We all have special holiday moments when we breathe a contented sigh, lower our shoulders and smile because we know our holiday has truly begun.

Here are five key beach moments to help you relax into holiday mode.

The warmth of sunshine on your skin

If you’re coming from a cooler country then chances are it’s been a while since you felt the warm embrace of sunshine and warm temperatures on any skin other than your face and hands. The moment when you lie on a beach and feel the sun caress your entire body is when you know you’re definitely not at home anymore.

The sound of ocean waves

There’s no sound like it, the gentle lapping of waves on a powdery sand beach, it’s what makes the quintessential sound of a beach holiday. Lie back and listen and even with your eyes closed you know it’s time to relax.

The smell of suntan lotion

If you’ve found a suntan lotion you love and stuck with it, then just the merest whiff can take you back to holidays of the past or set you dreaming about holidays of the future. The first time on holiday you flip the lid and apply the lotion all the memories of relaxation from holidays of the past flood over you and set the mood for the holiday to come.

Your first swim in the ocean

Swimming outdoors is one of life’s great pleasures, combining sunshine and warmth with the energy and vitality of the water. The first swim of a holiday can feel like coming home to a place where you are free to play and relax.

Eating outside with the sand between your toes

Sitting under the shade of a takamaka or a palm tree, with sand between your toes and views out across the ocean while you enjoy freshly caught and cooked seafood is one of those moments that reminds you why you love being on holiday in the first place.
