It's the perfect escapeIf 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 birdYou won't feel claustrophobic anymore, the open space is one which you cannot help but fall in love with.
The salty sea airNothing 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 soundsThe 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 swimmingLet'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 summerTaking 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 picnicsWhen 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...
SunsetsGet your camera ready because nothing quite beats a sunset disappearing behind the horizon.
Life's a beachOnce you experience living so close to the beach, how could you go back?
