WELLNESS TRENDs


FOREST WALKS: A leisurely stroll through the forest has many health benefits. Between urbanization, multiple hours behind screens and over scheduling, our lifestyles increasingly take us further away from what our ancestors knew - the benefits nature has on our well-being. Taking time to enjoy a forest experience is rising in popularity. 

"It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of the air, that emanation from the old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit." - Robert Louis Stevenson, Forest Notes, 1905


OUR BEACH EXPERIENCE:

Since the 1800's, doctors have recommended a trip to the beach as a prescription for many ailments. The number one benefit is stress relief. Soaking in the sounds of the waves, smell of the salt air, and sight of the sparkling blue water is calming, and helps release stress

Not only is serotonin almost immediately released, (serotonin is a key hormone for relaxation and happiness), but the sound and visuals of the beach and ocean are simply so soothing and peaceful.


At Beachside you'll experience ocean views right from your private unit, enjoy views and sunsets over the ocean from our hottub, or sit right at the waters edge on our huge beach deck for a magical experience.
