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
Living on a tropical island with palm fringed trees is everyone’s dream, isn’t it? However, I love the beach because of how it makes me feel, rather than the aesthetic factor (though it adds to that wonderful feeling). I have no idea why do people like the beach, I am sure everyone has their own reasons but for me, here’s what matters –
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.
Beer on the beach , chill music at the shacks , sound of waves – all adds to the chilling factor of a beach destination.
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“.
Walking on sand & watching the waves has an extremely calming effect on me and surely one of the top reasons I love beach life. 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.
I am a sucker for palm trees dotting the horizon – That’s the view I want to wake up to everyday.
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. I love beaches and anything to do with them as you can see.
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 vibe
Bike around small beach towns and enjoy their ever calm and laid back lifestyle. Coming from a big metropolitan city, 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.
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.
So, now you have 10 reasons why I love the beach but are you a beach bum like me too? Do you like the beach as much as yours truly? Say yay and state your reasons in comments below.
