MAIN Beaches US Washington State Beaches

Although the changeable climate of the Northwest doesn’t give coastal areas the reputation it deserves, the summer can be like a day at the beach in the state of Washington.

When the weather’s fine, sandy beaches on Puget Sound and swimming lakes in the Cascades and the Pacific coast offer visitors a chance to enjoy the beach and water sports of all kinds.

And there’s so much to do along the Northern Pacific coast besides swimming. Try beachcombing, clamming, prime Washington State whale watching, and more. It’s all right here — including the top Seattle summer extravaganza at Seafair in July.

Oh, and did we mention the wilderness beaches of Olympic National Park?

Have fun!

DID YOU KNOW? Washington State beach fun facts:

Stretching 28-miles long, Long Beach, WA is the largest and longest sandy beach in the Northwest.

After missing the entrance to what was later named the Columbia River, English explorer John Meares dubbed the headland jutting out into the Pacific Ocean “Cape Disappointment.” Today, Cape Disappointment State Park happily features 27 miles of ocean beach, two lighthouses, camping and spectacularly scenic hiking trails.

Deception Pass State Park (Whidbey Island) was named by early explorers who mistakenly assumed Whidbey Island was a peninsula. Today, the island encompasses one of the most popular state parks in Washington, and its miles of sandy beaches is considered some of the most beautiful in the Puget Sound area.

The area around Alki Beach was named by the Chinook tribe meaning “eventually” or “by and by.” Today, Alki Beach is considered one of Seattle’s hippest, laid-back beach scenes.

Maumee Bay State Park offers not only the finest of recreational facilities in the Midwest, but also a unique natural environment created by the convergence of the land and Lake Erie. The lodge, cottages and golf course are nestled among the scenic meadows, wet woods and lush marshes teeming with wildlife. The balance of recreational facilities with the natural world gives visitors a diverse experience in a coastal environment.

The history of Lake Erie began with the glacial period known as the Pleistocene. Massive sheets of ice gouged and scoured the bedrock of Ohio. Testimony of the ice’s force is found throughout the lake area. Small scratches in the rock surface known as glacial striations are common, while major grooves are rare but awesome.

The wetlands of the Maumee Bay area offer a vivid array of natural wonders. Wetlands contain more species of wildlife than any other habitat type, including: fox snake, northern water snake, painted turtle, chorus frog, green frog, spotted salamander, raccoon, muskrat, dragonfly, caddis fly, and water striders. Over 300 species of birds have been recorded with shorebirds such as snipe, great blue heron, common gallinule and ring-billed gulls residing with waterfowl including Canada geese, pintails, redheads, and ruddy ducks. Songbirds include the red-winged blackbird, yellow warbler, killdeer and swamp sparrow. Spring migration brings many others including the colorful warblers. The plant life is diverse as well. Cattails, buttonbush, phragmites, bur-reed, cottonwood and black willow are just a few examples of the marsh plants at the park.

Several prairies exist in the park that offer interpretive experiences for those visitors interested in the various species and ecosystems found there. Ring-necked pheasants densely populate the meadow areas of the park.

The Lake Erie shoreline sets the stage for the comeback of the bald eagle in Ohio. Nesting pairs have been reported recently in Ohio with the majority being in the western basin of Lake Erie.

For many years, the swamp was a tremendous barrier to western settlement. Most settlers traveled by boat on Lake Erie to reach southern Michigan. Major cities of the area circled the perimeter of the swamp; none lay within it except Bowling Green. In 1859, a law was passed providing for a system of public ditches to drain the land. By 1870, the swamp was still only half cleared. Eventually, after a period of intense lumbering and draining, the swamp had nearly vanished and the area became a major agricultural region.

Acquisition of park lands began in 1974 with matching funds from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Maumee Bay officially became a state park in 1975.

Ohio’s newest state park lodge opened in May of 1991. Quilter Lodge overlooking the Maumee Bay of Lake Erie offers 120 guest rooms each with balcony. Lodge features include racquetball courts, game room, saunas, whirlpools, indoor and outdoor pools, conference and meeting rooms, dining room and lounge, and a snack bar.

The park boasts a modern family campground with 256 sites. The campground is equipped with showerhouses, flush toilets, electricity and playground equipment. The campsites are open and spacious and border natural meadows and ponds which are open to fishing for campers only. Pet camping is also permitted. Rent-A-Camp units consisting of a tent, dining fly, cooler, cook stove and other equipment can be rented during the summer months. Five miles of asphalt “bicycle/pedestrian” trails provide access to most of the day-use areas.

Maumee Bay’s unique 18-hole “Scottish Links” style golf course has low, rolling mounds, bent grass fairways, greens and tees, numerous sand bunkers and ponds. A golf pro-shop is in operation with a PGA certified professional on staff. Lessons and golf outings can be arranged.

Coordinates: 501656N 51413W / 50.28234N 5.23682W / 50.28234; -5.23682

Porthtowan (Cornish: Porth Tewyn, meaning cove of sand dunes) is a small village in Cornwall, England which is a popular summer tourist destination. Porthtowan is on Cornwall’s north Atlantic coast about 2km (1.2mi) west of St Agnes, 4km (2.5mi) north of Redruth, 10km (6.2mi) west of Truro and 15km (9.3mi) south-west of Newquay in the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape, a World Heritage Site.

Porthtowan is popular with surfers and industrial archaeologists; former mine stacks and engine houses dot the landscape.[1]

Porthtowan lies along the 627-hectare (1,550-acre) Godrevy Head to St Agnes heritage coast,[2] which is located on the north Cornwall coast of the Celtic Sea in the Atlantic Ocean. It lies between Godrevy Head (with the Godrevy Towans) and St Agnes Head, north of the village of St Agnes.[3][4][5] The Godrevy to St Agnes Heritage Coast has been a nationally designated protected area since 1986. The marine site protects 40 species of mammals and amphibians.[6][7]

Porthtowan is within walking distance of National Trust coastal and cliff-side walks. Between Porthtowan and Agnes Head is one of Cornwall’s “largest remaining heathland[s].” Ironically, the heath survived – and was not turned into arable land – because of the soil contamination of previous mining activities. Few plants or species other than heathers and spiders can thrive in the area’s environmental condition.[8][nb 1]

Its name comes from the Cornish words “porth” and “tewynn” to mean landing place at the sand dunes.[1]

Porthtowan’s history is associated with mining and one of its most prominent buildings is a former engine house converted for residential use.[citation needed] Allen’s Corn Mill operated at Porthtowan between 1752 and 1816.[10]

Porthtowan owes much of its present day character to its popularity as a local seaside resort in Victorian and Edwardian times when the local populace from Redruth and the surrounding areas went there, particularly on Bank Holidays.[citation needed]

Coastal settlements in Cornwall between Perranporth and Porthtowan had copper, lead, iron, tin and zinc mines. Porthtowan mines mainly produced copper.[11]

The South Wheal Towan copper mine also operated in the area. Still visible is its Echo Corner mine stack.[1] The mine had a slide lode that intersected with the main lode, Hamptons and Downright lode. In addition to copper pyrites, brown iron ore was also found in the mine.[12]

Kovalam – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Beaches  Comments Off on Kovalam – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kovalam is a beach town by the Arabian Sea in Thiruvananthapuram city, Kerala, India, located around 16km from the city center.[1]

Kovalam means a grove of coconut trees and true to its name the village offers an endless sight of coconut trees.

Kovalam first received attention when the Regent Maharani Sethu Lakshmi Bayi of Travancore constructed her beach resort, Halcyon Castle, here towards the end of the 1920s. Thereafter the place was brought to the public eye by her nephew the Maharaja of Travancore.[2] The European guests of the then Travancore kingdom discovered the potentiality of Kovalam beach as a tourist destination in the 1930s. However, Kovalam shot into limelight in the early seventies with arrivals of the masses of hippies on their way to Ceylon in the Hippie Trail. This exodus started the transformation of a casual fishing village of Kerala into one of the most important tourist destinations in all India.[3]

Kovalam has three beaches separated by rocky outcroppings in its 17km coastline, the three together form the famous crescent of the Kovalam beach

Detour past Kovalam junction to land on Samudra Beach which is to the north of Ashoka Beach. One has the option to walk along the sea-wall too.The sight of the waves lashing on the rocks below is awesome. Shallow waters stretching for hundreds of metres are ideal for swimming. The beaches have steep palm covered headlands and are lined with shops that offer all kinds of goods and services.[6]

The larger of the beaches is called Light House Beach for its 35 metre high light house which towers over it atop Kurumkal hillock. The second largest one is Hawah Beach named thus for the topless European women who used to throng there. It was the first topless beach in India.[citation needed] However topless bathing is banned now except in private coves owned by resorts. Visitors frequent these two beaches. The northern part of the beach is known as Samudra Beach in tourism parlance. A large promontory separates this part from the southern side. Samudra Beach doesn’t have tourists thronging there or hectic business. The local fishermen ply their trade on this part. The sands on the beaches in Kovalam are partially black in colour due to the presence of ilmenite and Monazite. The normal tourist season is from September to May. Ashoka beach is also the part of Kovalam beach.

There are a large number of beach resorts in and around Kovalam. The sea port of Vizhinjam is about 3km away and famous for its special varieties of fish, old Hindu temples, big churches and a mosque. The Proposed International Trans shipment Terminal at Vizhinjam is also close to Kovalam.

Kovalam was among the most prominent tourist spots in India during the hippy era. It still has a high status among tourists, who arrive mostly from Europe and Israel.[citation needed] Kovalam is finding a new significance in the light of several Ayurvedic salons, and recuperation and regeneration resorts which provide a wide variety of Ayurvedic treatments for tourists.[7]

Kovalam assembly constituency is part of Trivandrum (Lok Sabha constituency).[8] The assembly constituency of Kovalam is represented by Jameela Prakasham of Janatha Dal. She defeated the sitting MLA Adv. George Mercier.[9][10]

Foes fight plan to renourish Lido beaches

 Beaches  Comments Off on Foes fight plan to renourish Lido beaches
Apr 142015
 

Published: Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at 3:14 p.m. Last Modified: Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at 3:14 p.m.

A group called Save our Siesta Sand has issued a fundraising appeal to raise $50,000 to $100,000 for a potential lawsuit. The group also has retained an expert on coastal geology who is conducting an independent review of the project.

Save our Siesta Sand members are worried that dredging the shoal will diminish its value in protecting Siesta beaches against erosion and impair navigation in Big Pass. They say the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is not listening to their concerns.

We’re prepared if they keep on pressing, said Peter van Roekens, a Save our Siesta Sand board member and former president of the Siesta Key Association.

Save our Siesta Sand is not the only group questioning the project. The Sarasota County Commission voted last August to hire an outside expert to conduct an independent review, which is not completed.

The Corps is proceeding with the dredging plan despite such concerns. Agency officials applied for a state permit recently and released a report declaring the project will not cause environmental harm.

The 190-page draft environmental assessment and accompanying Finding of No Significant Impact cover a range of potential concerns, but most importantly they reiterate the agency’s position that dredging the Big Pass shoal will not reduce the accumulation of sand or lead to erosion on Siesta Key, and that alternative sources of sand for the Lido renourishment are not suitable.

Engineers involved with the project will be in Sarasota today to hold a public meeting on the environmental assessment and provide a general update on their work.

The Corps submitted an application last month to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for a permit authorizing the Big Pass dredging and other components of the Lido beach renourishment plan. Critics can still raise objections through the DEP permitting process and submit formal comments on the environmental assessment, but the Corps has no plans to modify the design at this point.

What we put out already is what we’re standing by, said Corps spokeswoman Susan Jackson.

Oil slick spreads to West Vancouver beaches

Apr 142015
 

VANCOUVER The federal coast guard is defending itself against the latest round of criticism to its oil-spill response in Vancouvers harbour amid questions about how the slick washed up on beaches to the north.

An Environment Canada official confirmed Tuesday that oil had spread to West Vancouver beaches, even as the coast guard said the spill had been 90 per cent contained.

Coast guard commissioner Jody Thomas said assessing the response while the multi-agency cleanup and investigation was still underway would be a rush to judgment.

She disputed statements by B.C.s environment minister, Mary Polak, who chastised the coast guard for not assuming control of the spill that began Wednesday until Friday.

She is incorrect, Thomas told a news conference, where she was flanked by seven other officials from various agencies.

She said coast guard crews were dispatched immediately to manage the spill and look for its source as they worked alongside the Western Canada Marine Response Corp., and Port Metro Vancouver.

Coast guard was running instant command from Wednesday evening, Thomas said.

Environment Canada spokesman Carl Brown didnt specify when the slick reached West Vancouver or how much turned up.

Oil moves fairly rapidly on the surface of water based on the currents that exist, based on a portion of the winds and also based on the tides, he said on the phone from Ottawa.

Early on we were tasked with doing some spill modelling and we were able to predict where the oil would go and it did show some impact on those beaches.

Stakeholders demand the phasing out of plastic materials

Health News of Friday, 20 March 2015

Source: GNA

Stakeholders at a days forum on cleanliness of the beaches held in Sekondi have called for the phasing out of the use of plastic materials.

The stakeholders, made up of civil society, fishermen, assembly members and representatives of various institutions came up with the suggestion at the forum organized by the Save Our Beaches Ghana, an Accra based NGO which has focus on the cleanliness of the countrys beaches.

It was held on the theme Our beaches, our heritage and our role.

The stakeholders said though the suggestion might not favour some people and institutions that was the solution to a sound, clean and healthy environment and the beaches as the plastic waste was menace to society.

Dr Augustine Kwesi Amoako, Senior Medical Officer at the Essikado Government Hospital, said 85 percent of pollution at the beaches and sea were plastics generated on the land caused by human activities.

He said pollution at the sea and off shore had health implication as they affected the marine creature which is passed on to humans through consumption thus affecting the human organs.

Mr Kobina Okyere Darko-Mensah, MP for Takoradi, called for the active involvement of traditional authorities in sanitation issues as they were in direct contact with the people and could easily impress on them to take up the task.

Mr Darko-Mensah called for strict enforcement of the regulation on sanitary matters and also empower the City Guards to cause the arrest those who break sanitary laws.

SANDY HOOK, N.J. The Jersey shore’s 127 miles of beaches are famous for their beauty and natural wonder.

And once a year, they’re also famous for the disgusting debris either left behind by beachgoers or washed up with the tides from points unknown.

The Clean Ocean Action environmental group on Monday released its annual list of trash picked up by volunteers during spring and fall cleanups last year.

Items retrieved from the sands included a whoopee cushion, parking meter, bra padding, wig and stun gun. Also found were a clay sculpture of baby Jesus, a trash bag full of loose arcade tickets, and a TV remote. (Yes, THAT’s where you put it.)

Plastic pieces were the most common trash, comprising 13 percent of the more than 315,000 items collected from the shoreline.
