Shell Beach, Peron Peninsula, Shark Bay, WA

At 110km long, Shell Beach is one of only two beaches in the world made completely out of shells.

 

The shells on this beach are all the small cockle species Fragum erugatum.

 

The beach forms a sustainable resource as the shells concrete together and are cut out in blocks and used as a naturally insolating building material.
