View of the Coral beach from the top of the rise.

The coral is actually not coral but, a dried, calcified seaweed known as maerl.

Maerl in different shapes and sizes

The small island opposite the beach is Lampay whereas the larger island straight ahead is Isay. Both islands enhance the view.

If you look closely at the coral you can see intricate patterns made by the ebbing tide amongst the rocks and seaweed. There are many different shells with wonderful colours. Here is an excerpt from my poem Island Shore.

Island Shore

Gentle breeze cooling the skin,

Turquoise glass is shimmering.

Lapping waves on the coral band,

Tides ebbing flow, with fizzing sand…

Sue Wood

I took this video of the crystal clear waves lapping against the shore.

I am so lucky to live on this island!

The setting sun created long shadows.
