A beach can be a place to escape. It’s a refuge for many. The rolling waves can be chaotic and calm. A haven for people just waiting to be discovered.

These beach life quotes may just inspire you to get on your feet and pack your sunscreen. I personally love reading beach quotes, I mean who doesn’t? They trigger some kind of happy hormones from remembering your past beach trips, if not, beach quotes make me want to mark my calendar for the next vacation.

The best medicine for anything aching is vitamin SEA. Notice how the beach can just cure all broken things. When we are sad, lonely, brokenhearted, bored, confused and guilty, we just want to feel the sand brushing against our feet while the waves are slowly washing it away. The salty air is somehow relieving. Just staring at the horizon while it just nonchalantly fading away into a fireball and dispersing its tint like paint in a canvass.
But funny how the beach can drown your sorrows, it can also uplift you at the same time. The solitude of the shore shows a perfect reflection of your self and you will just realize that the world is deeper and bigger than you.
