Sun, Sea and Sand: Elements of a Perfect Holiday
There are a number of different "types" of holidays out there - from the excursion geared towards activity enthusiasts to the getaway suited especially for those seeking a bit of relaxation. While, there are different destinations which offer both - the best has to be one which involves none other than sun, sea and sand. The idea of a "perfect" holiday is undoubtedly different for every person; but with everything a seaside holiday has to offer - from a relaxing setting to a variety of options for activities - why wouldn't you pack your bags and head for the shore?

For the water sport enthusiast, a seaside holiday is truly ideal. Choose from canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, jet skiing, snorkelling, swimming, and fishing, among a number of other exciting options. On a beach break, vacationers can also embark on learning how to sail or maybe going on a guided boat tour; and for those who prefer land activities rather than entering the sea, why not go horseback riding along the beach, hiking in nearby hills to get to fabulous views, and most seaside vacation locations provide golfing facilities and even, on occasion, champion courses? And, of course, there is always the option to take in the tranquillity of the surroundings while doing nothing except lazing on the beach. Loll on the sand and listen to the waves crash upon the shore, or if that is not enough, maybe having an extra special treat with a spa retreat which is guaranteed to melt away the pressures of everyday life, could be the ideal solution. No matter what types of activities are chosen for a seaside holiday, almost everyone is guaranteed to come away feeling rested, refreshed, and renewed.

When it comes to accommodation, there are plenty of fantastic hotels and resorts to choose from throughout Europe and beyond - many of which are situated directly along the shore, to prevent vacationers the chore of having to walk even the shortest of distances. Imagine waking up to the sound of waves crashing gently on the shore, or to a view of the brilliant sun glistening upon the sea; such a serene setting is an invitation for anyone to unwind.

Many hotels frequently offer holiday package deals to include activities for individuals and groups alike - from guided outdoor tours and family-oriented activities to spa retreats within the hotel. So whether travelling alone, as a couple, or with family or friends, there are always a number of terrific deals available which can be found and tailored to requirements with little effort.

The seaside holiday holds a wealth of options in terms of activities to partake in; but with its dusky setting, it also offers every holiday-goer an opportunity to fulfil his or her idea of absolute relaxation. It's therefore no wonder that the sea has always been - and still is - the ultimate holiday destination for people looking for a break from their normal lives.
