There is nothing that makes you smile more than a holiday. Make that a holiday in Plymouth and your smile gets a whole heap bigger! But being by the sea isn’t just a ‘nice’ thing to do…it’s a healthy thing too!

Plymouth is one of the single most beautiful coastal landscapes in the South of England; but it’s also a tonic.

Visiting Plymouth is GOOD FOR YOU. Our city by the sea has several really fantastic benefits to your health and well-being. Here are our top THREE reasons why Plymouth isn’t just a beautiful choice; it’s a healthy one too.

A Great Night’s Sleep…

Being by the sea really helps if you’re a light sleeper or you struggle to fall asleep. The sea air is cleaner and fresher and so with the higher levels of oxygen, it really can improve sleep.

What’s more, studies have proven that it’s not only the sea air, but the sea sounds too. The noise of the ocean is soothing for your brain. So, hearing the waves and the noises of the sea can not only help you relax, but it can help clear your mind, lower stress and strengthen your immune system.

There is also something in appreciating the vastness of the ocean, like the nights sky. It can help put things into perspective; those niggling small worries float away as you gaze in awe at the waves and the horizon.

Plug Into the Ions Not The Iphones…

There is something we should all take advantage of when we are holidaying beside the sea, the negative ions in the air!

Negative ions increase your sense of well-being and mental clarity by removing the debilitating effects of excessive positive ions in your environment. They are often described as a natural antidepressant.

In our every days, we are exposed to so much; computers, television and electronics; we are surrounded by a lot of positive ions. So, when on holiday in Plymouth take an hour without your  phones and gadgets and increase your exposure to negative ions. It will enhance your immune system, increase alertness and improve your concentration.

Beauty Brings Out The Active In You …

Holidaying by the sea is like having the most amazing treadmill! You will just want to walk the coast line and soak up the vista.  Especially here in Plymouth.

When you walk along the World-famous Plymouth Hoe Promenade, it really is quite breath-taking.  There are a number of really amazing walks and cycle routes in and around Plymouth and once you start, you wont want to stop!
