If you’ve missed out on the holidays that you love so much, you might be wanting to treat yourself to a truly luxurious and relaxing holiday, and what could be more relaxing than a beach holiday? If you’re deciding on where to travel this year, you might be trying to choose between a city break and a beach holiday. In this article, find out just why you should choose a beach holiday over a city holiday this year.

How beach holidays offers the ultimate relaxation

Is there anything as relaxing as the beach? Picture this: the sun beating down on your skin, warming you up, the soft and splashing sound of water lapping, a cooling, fresh breeze. Now doesn’t that sound relaxing? But did you know that there’s a scientific reason why beach holidays can be relaxing? The air by the sea contains tiny droplets of seawater, which have been enriched with salt, iodine and magnesium. When you inhale this enriched air over time, these elements can work to loosen the mucus in your lungs and oesophagus which can help you to breathe much more easily. By being able to breathe properly, it can help you to feel more relaxed.

Perfect for sunshine lovers

If you’re from the UK, you’ll be used to dreary, dull weather and lots of rain! So, when you go on holiday, it’s likely that you want to soak up the sun, and where better to do that on a beach? Beaches are the perfect place to enjoy the sun, and there are many health benefits of getting extra sun. Many of us spend a lot of time indoors, whether it be working in the office or looking after the home, but this means that we don’t always get enough vitamin D. A beach holiday can allow you to spend every day in the sun and, as long as you pack enough sun cream, you are sure to feel the benefits of extra vitamin D. Vitamin D can help to regulate phosphate and calcium, nutrients that work to keep your teeth and bones healthy, and can help you to boost physical and emotional health.
