avec son sable blanc et ses cocotiers de carte postale.

English sentence - one of Guadeloupe's most beautiful beaches with its postcard white sand and coconut trees.

 

Kwiziq answer - l'une des plus belles plages de Guadeloupe avec son sable blanc et ses cocotiers de carte postale.

 

Why is ‘de carte postale’ used with cocoiters (coconut trees) and not sable (sand)? The English sentence uses postcard white sand, not post card coconut trees

Hi Shak, 

Not sure if I have understood your question correctly but just as postcard applies to both  white sand and coconut trees, in the English sentence, in the French one, 'de carte postale' does too, and is just placed after the nouns it refers to instead of before.

Bonne Continuation !
