Huatulco Life was inspired by people with a passion for Huatulco and the Mexican lifestyle. It is a place to find out more information about the region and enjoy the beauty of the Oaxacan coastline through the photo gallery. From time to time, other interesting tidbits about Mexico make their way into the pages of this blog. Enjoy!

Why Do People Love the Beach?

I have often thought about this.  After all, the beach, or sand is nothing more than crushed up rock and coral.  Why do so many people search far and wide for the best beaches?  Why do many people choose beach destinations for their holidays? 

Here are my top 10 reasons why people love the beach.

1) Beaches are associated with warm, tropical destinations

2) Beaches are a great place to people watch

3) Beaches are connected with large bodies of water where you can enjoy water sports such as snorkeling, surfing, jet skiing, etc.

4) Beaches are a great place to relax and let go of the daily stresses of life

5) Beaches are often associated with great child hood memories of travels to exotic destinations

6) It's free!

7) The sound of water lapping against the shore

8) Finding that perfect secluded beach all to yourself

9) There is nothing quite like a beach party BBQ

10) ...because it's the best place to work on your tan!

Why do you love the beach so much? 

Have a great weekend...we hope you spend it on the beach.
