See you around.

@ness: it's soooo much better in real life. my friend and i were just standing there and wishing that we could tuck into that corner of the world forever and never leave. it was so beautiful!

@lunaticg: it's on Georgaphe Bay in vast and beautiful Western Australia. It's about a 3 hour drive from Perth... but definitely worth the trip. But I hear there are heaps and heaps of paradise pockets along the vast Oz coast, specially around Queensland.
