There’s something special about the time spend on the beach. It simply moves differently. People are more relaxed, they smile more. Maybe it’s because they’re on vacation or maybe there’s simply something magical about this places.

Some people prefer the mountain, whether it’s sunny or snowy. The fresh air, the lakes and the crystal rivers have their own charm. Besides, if you’re a winter sports’ fan, the mountain will definitely be your first choice. Nature is beautiful, regardless of our preferences. However, the sound of the waves hitting the shore, the salty air, and the soft sand somehow remain romantic and eternal.

The sunsets and the sunrise look and feel different when you’re on a beach sipping on one of your favorite cocktails. It’s like you’re surrounded only by good vibes that make it impossible not to relax and switch to “vacay mode”.

If you’re looking for something to take you back to those warm summer days, check out our collection of cute beach quotes.
