Weighing up the options for your next family holiday? There are a number of fun and exciting options to choose from, but nothing quite beats a coastal holiday.
We know we might be a bit biased, but here are some of the reasons why seaside vacations top the rest.
Discovering new restaurants and dishes is one of the best parts about traveling in general, but there’s nothing quite like tucking into fresh seafood when you’re right near the ocean. Coastal restaurants have perfected their seafood dishes, so you can generally expect the very best from these establishments. Check out Tripadvisor’s Seafood Restaurants in Dumfries and Galloway.
2. Time with People You Love
One of the best ways to spend time with people you love is to get away from it all. This doesn’t mean you can’t pick a coastal location that has things to do, but seaside accommodation is usually located away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This is why it’s the ideal place to spend quality time with the people you love. Coastal Kippford is the perfect example of this.
3. The Water Works Wonders for Skin Problems
Seawater is incredibly healing, especially for your skin. If you suffer from psoriasis and eczema, spending time in the ocean can have a positive effect. This is thanks to the mineral content of the water. And there’s no better way to get a natural pedicure than by taking a stroll on the beach.
4. It Enhances Your Mental Wellbeing
When you spend time at the ocean, you automatically switch off and really start to relax. When you’re away from the stresses of everyday life and don’t have to stick to a demanding to-do list, you can truly recharge. By the time you get back home, you will feel more peaceful and motivated.
5. There are Activities for Everyone
Whether you just want to laze on the beach and catch a few rays or you want to go surfing or try your hand at fishing, a seaside holiday has you covered. Coastal locations are brimming with outdoor activities for all preferences and ages, so you’ll never be hard-pressed for things to do. Here’s a detailed guide on things you can do in and around Kippford.
6. Stunning Scenery
The ocean is beautiful on its own, but it’s also surrounded by other stunning landscapes, making it ideal for those who love to hike or bring their cameras on holiday with them. From peaceful forests to eye-catching crags, there is so much to see and take in.
Where there’s an ocean, there are also quaint coastal towns. When you’ve had your fill of the beach, you’ll have the option to head into town to explore the many shops, cafés, and pubs. Or you can simply stock up on local foods and delicacies and cook up a storm in your holiday accommodation with your family.
