    I love to watch the swells roll closer to the

    shoreline and become waves and crash into the beach. Of love the sound they make. It is very peaceful

    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 Don't get too many chance to see this in the

    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 Went To The Beach At 14 And Fell In Love!

    I was in foster care at the age of 12 so for my dad and my grandparents to be able to take me from Ohio to North Carolina for a week was an awesome and unprecedented treat! Before we got to the beach my dad had cautioned us about the dangers of the undertow and how choppy the...

    yes I really like beach the waters

    and everything around it... it makes me so relax and sometimes I imagine myself sitting by the seaside watching the sunset with the man I love.

    The beach is always appealing,

    but I didn't really get a beach holiday this year. I went to a beach, in Scotland, but it was far too remote to take off my clothes and laze and swim. I hope to enjoy next summer on the beach, somewhere in the western Mediterranean.

    Late in the afternoon

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

    Especially at night, maybe a campfire in the

    background, a full moon, a bottle of wine, grapes, cheese, meat, crackers...the sounds of the ocean and waves breaking... oh. wait... this should have been in the "I am romantic" experience... but I do love the sound of the waves on the beach... very hypnotic and mesmerizing

    Especially at Finistere,

    or on the Cies Islands near where I live. I look out every morning on the Atlantic rolling into its regular congress with Galicia.

    It Soothes My Mind

    I love the sight of them crashing and it takes my mind away from everything and it is a great way to relax.  I live in an island so I am never far away from them.

    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

    I love going back to Brittany

    and to the beaches, I love the wildness of Finisterre. The islands are tiny pieces of land amid a tumult. I can watch the sea try to claim the space.

    The Power Of The Ocean

    It's amazing watching the waves roll in. It's rather mesmerizing in fact. The power, the strength. The erosion it can cause. But there is beauty as well. You can hear the waves crash as they roll in. The aroma. Even at night you can hear the waves. In the moonlight you...

    It's so calming, one

    after the other after the other. Captivating, and on the exterior, simple. But there's still so much that there is behind that exterior that we don't see. Like the tide and the causes of their size and the currents underneath. Then there are things we don't know like why are...

    I have never felt so alive.

    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…

    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...

    My most memorable beach experience happened in

    Playa Carate, Costa Rica. It is a remote beach near the southern tip of the Osa Peninsula. I remember going there with my girlfriend and being mesmerized by the power of the waves. The breaks were probably 7 to 10 feet tall and the wind whipped up a mix of sea mist and beach...

    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.

    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!

    Watching waves by standing on the sands all I

    could see the empty to the Power Infinity. ... I get lost in a Huge NOTHINGNESS !! When my feet washed by the waves and I am about to fall then I feel reality within. Can't explain what I can't create.

    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 like the smell and the feeling of the breeze

    that it brings too. What I like the most is the sound if it. The song Parasol from the tempest album of Jesse Cook has these sound at the background. I listen the album at night when I can't sleep (or Kenny g etc) and sleep listening to this song.

    I breath in and out as the tide advances

    and recedes. Eventually, I'm swaying as I watch from the shore, all the while my breath synchronized with the ebb and flow of the ocean.

    I miss the beach! Coming here to Paris means I

    can't go to the beach. I used to spend a lot of time on the beach. The sounds come to me in my dreams sometimes, but to go back there I would need some permissions.

    I like to go down to Galveston

    and sit out on the jetty off of the seawall. I like the sound of the waves on the rocks. There usually aren't any big waves but sometimes there are and they crash over the jetty. It looks and sounds cool especially with the spray going up in the air
