Lord Howe Island - Middle Beach


This is Middle Beach, another pretty beach with rockpools and good beachcombing at low tide. Very steep access and I didn't feel up to the climb this time round. There are some amazing banyan trees nearby which I will show you later. One thing I did notice this time was the amount of erosion, some of the beaches are much narrower than I remember, particularly Lagoon Beach which now has steep drop offs down to the sand where the bank has washed away. The drop is right at the edge of Pinetrees Boathouse which itself will eventually be washed away. There used to be a swathe of grass between the boathouse area and the sand.

Wonderful.

Looks like paradise, especially those light coloured areas of ocean.

Looks beautiful Ann, but a bit of a worry about the level of erosion. We have similar problems over here in certain areas, I guess it's the same everywhere.
