FORMATION OF BEACHES

Beach is a zone of materials accumulated along the coast.

DID YOU NOTICE THE HEADLAND ROCKS ARE THE SAME COLOUR WITH THE BEACH DEPOSITED MATERIALS? EXPLAIN HOW THE PROCESS WORKS?

A beach is formed when deposited materials carried by waves are accumulated in a zone along the coast. The materials on the beach vary in size from fine sand to pebbles . The waves sort these materials according to the weight. The finer sand deposited nearer the sea and the coarser materials further inland.
