5 Benefits of a Holiday at the Beach

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Spending a holiday on the beach is one of the best ways to celebrate. Let's face it: A top benefit of a beach vacation is that it's the ideal place to relax. The beach is the one place you can kick your feet up and not do one single thing. Are you contemplating a beach holiday? If so, here are five reasons you need to get serious about planning that beach holiday.

As I said before, the beach is simply one of the easiest places to relax. Where else can you sit in a chair and soak in all the color that the beach and water have to offer?


When I spend a holiday near the beach, my door or window is cracked all night long. The sounds of the beach are soothing and make it easy to slip into a deep sleep. Keep in mind, many vacation rental companies ask you to turn off your air conditioning unit if you leave your door cracked or open to prevent mechanical issues. Fall temperatures at night make it easy to stay comfortable all night long. 


A holiday on the beach is a quick way to get your vitamin D. Once your skin soaks in the vitamins that it's been lacking, your body responds in a positive way. If you are like me, sunshine immediately lifts your spirit and takes away stress that has been dragging you down. Here is where you do need to use some common sense, though. Be sure to use sunscreen and hang out beneath a beach umbrella for part of the day. It's important to note that too much sun can have the opposite effect.

Reading Books on the Beach

When is the last time you actually had time to read a book? Find a book that you have been wanting to read and head down to the beach. After all, a beach holiday is your holiday, so claim it as yours! Many of us are caught up in the hustle and bustle of our day-to-day lives and forget how relaxing a good book can be.


A beach holiday can be a great way to reconnect as a family. Make time to build a sandcastle or two. Team work is a connecting tool that all families will benefit from when you make time for a beach holiday.

Plan your beach holiday today - determine the dates and make it your holiday. Plan to relax, sleep, get some sunshine, read a good book and enjoy some family fun on your next beach holiday. I can guarantee that you will be happier after you make time to enjoy your next holiday on the beach.
