Everyone has a place where they go to escape all the pressures and worries of life. There is always that one spot that can mellow all your problems and soothe troubles in times of stress. For me, the beach is the ultimate cure to all of my problems. While I am there, all of my obligations suddenly vanish.

As I stroll along, I can feel the soft smooth sand beneath my feet. As I take in the soothing atmosphere that encircles me, I close my eyes, letting myself absorb the warming rays of the sun on a perfect summer day. I am comforted by the sounds of the ocean; the rhythmic pounding of the waves represses all of my concerns. I look into the cloudless blue sky and see the perfection of life.

On the other hand, if serenity is not your desire, other parts of the beach are full of exciting sights, sounds, and smells. The waves at the beach continuously crashing into the shore give a blissful feeling, but looking a little closer you see surfers hanging ten, or children splashing around near the shore. The smell of the salt in the air is another unique comfort of the beach. Many fun opportunities await at the beach, consisting of boating, sailing, parasailing, and a plethora of other activities available to casual beachgoers.

Regardless, beach’s most alluring feature has to be simply lying in the sand while soaking up the sun. On a hot summer day where else would anyone rather be but the beach with the water, the sun, and all the activities that are happening, or just to hang out with family and friends. The beach’s sights, smells, and sounds unlike any other place on earth. Every summer over a billion people flock to the beaches for their unique experience. Where else would you rather be?
