The BEACH BOOK is an indispensable pocket guide to Beach Flora – from seaweeds, up the dunes to the forest line.

Ideal for reference whist walking on the beach.

No excuses now as you feast over the pages covering dune scrub, grasses, the colourful marguerite, vygies, gazania, creepers and the magnificent coastal aloes. Trees species include renowned Natal wild banana, the beautiful coast red-milkwood, the Natal guarrie and the lagoon hibiscus.

Seaweeds covers an exciting range found in the sub-tidal fringe (below low water spring tide), through lower, mid and upper Inter-tidal zones to high water spring tide.

Commonly found green, brown and red seaweeds are included.  There is no doubt that one will obtain great pleasure identifying seaweeds whilst balancing on the edge of a pool.
