The Many Health Benefits of a Beach Vacation

January 07, 2019

Scientific research increasingly bears out what many of us have long realized: spending time at the beach boosts health and happiness. As running aficionados know, a jog along the shore means not just a gorgeous and inspiring view, but a more ergonomic running surface that puts less stress on joints and activates the small stabilizing muscles of the foot in ways that concrete or cement simply can’t. Taking a dip in the warm saltwater exposes your skin to mineral combinations with special exfoliating properties, and exposure to sunlight helps promote vitamin D production, which is essential for strong, healthy bones. Just be sure not to get too much sun. About 20 minutes a day of direct sunlight is all you need. Beyond that, you should apply quality sunscreen so you can work gradually on your tan without causing any long-term damage. At the Manchebo Beach Resort, our friendly and expert staff are eager to help you relax and refresh yourself on Aruba’s breathtaking white sand shores. Join us today, and let us show you the real meaning of luxury in the Caribbean.
