If you live in an area that is far away from the ocean, when you get a chance to go, you will want to make the most of the opportunity. The ocean is a special place that brings out many different emotions. It is another world. A world that you can explore, but it will always keep most of its secrets from you. The Ocean is a great place to bring kids, there are learning experiences everywhere on the coast. But even for grownups, there are endless things to do that you can’t do at your home. Here are a few things that you can do to make the most of your time at the seaside.

  • Go Whale Watching:If you choose the right location, and the right time of year, whale watching is one of those once-in-a-lifetime things that you and your family will remember forever. There are several locations around Australia where you can watch whales. For example, you can go whale watching in Eden with a seasoned skipper who knows the best locations. Have a quick google to see what areas will have whales during your holidays. This will be an adventure that will make your seaside vacation one you will never forget.
  • Beach Clothes:When you are on the beach different rules apply. You can wear what you like, and those judging eyes from back home will have no effect on your good time. Not only swimwear, but your whole beach ensemble can be something that you can only get away with at the beach.  Get yourself an outfit that says, I’m on holiday, I can do what I like.
  • Relax:This seems like something obvious, but you would be surprised how many people go to the beach and fail to do any relaxing at all. If you really want to unwind, you need to have a good plan. Go with as few people as possible. If you are bringing the kids the relaxing isn’t going to happen. Pick a quiet beach, something not so popular, and make sure you have the things you need to relax. A good book, the right sounds, maybe a special beverage. Whatever it takes. And then be committed to ignoring the rest of the world.

There are other things you can do as well. Get to know the local sights, start a checklist of marine animals for the kids to fill out. And above all let yourself be refreshed by the sea.
