=== More on Beaches ===
A beach is a landform along the shoreline of an ocean, sea, lake or river. It usually consists of loose particles, which are often composed of rock, such assand, gravel, shingle, pebbles or cobblestones. The particles comprising the beach are occasionally biological in origin, such as mollusc shells or coralline algae.
Wild beaches are beaches that do not have lifeguards or trappings of modernity nearby, such as resorts, camps and hotels. They are sometimes called undeclared, undeveloped or undiscovered beaches. Wild beaches can be valued for their untouched beauty and preserved nature. They are most commonly found in less developed areas including, for example, parts ofPuerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia.
Beaches typically occur in areas along the coast where wave or current actiondeposits and reworks sediments.
Beaches are the result of wave action by which waves or currents move sand or other loosesediments of which the beach is made as these particles are held in suspension. Alternatively, sand may be moved by saltation (a bouncing movement of large particles). Beach materials come from erosion of rocks offshore, as well as from headland erosion andslumping producing deposits of scree. Some of the whitest sand in the world, along Florida'sEmerald Coast, comes from the erosion of quartz in the Appalachian Mountains. A coral reefoffshore is a significant source of sand particles.
The shape of a beach depends on whether the waves are constructive or destructive, and whether the material is sand or shingle. Constructive waves move material up the beach while destructive waves move the material down the beach. On sandy beaches, the backwash of the waves removes material forming a gently sloping beach. On shingle beaches the swash is dissipated because the large particle size allows percolation, so the backwash is not very powerful, and the beach remains steep. Cusps and horns form where incoming waves divide, depositing sand as horns and scouring out sand to form cusps. This forms the uneven face on some sand shorelines.
Several beaches are claimed to be the "world's longest", including Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh (120 kilometres [75 mi] unbroken), Praia do Cassino (212 kilometres [132 mi]) in Brazil, Fraser Island beach, 90 Mile Beach in Australia (151 kilometres [94 mi]) and 90 Mile Beach in New Zealand (88 kilometres [55 mi]), Troia-Sines Beach (63 kilometres [39 mi]) in Portugal and Long Beach, Washington(which is about 40 kilometres [25 mi]).
