When the idea of spending time at the beach comes to mind, there’s one particular activity that nearly everyone looks forward to once they land in Khao Lak: walking along the beach. With the sand in between your toes and the waves gently flowing to and fro, it should be no surprise that taking a stroll on the shore is something that you feel yourself craving for nearly every day.

For most people, moving along the coastline with nothing more than bare feet, the sound of waves crashing, and the smell of seawater that make for an unforgettable experience. However, did you know that it’s also a great activity for your health?

Often regarded as a form of exercise for the soul and soles, walking barefoot on the beach can easily prove to be healthy and fun for any beachgoer. Travelers that land in Khao Lak, in particular, enjoy taking a simple stroll on the sand because of all the amazing benefits that are amplified by the Phuket’s own beauty itself!

If you’ve been looking for a great way to enjoy the beach and give your senses a much-needed relaxation experience, here are three reasons you should go for a walk on the beach more often: 

1. Every step is a deeper and more relaxing massage for your soles
No matter how long you spend your time walking by the beach, you’ll always realize that a simple stroll can leave your feet feeling the best they’ve ever been! 

Thanks to the semi-smooth nature of the sand and the properties of seawater, walking along the beach helps with applying various degrees of pressure to your soles, helping to activate both the body’s own lymphatic and venous system. By jumping at the chance to let the sand and seawater work their magic on your feet, you can treat yourself to a free therapeutic experience unlike any other.

2. Taking a small dip helps relieve pressure off of your joints

Aside from being a great form of exercise for the feet, walking along the beach also greatly benefits the body by suspending to the point of relieving the joints of pressure, which is great for long-term health! With the help of the weightlessness that you feel in the buoyancy of seawater, you can help your body relax and ease back into peak condition even after a few minutes of your stroll!

3. More time spent in the sand and seawater means more time for exfoliation
Instead of spending a fortune on expensive treatments and stressful appointments, going to the beach is a great way to enjoy the benefits of free natural exfoliation treatments! Immersing your skin in the friction of the sand helps create micro-movements that generate ample friction to rub out the dead cells from your skin, explaining why your skin is softer after going to the beach!

If you’re looking to give your body a much-needed break and treat it to nature’s cure for bad skin, anxiety, and achy muscles and joints, then head over to the beach!
