Waterfall vs Beach ... I prefer Waterfall! I wont choose beach since i hate sunburns. I love waterfall, the cold water, trees surrounding that waterfall area and the sound of the water flowing... it's so relaxing. How about you?

I like waterfalls and my favorite is Crystal Cascades in Queensland, Australia. There are many cool pools to bathe in and water to have a refreshing shower under. However I must say that I prefer to spend time on palm fringed beaches with gently waving palm trees. I enjoy the sound of the waves softly splashing and feel of a gentle sea breeze. I adore going snorkeling to see colorful coral and friendly fish.

Sound interesting. I'm not sure about other countries but i think it's hotter here (Malaysia). Walking under the sun along the seashore can make your skin badly sunburned.

I have got sun burnt skin in Hawaii because I went to sleep on a palm fringed beach. I was wearing sun cream though. New Zealand has climate that gives sun burn more easily than my home country. Samoa has some gorgeous looking waterfalls. You would love it there. I have been to Malaysia and it was hot there.

Yes, it's really hot here (Malaysia) . It's even hotter at island or beaches area.

I love both, almost as equally.The picturesque sight of the Falls and its surroundings are awesome. Taking some interesting photos of both the falls and the beach will always spark interesting dialogs.For you to have a little more enjoyment at the beach, you have to protect yourself with appropriate anti sunburn protection

It's not only the sunburns issue. I don't like the salty seawater.But it's nice to spend time at beach during sunset. Tq WallyB123

It is diffcult to make a comparison. A waterfall has its own beauty and a beach has its own. It is very good to be by the side of a waterfall. The roaring sound of the waterfall is really unique and good to go very close to it. The beauty os the beach is something differnt, it is unique in a different sort of way.

Yes i understand. There will be a time in where we want to spend our time walking on white sandy beaches and a time when we need to see the green scenery and listen to the roaring sound of the waterfall. Depend on our mood.

i prefer waterfall too. i think it is more natural than beach. Also, i am not very well in swinmming. so i'd like to watch, hear and feel waterfall rather than walk along the beach.

Me too. After swimming for a while, I will rest under a tree and watch others having fun in the water .

I also prefer waterfalls than the beach though i love the sand. But it is much safer because you cant get more sunburn if you swim the whole day. beside you can drink the water lols. Not like in the beach the water is too salty:)

Thanks for your comment markroderick.One more thing, Salty seawater makes our skin itchy. That's why we have to rinse ourselves afterwards.

I love waterfalls, too. I have been to waterfalls and I really love the experience and the feeling being with nature. It soothes and relaxes me. It's a very nice place for family gathering and unwinding. Good day!

I enjoy going to the beach and just sitting there and enjoying the silence all around. But I think I would like the water fall more. Just the sound of the flowing water is indeed a pleasure to hear. I get a chance to go to the beach very often but there are no waterfalls around and have to wait once a year to go on a holiday and enjoy the waterfalls.
