The good beach life


I didn’t think of myself as a beach person till i went to Naxos, Greece last summer. For the first time in my life i was able to enjoy the beach life. haha. Wake up early in the morning to see the sun cast its many colours on the water followed by a yoga session on the beach then some breakfast at a tavern facing the sea. Then go to the beach and lie down, read a book if mood be or just lie down with thoughts or even blank. By now the sun is getting warm. good idea to take a dip in the ocean and laze in the water for an hour or so. When i come back i find a refreshing drink mostly iced coffee or watermelon juice waiting on the table next to my beach chair. Its time for lunch, omg i could live on the greek salad and feta cheese but there are many seafood preparations waiting so i eat some salad and then try the other greek dishes. My tummy is hurting because of food overdose and all i am good for now is sleep. So i go back to the apartment and sleep in till its about 5. Take bath post wake up, put on a breezy outfit and head to the beach to see the sun again cast its many colours on the water. Be amazed by the different shades of yellow and red and how the shades differ from sunrise to sunset. I have a drink for company and now music from the many taverns and clubs lined up on the beach begins to enter my ear. A dance on the beach barefoot is the feeling and after an hour or so of doing that i stuff my mouth with some yummy food, drink some more wine at a tavern and then walk some on the beach letting the evening breeze play with my hair. Its time to call it a day and sleep with no dreams, no dreams is a good idea to me. The next day repeat.

That was my schedule in Naxos that made me fall in love with the beach. When going on a beach holiday its best to pack little as mentioned in my post on Beach holiday essentials. Also worth adding to the list is a kaftan and a robe. A towel + changing robe sounds most practical. Perfect for swimmers, triathletes, surfers and watersports enthusiasts who need to change out of their wet gear and also for beach lovers.  I missed having something under which i could remove my swimsuit whilst preserving my modesty in public. Wide sleeves help to move freely or  remove arms from the sleeves to adjust the gear underneath the robe. Ideal for changing indoors or outdoors in spring and summer.
Some people like to have the who cares attitude while changing in public but somehow i can’t bring myself to do it in the open even if everybody else is doing the same. Lol!!

  6. You do look amazing. I don't really go on beach holidays because I really live close to the beach. But we do go out to the beach a couple of times a year. Or at least we used to.

  7. I have not been on a beach holiday in Greece but Naxos sounds idyllic. My favorite beach holiday is where I can see and smell the ocean, not necessarily swim in it but at least be close enough to walk to the water's edge. Hopefully with some fishing boats to get fresh catch of the day for lunch :)

  9. I love the photos and beach life in general. I wish I'd live somewhere where you can actually enjoy those turquoise water all year long. In Finland 80% time is too cold and the beaches are not that gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your tips for beach life. :)

  11. Beautiful pictures and what an amazing view! I was exactly like you until I went to the Maldives six years ago. Nothing can come close to how that trip changed my perception of a beach vacation. I enjoy them now too and I can't wait to visit Greece.

  15. I'll admit I'm not much of a beach holiday'er but I think they are definitely needed from time to time. I've never heard of the towel/robe before this post but it sounds like a must-add accessory for my next vacation!

  16. Amazing post share! As the continuous rise in water level, due to the fact the glaciers are melting, is taking a toll on the beachfront forest. The water is taking over and the trees have less foundation to plant their roots, and that is why we see daily new fallen tree trunks at the beach.
