I know I have my favourites but how do you judge a beach? The colour of the sand or the softness underfoot?
The angle short and steep like some in the south west or the barely sloping in the north west like 80 Mile beach and Barn Hill where the tide goes out forever. Tiny hidden coves or great sweeping arcs, powdery soft dunes or iron rich red cliffs. Blinding white silica sand like Whitehaven in the Great Barrier Reef or a perfect curving arc like Apollo Bay in the south.
