A natural arch, cut through the rock by the action of waves. 3 Cliffs Bay, Gower Peninsula

A headland showing a stack where a wave cut arch has collapsed. Dingle Bay, Co.Kerry.

Worm's Head, Gower Peninsula. A headland showing a large natural arch and, at its outer end, a stack.

The level tops of the cliffs at Rhossili, Gower Peninsula, are clear evidence for an earlier, higher sea level.

When the tide is out at 3 Cliffs Bay you can walk beyond the 3 cliffs on golden sand. When the tide is in...

Many of our shores are littered with wreckage and remnants. This old anchor lies on a Welsh beach.

Two views of Southport Pier. Many seaside towns have piers, built during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of them are now in a poor state of repair and need to undergo serious repair and refurbishment.

Stacks, formed where the sea has eroded through softer parts of a headland are particularly common in limestone coastlines such as her on the famous Isle of Capri, in southern Italy

These stacks, also in Capri, still have a small connection to the mainland. In the foreground of this picture you can clearly see a precipitous coastal walk with its flights of steep steps.

Because they have been cut open by erosion, cliffs are good places to see the structures of the rocks. Here, on the Greek island of Zakynthos, you can clearly see the way that the rocks are formed from layers (or "beds") which were laid down on the floor of some ancient sea and later tilted by earth movements.

Just a little further along the coast are these natural arches, where slightly softer rock has been worn through by the action of waves. These could eventually collapse leaving stacks.
