You can sit by the seashore and let the gentle touch of the sea breeze caress your soul, or sip a cup of tea and enjoy the picturesque views of the surrounding areas.

For fitness and running enthusiasts, a run down the paved track will be a mood-lifter. But undoubtedly the most exciting activity to partake at the beach is kite flying; especially when the wind is blowing in your direction. In the end, you can head back home after watching the sun set in the horizon over the vast ocean.
