Pakistan isn't all mountains, plains and deserts!

This week, we asked our Instagram community to share photos of their favourite beach spots along the country's scenic coastline.

These are our top picks from the many fantastic photos on #DawnWeeklyProject.

1. Go zen: Somiani beach is the perfect place to practice yoga

2. Cast a line: Gwadar is fishing heaven

3. 'Do Darya' is to Karachi what Monal is to Islamabad

4. Skip that trip to the Maldives. Visit Sunehri Beach instead

5. Manora island's long sandy beaches are a great picnic spot, with landmarks worth exploring nearby

6. Combine a low-lying mountain range with the sea and you have picture-perfect 'Cape Mount'
