Sun, sea and sand sounds obvious, but it really is the perfect combination. The warmth of the sun and the healing salt water is in my opinion the best way of recovering from hard work.
My favourite time to hit the beach is early morning, when its peaceful and the water is still. There is crispness in the air with just a hint of the heat that will follow. I take a good half an hour stroll in the wash before returning for breakfast in the Veranda. Sani is the perfect place for getting away from the crowds.
There honestly is something special about the sea, wherever you are. It has a way of pausing your thoughts and clearing your mind.
Make sure you make time for a beach day any time of the year, it is worth it, trust me!
