10 Reasons You Should Live By The Sea

I've suddenly grown to appreciate living just a stone's throw away from the beach. Often we find ourselves becoming numb to our surroundings, but this is one thing I look forward to. Whether it's a drive down after a long day at work, a moment to feel the waves leap up to my ankles or a quiet spot to drink coffee - I know exactly where to go.

It's the perfect escape

If you're feeling down and wanting to get away for an hour or so, the beach is the perfect escapism. It doesn't matter if you're alone or with a group of friends, you can get away from the manic streets and stresses of home.

You feel free as a bird

You won't feel claustrophobic anymore, the open space is one which you cannot help but fall in love with.

The salty sea air

Nothing beats the wind blowing through your hair and the fresh salty air greeting your face. After a walk on the sand, you feel so much more at peace and happy.

The sounds

The sound of the waves crashing on a windy day, the sound of families, the sound of dogs running across the sand, the sound of birds, the sound of pebbles being walked upon and the sound of nature doing it thing.

Free swimming

Let's be honest, I don't go swimming in the sea that often. I can barely paddle with my tiny feet for more than a minute but hey, swim until you're heart's conten - it's free.

The beach isn't just for summer

Taking a visit anytime of year is something special. The beach can be wonderful when it's just you wrapped in a scarf accompanied by miles of lonely sand but a summers day with happy people is pretty great to.

Bored? Let's go to the beach...

If you live in the countryside it can be a struggle to find things to do but when there's a beach just around the corner - how can you complain? It's a place you can never tire of.

BBQs are awesome, and so are picnics

When the evenings grow warmer, BBQs and picnics are a favourite. It's a great way to bring people together, especially if a beach is involved...


Get your camera ready because nothing quite beats a sunset disappearing behind the horizon.

Life's a beach

Once you experience living so close to the beach, how could you go back?
