Learn More About The Beach Drawing

Beaches are rocky or sandy areas located where oceans or seas meet the land. Most beaches have either white or golden sand, depending on the composition of the material.

However, some beaches sport sand in a variety of other colors, such as the Muriwai Black Sand Beach, New Zealand; the green Papakolea Beach of Big Island, Hawaii; the Red Beach in Santorini, Greece; and the Pink Sand Beach of Harbour Island, Bahamas.

Waves deposit items such as seashells and seaweed on many beaches. Some are inhabited by animals such as gulls, crabs, or sea turtles.

Beaches are common symbols of summertime and family vacations. Beaches often host lifeguards, showers, changing tents, restaurants, piers, docks, or resort hotels.

There are also so-called "wild beaches," which do not have any man-made structures. These beaches are either remote or protected to preserve their natural beauty.
