The holiday makers we saw all had coconut-brown faces. A warm, tangy odour came from the sea as we walked towards a hot dog stand.Clown-hatted donkeys were braying loudly as children pulled their tails. The sulfurous mustard burned us nearly as much as the sun.
The siren call of the sea was soothing, the wave music welcome.
It was like being wrapped in comforting cellophanes of warm sounds and soft light.
LEVEL 2: A BASIC PARAGRAPH The beach we walked on was moon glow-gold.
The sea looked dozy as it rested in the afternoon glow. Towers of radiant light soaked the sea with their beauty.
In the distance, streamers of tapered light splayed out, flowing through cracks in the cloud. Slumbering in its blue robe, the sea greeted us and the half-moon of beach softly.
The sand was floury underfoot and a feathery, sugar-white of hue.
I have also included Levels 1-5 taken from the book if you wish to describe the beach with the 5 senses. DESCRIBING A CALM SEA A dreamy sea has a rhythmic pulse to it unmatched by any other part of nature.

Looking around the secluded beach, we didn’t see any of the normal sights; tourists with Day-Glo tans, tacky stands or chattering hawkers.
We realised that we were standing in the gateway of paradise.
