Rocky Beach

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 22 May 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

Rocky beaches, giant driftwood logs, pounding waves and views of offshore islands known as 'seastacks' are features that define Rialto Beach. It's possible to get stranded when certain areas of the coast become impassable when high tide rolls in.

People regularly experience an unexpected drenching from rogue waves on Rialto.

The sea is magnificent and the prominent character brings the whole thing to life. Is that you?
