Well, to start with, there are few feelings as reassuring as the sensation of sand between your toes. Every step you take on the beach feels like a massage for both your feet and your soul. Not only does the beach provide a beautiful landscape, but walking is very good for you, and what better place to walk on than a beach?
Beaches have a very distinct salty smell. It’s difficult to describe this smell other than referring to it as that ‘beachy smell’. Like the smell of your favorite meal, the smell of the beach is an instant mood lifter. The roar of ocean waves instantly takes me to my happy place.
Swimming is a major draw as well…I swim like a fish.
Do you ever notice how the sky just seems so much bigger at the beach than it does in towns and cities? Perhaps it is because there aren’t any buildings around to clutter your view. Or that the light reflecting off the ocean horizon appears to give it a bigger dimension.
Viewing the sunrise or sunset at the beach is a magical experience, this is worth going in itself.
The beach is an animal lover’s paradise, I especially love the birds and finding tiny creatures in the wet sand, I also love collecting seashells.
The restaurants adjacent to the beach are the absolute best places to eat.
Hope to see you on a beach soon,
