Sea beaches are found in a considerable lot of the world’s seaside districts, just as along the shores of significant rivers and lakes. Sea beaches are of incredible financial significance as they are the top vacation spots. There are various methods of characterizing beaches and we’d like you to know all of them.
Let’s go with the FLOW! (pun intended)
As the name suggests, a shell beach is entirely made up of shells, shells of almost all shapes and sizes. The shells that cover these beaches are mainly from dead mollusks and are deposited on the shore by waves. This is the main tourist attraction for the people who are fond of collecting shells and love beading them into bracelets and art pieces. Some amazing shell sea beaches are located in Western Australia, Florida, and Greece.
Sandy beaches are the ones which you will find in most of the countries. This type of beach occurs typically on coasts that experience low-energy waves, which make them a perfect tourist spot to chill amidst those beachy breezes. Here you can find many magnificent marine animals. Some of the beautiful sandy beaches are champagne beach, Nissi beach, and Petani beach.
These sea beaches are one of the most exotic beaches around the globe, a perfect spot for all the people who love clicking pictures to maintain their classic Instagram feeds. These beaches are full of white pebbles that provide a perfect aesthetic background for your snaps. For those who look forward to sea sports like surfing this isn’t the place for them. Pebble beaches are formed after pebbles carried by ocean currents are deposited on the shore by high energy waves. Some of the pebble beaches you must visit are Alby (Sweden), Birdling’s Flat ( New Zealand ), and Hawar Islands (Bahrain).
Cave beaches are the ones surrounded by caves ranging in all sizes formed by the action of sea waves. They offer beautiful summers with crystal clear refreshing water.

Some of the perfect cave beaches are Benagil Beach Sea Cave (Algarve), Phang Nga Bay Caves (Phuket) and Sea Lion Cave (Florence).
Boulder beaches are so named due to the boulders that cover their shorelines. Boulder is a huge rock, which is shaped by continuous erosion. The size of the boulders ranges from tiny pebble sized to huge multistory house sized. These beaches can be found in Cape Town, Africa, Philippines and Australia.
If sandy and rocky aren’t the one for you, muddy beaches offer another unique beach experience. These shores are covered with clayey soil which is an outcome of the low tides. These tides often expose wet and soft soil, perfect for those little sandcastles. They are mostly found in Asia and North America.
Beaches can also be defined by their locations and one such beach is an urban beach. These beaches are artificial beaches designed in urban areas to stimulate beachy vibes for the city people.
