Beach Of Moonlight

It used to be a place where children and adults goes for swimming and many people picnic along the white sandy beach. I recall they had a hotel resort with a swimming pool but the beach has eroded because of the strong wave. The pool which was about 500 meters to the sea has now sunk. Except the swimming pool, the resort owner were able to move the chalets away further from the sea. According to a villager nearby said, two mosques already sunk since 40 years ago. The beach used to be 1 kilometer away. Nowadays nobody swim at the beach because the wave and the under water current is strong making the sea unsafe for swimmers. But it seems to be a favourite place for fishing.

Both are fabulous shots! I love the wispy clouds in the first photo and the silvery reflection in the water of the second. Happy SWF and happy weekend!

It's very pretty there. Maybe pretty to look, but not swim.

If one can't swim, maybe a walk along the it's coastline would suffice. After all it's a beautiful setting.

Beautiful pictures.
I used to have a picnic there and took slide photography (that was in 1986).
