Walking on the beach

Does anyone know how many calories walking and jogging on the beach has?
Its alot harder than walking on normal surfaces because your feet sink into the sand.
Its a very peaceful walking the dog on the beach.

    I think that the amount of calories you burn off depends on a number of variables, your level of fitness, if your reaching your target heart rate ext.

    On hard surfaces you will burn approximately 280 Calories if you walk for an hour and over seven hundred if you run. Because of the softness of the surface the amount of calories you will burn off doing the same exercise on sand will be doubled...[:0]
