Why The Beach Makes Us Happy

I recently read this article in Coastal Living Magazine. In the article doctors in the fields of Biology, Neuroscience, and Psychology discuss their theories about why the beach makes us happy. These Scientists are studying the positive affects that the beach and the ocean have on you and me.

The article goes on to state the obvious reasons that we love going to the beach for vacation are: its beauty, we can control our day, restful sleeping, walks, reading, and eating fresh food. It is certainly true that we can do what we want to do on vacation as opposed to what we have to do. You can have both if you live on Hilton Head Island. Here you can hear the soothing soft continuous sounds of the waves coming ashore or those of the local wild life communicating in nature. Isn’t it great to take off your shoes and wiggle your toes in the sand? There is something about the smell of salt in the air. At the end of the day you experience a good tired feeling; a satisfied tired feeling.


We can play with our children and grand children. We can listen to their dreams and plans for the future. It’s a place where several generations have so much in common. It’s a place where we can make so many pleasurable memories. Memories that can not be replaced are priceless. It is a place where time slows down just a little. “It’s a place where you can allow yourself just to be.”

There is something about the ocean that can be almost hypnotic. It goes on forever with such mystery of what is in it and who has traveled it. It is a cause for wonder. Beautiful Dolphins coming in to feed are a sight to behold in the late afternoon and sunsets seem more glorious over the ocean at the end of the day. You can experience these joys living at or by the beach on Hilton Head Island.

Hilton Head is Paradise

Hilton Head Island is located off the cost of South Carolina.

It’s a mixture of the north, south and the islands. We call it Paradise with a Unique Lifestyle. When you come to visit you’ll see why. The island is a barrier island that is 12 miles long and 5 mile wide. It is actually a forest preserve that is covered with beautiful vegetation. There are Tall Pines and Tropical Palms. There are lovely flowers all year round. There are sparkling harbors, marinas with beautiful blue waters and wonderful sunsets. There are peaceful parks and pristine white beaches. The Climate is Semi Tropical. The average day time temp is 75 degrees, the average ocean temp is 69 degrees, and the average rain fall is 4.12”.

It has been said that Hilton Head Island is the best destination for a Memorial Holiday getaway. It is one the Healthiest Ocean and Lake Communities in the continental United States. Beautiful weather, wonderful outside activities and scrumptious dining are indicative of this lovely life style.
It is really one of the best small towns that offer’s, year round, every amenity to its residents and guests. There is so much to do and enjoy: 23 Golf courses, Tennis, Theater, Restaurants, Art, Shopping, Fishing, Biking, Kayaking, Entertainment, Sailing and of course the 12 miles of beach. Families come back year after year. When their children grow up they bring their children. Wonderful memories are formed. We have a great St. Patrick’s Day Parade, several cultural festivals during the year. We even make snow one day in the park, just in case anyone is missing it.
