There’s something life giving about being by the sea. The incessant roar of the waves, the relentless march of the tide, that gust of sea air that is so invigorating and the glint of sunshine on the ocean swell is incomparable. Noise isn’t normally relaxing, but the thunder of the surf really is.

The coast simply has a magnetic pull, and all of the above combine to make the ultimate de-stresser. People use the coast for myriad activities: surfing, kiteboarding, windsurfing, coasteering, rockpooling, swimming, bodyboarding, paddling, sandcastle making and just plain having fun. Whatever you’re doing, whether it’s lazing in the sun, walking your dog, throwing a frisbee or just the supreme romance of walking on the shoreline with the one you love, it’s just great.

I love that chilled out beach vibe, and I love that we live on an island with an incredible, uninterrupted coastline that is mind blowing in its beauty. Don’t live near the coast? Well in the United Kingdom, it’s really not that far away…
