There’s something about beach holidays. They set you free. Although I’m more of a mountain lover, I can’t resist the ecstasy the beaches offer. I believe everyone should experience beaches once in a while. There’s so much within you that needs to be unlocked, and I guess beaches tickle the inner child in you and let you loose.
As the New Year is around the corner, I’m sure all of you must be planning to go somewhere or the other. So, let me gear you up for a ‘beachy’ destination –
Beach holidays are fun.
I know I’m stating the obvious, but I want to stress on the point that a beach destination sets something right in you. Beaches have the ability to extract the ‘true’ you.
Beaches mean relaxation.
The moment you think of a beach, you think of relaxation. Reclining under a shack with your feet up and feeling the wind in your hair… Is there anything better than that?
Beaches mean ‘do-nothing’.
Yes, beaches mean lazing around. You don’t have to have things on your mind, or a check-list to complete. You can read, talk, gaze or sleep, and it’d possibly be your happiest day!
A stroll or a run by the beach is therapeutic.
Strolling or running by a beach is one of the most carefree activities. It helps you leave behind your stress and simply surrender to the joy of the tides. Besides, there are so many water sports that you can enjoy.
Beaches stir up romance.
Wouldn’t you agree that when you are with your sweetheart at a beach, the love just gets better? If you ask me, it feels like life is an endless poetry.
Beaches are a ‘solo traveller’s best buddy.
I don’t think you can ever feel lonely at a beach. In fact, a beach vacation gives you an excellent chance to rendezvous with yourself and get a little pensive.
Beaches are a great way to connect with your family.
Beaches are not just good for romance and solo time, but they are ideal for a family time too. How about some unhindered time with your mom, dad and siblings?
It’s great to watch sunrises and sunsets from a beach.
Watching the sun rise from the horizon or fade away in the sky is simply incredible. But, I have a special fondness for sunrises. While I have watched several beach sunsets, I’m yet to witness a sunrise from a beach.
Beaches are beautiful.
As a photographer, I’d say beaches make the best photographs. A beach may look very plain in the first instance, but as you give it some time and soak in its air, there are a thousand possibilities that you can capture through your camera.
Beaches are a writer’s favourite escape.
I’d definitely like to run away to a beach to write. I can picture myself with my laptop under a shack – just my heart, my thoughts and my writer’s ink.
What about you? Do you have a ‘beach holiday’ in the pipeline?
