I have always been a true blue beach bum by heart (Okay I absolutely love the Jungles too). But, to stay on topic – I love the beach. Period.
Give me a sun bed, a beer and a book – I can just lay there like a crocodile all day long – I am not kidding! Okay, well, maybe a couple of beers – Burp!
Now, why do I love being close to water so much, you might wonder? Well, here’s my personal view and top 10 reasons why I head to the beach every chance I get.
10 Reasons Why I love the beach
Water sports/activities – Being close to the sea means you can enjoy an array of water sports and activities like – surfing, jet ski, kayaking, boat trips, snorkeling, deep sea diving and so much more. These activities not just keep you fit but form a major part of your vacation.
Chilling Factor – Beer on the beach , chill music at the shacks , sound of waves – all adds to the chilling factor of a beach destination.
Beach Parties – Beach parties are my favorite – I would rather shake a leg on a beach than in a club (Well, a club close to the beach works well for me too – lol). Places like Krabi, Boracay, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Ibiza, Koh Rong – all make for excellent beach party locales.
Catch of the day – I am a big foodie so being close to the sea means one thing – SEAFOOD! Enjoy fresh seafood at the beach shacks and don’t miss the “Catch of the Day“.
Calming effect – Walking on sand & watching the waves has an extremely calming effect on me. In that very moment, just looking over the waves, I seldom forget everything and just savor the moment. Sunsets – Ahhh the amazing sunsets at the beach. Just watching the sun go down over the sea is simply breathtaking. It is also a great time for self refection and introspection.
Stunning views – I am a sucker for palm trees dotting the horizon – That’s the view I want to wake up to everyday.
Beach Umbrellas – Oh the colorful beach umbrellas are super adorable. Give me a chance and I will probably work under a beach umbrella at my home – But then, I would rather blog from a beach paradise instead.
Photosessions – Beach, sea, waves, palm trees, sunsets – all make for excellent back drops for your awesome photos. It’s no wonder that my camera is out of my bag as soon as I hit the beach.
Laid back life – Bike around small beach towns and enjoy their ever calm and laid back lifestyle. Coming from a big metropolitan, I crave for this peace and tranquility without any pressure to win the rat race. It’s just the entire aura which makes you let go and relax.
Friendly people – Now if you have ever been to a beach town Vs a big metro city, you would know exactly what I am talking about. People living in/around the sea are much more friendly and I know why – if you have 10 reasons to love where you live, you would be smiling too – I know I would.
