Mahogany Bay is the Complete Package! Isla Roatan, Honduras

Posted by E.G.D. on May 29, 2018

Last week, to celebrate my younger sister’s doctoral graduation, the two of us and our parents (Jody and Greg) went on a very nice cruise.  In the first two ports of call, we had some very specific plans that involved shore excursions, which are basically paid day-trips to specific places.  The third port of call was Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Honduras, and I am pleased to report that the port pretty much is the destination, and it is set up with everything a person needs for a fantastic day with no real need for any sort of paid extras.  They offer the paid extras, of course, but they’re really quite unnecessary if you happen to be a regular beach-goer who doesn’t mind short uphill walks.

First things first, the walk from the dock to the beach is short and scenic, and even if you have difficulty walking between things, the path is lined with chairs, benches, and hammocks that are free for anyone to use.  If you want to pay extra, you can take what amounts to a ski-lift down to the beach, but it seems a little silly unless you have difficulty walking or unless you really want to see the walkway from above.  Once you get to the beach, there are tons of beach chairs, and if you like, you can potentially pay for ones that have little canopies.  Again, the paid option seems a little silly, since there are seriously a whole lot of chairs, and you have your pick of sun or shade.

We went with shade, and we had a great view, as well as easy access to the beach and the snorkeling pier.

Speaking of which, the beach and the snorkeling pier are delightful!  The facilities are abundant and clean (lots of showers and bathroom stalls), there is a life-guard manning the snorkeling pier, and the swimming area is clearly marked.

It’s really the complete package, even without extras!  If you bring your own snorkeling gear, the only place you might find yourself compelled to spend money is in the shops, which I have to admit are seriously awesome.  There’s a market that has stalls for local craftsmen, and we all found great, hand-made souvenirs, not to mention local, organic chocolate.

That being said, I would definitely recommend that if you find yourself in Mahogany Bay, you should leave the ship for the beach fairly early to claim your beach chairs and enjoy the day before the really roasting heat happens.  We went snorkeling three times, enjoyed the sandy beach, and took lots and lots of pictures well before the temperature spiked, and then we went back to the ship for lunch and a shower before we went back to do the above-mentioned souvenir shopping.

Yes, the ships really are docked that close! (Photo by Jody Diehl)

Also, as you can see, by the time we left that first time, the beach was getting pretty crowded!  It’s a big enough beach with enough seating, though, that it wasn’t really a problem.

I suppose my point is that Mahogany Bay makes for a great day at the beach, and pretty much everything you need (or really, even want in our case) is included in the price of your cruise.  If you find yourself there someday, I strongly recommend that you check the place out and make your buying decisions after you see what is available to you at no extra charge.  It was a great way for us to kick off our summer beach season!

I hope your summer kick-off is equally beachy -E.G.D.

Edible Beach Treasures: A Seaside Smorgasbord!

Posted by E.G.D. on January 25, 2018

White Sands National Monument

Soaptree Yucca at Dusk (Bits of This Plant are Edible!)

Once upon a time, I lived in Honolulu, and I have a number of Hawaiian friends who were happy to find and eat raw sea creatures on day trips to the beach.  It’s part of the culture, though I have to admit, I found it a little bit yucky.  You see, while thousands of people worldwide associate beach trips with seafood, I happen to be a vegetarian.  The situation got me asking this question, though: what is a person to do when he or she is a vegetarian at the beach if he/she forgot to pack a picnic?  After a bit of research, I now know that depending on the time of year and the specific beach, a vegetarian might have even better luck foraging for food than the shellfish eaters!

Now, of course, some of these edible plants are all kinds of obvious, like coconuts when you’re in Hawaii (or other tropical islands/ archipelagos) or like shallow-water seaweeds when you’re in Japan.  Some of these things are less obvious, but are still quite easy to identify when you know what you’re looking for.  Here are some articles with great pictures that can help you locate, identify, and prepare these specially edible beach treasures:

1. The first article is from Sanibel Sea School:

5 Edible Plants on Sanibel

Four of the plants are recommended for their fruits, and one for its leaves, and they all look delicious! If you’re planning a foraging expedition in Florida, this is the article for you.

2. The next article is by Real World Survivor:

8 Edible Wild Coastal Plants

This particular article is delightfully specific in its plant descriptions and recommendations for what bits a person should eat!

3. Our third article is actually more like a very long, detailed list!  DIY Wood Boat gives us the names and regions of a truly remarkable number of edible beach plants:

Edible Seashore Plants and Seaweed

It doesn’t give you much by way of pictures, but once you have the names and regions where the plants can be found, I’m confident you could google yourself some reference images!

4. Next is a UK specific article from Goeff’s Fungi & Foraging:

Coastal Plants

The article is informative, the reference images are lovely, and the author appears to be happy to answer specific questions about forageable beach plants, which is a really cool perk.

5. My last article selection is from Rhoscolyn Life:

Edible Coastal Flora to Look Out For

Seeing as Rhoscolyn is a British village, this one is also UK specific.  I especially like this article for its helpful tips about how best to prepare the various coastal vegetables.

To wrap things up, there are all sorts of edible leaves, seeds, and fruits on the seashores of the world, but please bear in mind that some are protected, like sea oats, and some can resemble other plants that are actually poisonous, like several varieties of berry.   Believe it or not, falling coconuts can also cause grievous bodily harm!  I suppose my ultimate conclusion is forage away, beachgoers, but know before you go.  Also, don’t forget to invite me to your picnic ^_^.

The Treasures of Winter Tides

Posted by E.G.D. on January 15, 2018

pins11Hello, beachgoers!  We’ve mentioned it before, but I’ve decided to bring it up again:  the dead of winter is a fantastic time for beachcombing.  I was perusing the internet today, and it seemed like every time I stumbled upon articles about the best beaches to visit in January and February, the writers of those articles were sending beachgoers to warmer climes either on/near the equator or in the southern hemisphere (where it happens to be summer).  It might seem weird for some, but I quite like having at least a couple of seasons in my year, and I’ve never thought it was less fun to visit a beach in the winter than to visit a beach in the summer.  Therefore, I was inspired to make a concerted effort, and I found a few great articles about finding treasures on the beach when/where it’s cold outside.  I’ve decided to share my finds with the Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches world!

The first article is from NCCoast.com (a website about the North Carolina Coast):

The Winter Beach – Shelling on the NC Coast

The article has fantastic advice about the best times to hit the beach, as well as advice about responsible shell collecting.

The second article is from CaptivaSanibel.com:

Best time for shelling on the islands comes during winter, extreme tides

I know the title seems to say it all, but the article is fantastic, and it quotes a true expert on the subject.

The third article is from chesapeakefamily.com:

Winter Beachcombing in Maryland

This article is a wealth of family daytrip advice that includes a list of great Maryland beaches to hit on cold winter days!

Don’t let the title of this last one from theislandermagazine.com fool you!  It talks about beachcombing Galveston island in all of the cold months:

Fall Beachcombing

What I quite like about this particular article is that it covers most all of my favorite treasures, including sea beans, shells, shark teeth, and sea glass.

I hope that gives everyone hiding from the cold indoors some food for thought.  Sometimes walking in a winter wonderland means day-tripping to your nearest beach.

Loving Lewes Beach, Delaware

Posted by E.G.D. on August 14, 2017

Today’s featured guest writer is Audrey Dautenhahn.

While I was born in the southwest, I grew up visiting various California beaches and experiencing the beauty of the Pacific Ocean. Now, I live in the northeast, and I’m getting to explore an entirely different set of seashores. Lewes Beach in Delaware is fabulous–so fabulous, in fact, that I only managed to snap a couple of photos!

Our idea to visit the shore was not original, and the beach was busy on a Saturday morning in the middle of summer, but we found a nice spot to place our umbrella. A sandbar extended out from the shoreline, and my kids could wade out several yards from shore. We enjoyed watching the Cape May Lewes Ferry make trips over to New Jersey, and wagons would pass by, offering water ice for sale. (We took them up on their offer, and it was delicious.)

This is a really nice family beach, and I know that we will return. (But first, there are more beaches to visit!)

About today’s featured guest writer:  Audrey Dautenhahn is a freelance writer and super-mom home school teacher.  She is passionate about writing urban fantasy love stories like her novel, Look and See, which was released in 2015, and she is currently working on the second book in her Acts of Valar series.  She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and four children.

Montego Bay, Mon!

Posted by E.G.D. on April 12, 2017

“Doctor’s Cave, Montego Bay Jamaica, mon! It’s our beach break and day two of snorkeling!” Jody wrote on 4/10.

Doctor’s Cave, Montego Bay! Photos copyright Jody Diehl

As I mentioned in the last post, Jody and Greg are off on a fabulous beach cruise, and it looks like they had all kinds of fun on the beaches and in the water of Jamaica.  As always, Jody’s capturing the fun on camera.

17883838_1223096017788260_8772948531797873783_n

Pretty amazing, right?  According to http://www.doctorscavebathingclub.com/ :

“The facilities are excellent. The club has well kept changing rooms, showers and lavatories…  Beach chairs, umbrellas and lilos can be rented daily, the beach is manicured every morning and the translucent waters which the doctors recognized as buoyant and invigorating have not changed.”

The “have not changed” bit is referring to the beach’s 100 year history and the fact that a doctor in the 1920s wrote an article about the beach’s “curative powers.”  In each its own way, any good beach has curative powers, right?  It’s good for the soul!  This looks like an exceptionally refreshing beach ^_^.

How to Sneak in an Extra Beach

Posted by E.G.D. on April 11, 2017

Hello, beachgoers!  Greg and Jody are off on another one of their grand adventures, and true to form, they actually found an extra beach to visit in transit to a cruise that will be stopping at a large number of fabulous beaches.  Did you know that Cypress Point Park is walk-able from TPA (Tampa International Airport) and a good number of the airport hotels?  Granted, Google Maps says it could take a person an hour on foot from the airport.  For those of you who would rather do your walking on the actual beach, there’s a bus you can catch from the terminal for $2 each way.

It would appear it’s a lovely location for kicking around at the beach (albeit without your canine friends), as well as plane spotting!  According to Tampagov.net, “Cypress Point Park is a relatively undiscovered treasure with a beautiful beach. The park includes a .90-mile asphalt trail and .44 miles of nature trails. Cypress Point Park provides visitors with stunning sunsets, gorgeous beach walks, dunes, beach wildflowers, and fishing opportunities. Park amenities include a bus stop, ample parking, ADA accessibility, bicycle racks, benches, a boardwalk, a canoe launch and picnic pavilions.”

So, ladies and gentlemen, if you have a layover in Tampa and you don’t feel like spending hours and hours inside an airport, you now know that you have the option of popping out for a quick beach trip!  I don’t know about you, but when I’m flying long distances, I’ll take any excuse to stretch my legs, and there’s no better place to do that than a good beach.

Do you know any good escape-the-airport layover beaches?  We’d love to hear about them!  Please drop us a line in the comments, and if we get a good response, I’ll patch together an airport-beaches list for the site.  In the meantime, have a great day, hopefully at the beach.

Return of a Treasure Hunter!

Posted by E.G.D. on March 11, 2017

Today’s Featured Guest Writer is Ken Muise, who last wrote us a post in 2015!  Congratulations on the beach-move, Ken, from all of the Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches treasure hunters (all of whom have moved to the beach since starting this website ^_^.  We totally get it!).

Finally…I Moved to that Beach! (Well, Near it…)

10891837_633604230095061_6312845951085263796_n-2

Ken Muise, Our Featured Guest Writer

Hello to all the beach lovers once again!

Nearly 2 years ago I wrote a guest post here on BT&TB about how much I loved looking for sea shells on Makaha Beach on the west coast of Oahu.  Well, here it is:  I’m retiring from the military at the end of March and I am actually moving about 400 yards away from that beach!  It’s a condo/beach community called Makaha Surfside.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not rich.  I just happened to luck into a 500 sq ft condo that is everything that I ever wanted.  It’s a great deal.

So, in the last two years, what have I been doing on Oahu?

Going to the Beach- 

LOL.  Seriously, I think there are only a few beaches on the island that I haven’t been to.  If you’ve been to Oahu then you know that it’s kind of a feat!  Makaha is still one of my faves.

Visting the Beaches on the other Hawaiian Islands- 

I’ve been to beaches on Maui, Big Island, and Kauai at this point.  I’m here to tell you…it’s paradise!  One of my favorite spots in the state is the beach that is part of the Marriott Kauai Resort.  Man, it’s beautiful!

Still Snorkeling-

I have a couple different snorkel gear review sites online now and things are going really well.  One of my favorite moments of my life was when my girlfriend and I got into the water at Honaunau on the Big Island and within 90 seconds we were swimming, watching and filming an entire pod of dolphins.  It was awesome!  Especially since so many visitors pay an arm and a leg to “swim with dolphins” while there on vacation.  Check out my video…EPIC!

I really wanted to come back and say “thanks” to everyone at BT&TB for letting me guest post waaaay back in July of 2015.  Something the military taught was to never fail to show gratitude where it’s meant.  So, if you’re ever on Oahu…please hit me up and you’ll always have a couch to crash on…100 feet from the beach.

About the Author:  Ken Muise is an active-duty (almost retired) soldier stationed on Oahu.  He owns and runs a snorkel gear review site as well as a move to Hawaii blog.  When Ken isn’t working he is usually snorkeling or upset when he can’t go snorkeling.  Much to the chagrin of those around him, Ken calls himself a “world class snorkeler” and believes he does it better than most.

S.H.A.R.K. in the Sky!

Posted by E.G.D. on September 23, 2016

It isn’t really noticeable here in the Houston area yet, but it is officially autumn!  Can you believe it?  Summer just flew by.  One way or another, we’re past peak beach season, which never really made much sense to me.  In the autumn and winter months, I’m as likely to go to the beach as spring and summer.  Granted, the sorts of things I do on the beaches change with the seasons.  In the colder months, most of us are pretty unlikely to go wading and swimming, but shelling is often best in the dead of winter, and if you ask me, there’s no better time for beach kite flying than autumn!  Here in La Porte, TX, we are truly fortunate to have a spectacular organization that sends sea creatures into the sky on a pretty regular basis right at our very own Sylvan Beach: The South Houston Area Recreational Kiters, or S.H.A.R.K. for short.

At the tail end of last autumn, Jody (my mom) captured some great photographs of some S.H.A.R.K. kites, and while we were there, the kiters kindly arranged it so that we could pet the dolphin kite (and while doing so, we got a chance to show everyone how big these kites really are!).  The only photo in this lineup that does not belong to Jody is the one of crab ground-kites, which were at Sylvan Beach on a different day and were photographed by F. Travis Riley.  I hope you enjoy the slideshow:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you like what you see, S.H.A.R.K. meets to fly beachy kites at beaches all over the Port of Houston/Galveston Bay area.  They have a great calendar of events that lets you know where they’ll be and when.

Have a great start to your autumn, everyone!  I hope you don’t miss a chance to see high-flying sea creatures at a beach sometime soon- E.G.D.

The Best Little Beach Towns On The Pacific Coast

Posted by E.G.D. on July 16, 2016

Today’s Featured Guest Writer is Claire Lovesti.

The west coast may be best known for San Fran and LA, but these beachy babies are sure to make any vacation worthwhile.

The big stars of California (L.A., Long Beach, Napa Valley) and bustling cities of Washington (Space needle anyone?) get all the good reviews on TripAdvisor, but when it comes to getting the small town experience to a t, it’s more about the west coast towns that are a little off the radar.

From beautiful northern islands all the way down to Laguna, here are five beaches that are bound to make you lust after a trip out west.

  1. San Juan Islands, Washington
View_of_Roche_Harbor_at_Sunset_from_the_McMillan_Suites

View of Roche Harbor from the McMillan Suites by Bhsantos

This archipelago in Washington with a penchant for northwestern landscape and wildlife are literally a sight to behold. From the horseshoe shaped Orca Island to the bustling Roche Harbor on San Juan, there’s plenty to do and see here to make any beach vacation a gorgeous one. For orca whale sightings, head for the national park on Orca Island. For great hiking and kayaking, head for Moran State Park. With accessibility between these islands limited almost exclusively to boats (Anacorte is the only town you can connect to the mainland by bridge), it’s a dream situation where you’re literally cut off from the rest of the world by, at the very least, a charming ferry ride. Stay at the Roche Harbor Resort in your very own town house and grab a bite at Lime Kiln Cafe—it’s a mix of great views and a great breakfast!

  1. Cannon Beach, Oregon

Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, Oregon

Cannon Beach may be Oregan’s less famous beach town, but it gets you out of the way of all of the tourist traffic of Seaside and offers the same excellent beach feel. Haystack Rock is known for it’s killer landscape and beautiful beach atmosphere (also well known for being featured in The Goonies and Point Break) and is a must-see stop on your itinerary, as is Hug Point State Recreation Park with it’s waterfall and excellent hiking opportunities. Arch Cape Inn & Retreat will provide European style architecture (and eco-friendly outdoor excursions) while Cannon Beach Hotel offers the classic New England style B&B with excellent beach views. With a healthy restaurateur selection, I suggest making plans at The Irish Table (worth the wait in line) and Tom’s Fish and Chips for a local, quick bite.

  1. Monterey, California
img_2812

Cannery Row’s Beach in Monterey, CA

Monterey’s claim to fame may have been all the sardine canneries along the coast, but good news for the tourists (and for the smell) Cannery Row is now a waterfront delight that looks like the “Good Ole Days” but is bustling with excellent, modern attractions. Boasting an excellent seaside aquarium, a stellar brewing company (an original Cannery Row beer milkshake anyone?), and a beautiful inn or two, Monterey is the place to go for local culture, flavor, and an authentic West Coast beach vibe that has nothing to do with surfing or getting the perfect beach tan. American classic novelist John Steinbeck wrote of the Canneries in his novel, Cannery Row, and while Steinbeck’s character enjoyed his beer milkshake, I bet any traveller is going to enjoy it more since it’s gotten an upgrade since it’s literary mention in 1945.

  1. Santa Barbara, California
Aerial-SantaBarbaraCA10-28-08

By John Wiley User:Jw4nvc – Santa Santa Barbara, California

 

While Santa Barbara might not be anyone’s idea of a small beach town, it’s undeniable that this charming city by the sea is definitely underrated. From the picturesque boardwalk to the extensive botanical gardens, there’s so much more to do than just enjoy the beach life (and that’s perfectly great for me). This beach town is perfect for travelers who like to get in plenty of cultural stops as well as sun rays, so make sure to stop at Lotusland for an exotic botanical experience, the Chumash Painted Cave State Historic Park including Native American stone paintings, and Arlington Theatre for a cool, old-fashioned movie theatre vibe.

For fans of a packed itinerary, download the Best of Santa Barbara app from the iTunes store for free and enjoy the limitless options that the city has to offer. Heading to the West Coast from out of town? All non-US travelers can grab a local SIM card for their unlocked iPhone and save on international plans while keeping the same service!

  1. Laguna Beach, California
Laguna Beach Califonria by D Ramey Logan

Laguna Beach, CA by D Ramey Logan

 

While the innuendo of a Lauren Conrad or Kristin Cavallari apocalypse comes along with any mention of Laguna, it’s still the most picturesque little beach town on the California coast. Full of art galleries, fantastic restaurants, and that full-on beach town vibe, this nook previously visited by artists and writers is now a great place for families, couples, and friends to go on vacation. If you’ve got the vacation budget, I suggest a stay at the The Inn At Laguna Beach—crystal beach water views, excellent food and coffee, and just steps away from the main town center of Laguna.

If you’re aiming for a relaxed, off the beaten path vibe, these five choices are sure to give you that beach tan and hang ten vibe—just a word of warning, you may never want to leave!

Jake and Carla’s Texas Treasure Trove

Posted by E.G.D. on July 8, 2016

Today’s guest post, including the beautiful beach treasure photographs, is courtesy of Jake and Carla W.

Hi. I’m Jake and my treasure hunting partner is my wife Carla. This is my first post. The first pics are from 7/5/16, and the rest are from the last 2 to 3 months. We live south of Houston in Brazoria county. We treasure hunt in 3 Texas counties: Galveston, Brazoria, and Matagorda.

The last pics we think might be a partial megalodon tooth! I’ve emailed pics to a professor, but we haven’t heard back. Any input on that from the readers of Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches would be appreciated.

As you can see we like to go to the beach. Carla says its the only place we get along (LOL!). Anyway, enjoy the photos and happy hunting.  -Jake and Carla.

About the Authors: “Jake and I are both in our 40’s and have been together for a little over three years. We love camping, fishing and shell seeking. We seem to have created an unspoken deal where he teaches me how to catch really big fish and I try to teach him the patience and tenacity needed to find shark teeth. I’m more into shells and driftwood, he’s searching for antique bottles and the occasional pirate treasure chest. To an outsider, we must seem odd, as we can go for hours with very little conversation and be content being with one another and our passions. But it works for us.” ~Carla
