Mums know why a beach holiday is so good for you. Playing on the beach can benefit your health in many ways. Swimming is good for the heart, seawater is good for the skin, and the sun is revitalizing and good for building the immune system. Not only does the beach have physical benefits, but there is increasing evidence to suggest that if you want a healthy, revitalising, and relaxing break for you and your family, you should think about choosing a holiday stay at the seaside. The beach will leave you feeling fit and refreshed, unlike many other breaks that leave you frazzled and needing a holiday from the holiday!
