Yup, the holidays are awesome. But they can also be purposeful and good for the soul. We earn our days off and work hard all year long so travel should be a sacred experience. A beach holiday, in particular, has its healing powers and a special way of renewing our perspectives. The smooth and crashing waves of the sea and the earthy and salty scents of the sea breeze is magical. We’ve got some reasons why you should spend your weekend at the beach. Going to the beach has a lot of benefits.

Being at the beach helps relieves stress by helping you relax and unplug. More often then not there is terrible cell service, so forget about the worries of the outside world and simply enjoy the sand between your toes and the crashing ocean waves!
- Sand exfoliates the skin
The sand is a natural exfoliate, which rubs away dead skin cells and helps clear pores and acne. People with more serious problems like psoriasis and dermatitis can also benefit from the beach by allowing the sun’s UV rays to dry out psoriasis and the salt to heal dermatitis on the skin
Do you ever just go to the beach to lay down? No! This is a great way to get out and get exercise!
- Sleep better
The breezy air helps to regulate our serotonin levels which cause us to have a better night sleep!
- Release Toxins
The seawater has been proven to help rid the body of harmful toxins as well as stop the growth of fungus
- Boost your mood
A nice swim in the ocean is bound to boost your mood, and continuous use is also helpful in curing depression.
- Heal your cuts
Seawater helps you heal your cuts faster and helps clear them of any bacteria!
- Clean your hair
Seawater is a magical little potion. Not only does it help heal cuts but it also acts as a natural shampoo, which is why your hair feels so dry after coming out!
