I Enjoy Watching Waves Crash Onto the Beach

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 17,114 People

    I live in Singapore and on my 16th birthday,

    I spent it on a beach at Sentosa and just stood there for hours not saying or doing anything, just enjoying the breeze and listening to the waves. The view was breathtaking. And after dinner, I went back and stayed a little longer. I never wanted to leave. It's... Addicting.

    I cannot wait for summer!

    I do not do winter very well. I have a CD of wave sounds that I play every night so I can go to sleep imagining myself laying on the beach soaking up the sun!

    It's the most calming thing.

    I could sit and watch the waves, smell the salt air and just get lost in the moment, time passing by unnoticed.

    I love standing in the ocean

    where the waves come crashing through and around my legs and end hitting the sandy shore. There's not a better feeling.

    Late in the afternoon

    when the tide comes in. Sitting watching the sea, it's eternal caress. Feeling it nibble at my toes.

    Spending time at the coast is more healing

    for me than months of therapy! The rhythmic crashing of the waves restores my homeostasis. The spray of the water washes over my spirit. The observance of the shear power & size of the ocean brings me back into a place if humility & grace. I always leave my time in Poseidon's...

    Midwest. We have lakes I like to go to, but that can't possibly compare to the ocean. I really do love being near water. It is like a beautiful living being. Always changeing, moving, whispering, or shouting. My dream is to once see the ocean. This might be why I...

    I get a selfish pleasure in knowing

    that I'm the only who ever saw that wave, that moment, that ocean right then. No one else can ever remember what I saw, what I felt. It's my secret.

    I love the beach. Walking along the Quai Rauba

    Capèu. Renewed. Above the sands, wearing my favourite bikini, the sun kissing my body. Older men looking, younger men smiling. Off, in the sea the waves playing their tune.

    Beaches are usually fun places,

    but somewhat less so when there’s no surf and the water’s calm and flat. Add waves though, and things become much more interesting…

    Whenever I feel I'm in a state of anxiety,

    I picture my family and myself on a warm beach, under an umbrella, watching the pull and push of a crystal blue tide. I smell sweet grass, salt and sand in the air. Birds are not far away waiting for a few crumbs and dipping in and out of the water. And people are enjoying...

    this afternoon. Probably more the sound that lulled me to sleep, there's still something deeply serene and spiritual watching the churning water in this lake.

    The ocean is so beautiful.

    I love taking walks on the beach for hours. I enjoy picking up sea glass and sea shells. I love hearing the sound of the ocean. I love watching the sunset with the colorful rays lighting up the sky.

    The deep rich shade of blue,

    the mystery within, just like his eyes. The blue itself will rise and fall, only to find it self washed away along the shore. Most of its depths are unexplored. Just like him. The Sea and a Boy

    It always has a calming effect on me.

    In the summer you can sit and watch. Especially early morning or late at night. I've even fallen asleep on a beach in Portugal doing just that!

    You sit there, on the side of the sea.

    You are alone, you are just with yourself and the sea. The sea and the waves that crumple against the beach, against the rocks, against yourself and they wash everything...the wash your soul

    Lost to the sound of the crashing waves.

    ......as I lose my self watching the lap the shore over and over, caught up in their trance over me, I let my mind wonder away.....

    I can never wait for summer to come

    so that I can be back at the beach every other weekend it's so peaceful and so serene just a sit in my beach chair watching the water and listening to it while tons of people are there I'm in my zone. I want to retire in a place near the water.

    Soft sand, palm trees swaying

    as far as the eye can see. It is night; everything is cool. Full moon out and glimmering over us. Hand in hand with my bf, barefoot, our toes digging into the sand. Wearing nothing but large fuzzy sweater shirt, reaching to my knees. Watching waves crash onto the beach so...

    I have always been a beach lover.

    I love the sand in my toes and the sounds of the ocean. I was always down the beach at night, walking the sands in the moonlight as it was reflected off the crashing waves. It was then that I felt most peace in the world. I still do it now, we would go to Lake Windermere and...

    There is something about sitting on a beach

    looking out over the water, listening to the waves crash against the rocks on the beach. The powerful sound of something so light and so fluid hitting with such force is both mesmerizing and awe inspiring and yet can induce the most peaceful sensation. A friend and I once stood...

    I remember being in Cabo San Lucas on the

    Pacific side, you could hear the waves crashing every night. It was so peaceful. One morning the waves were so big they were swelling 100' past the beach ridge line! It was so cool to see!

    where I will sit and listen to the sea. The power of Nature, and the transcience of mankind is seen in the ubiquitous nature of the ocean.

    I have never felt so alive.

    Peace in turbulence..Serenity. Especially during sunsets. A moment when you are freed from all your thoughts, your pains, worries. Sitting there idly, with a smile on your face, watching the waves smile back at you... feeling closer to oneself. Like speaking without a voice...

    and watching the waves crash along the shoreline rejuvenates me. I come back feeling recharged.
