It is the only caravan park along the road, at least the only one remotely advertised for, between Port Hedland and Broome. It is only about 2.5 hours to Broome from there, but it was already getting dark and we wanted to arrive in Broome during the day. Eighty Mile Beach Caravan Park is huge; it houses miners and gets really busy in the high season, when the 'grey' travelers(retired couples escaping the cold of the south in the winter)invades the north.
Just before sunset I walked down the path to the beach. Right before my eyes lay a beach, with light blue water and a blend of white sand and shells as far as the eye could see.
The morning after we picked shells from the beach, in every shape and colour, after witnessing a rare solar eclipse in the morning. Even though we only stayed for a night, it was a glimpse of paradise after beaches much too traveled by tourists.
