What is a cliff or rocky beach?
Those beaches that are composed of smaller particles are described under the chapter about sand beach ecology. In this chapter about cliff and rocky beach ecology we tell you about beaches that are comprised of stones and larger material and we go up the beach as far as the sea spray reaches and as deep as there is enough light for algae to grow.
