Nothing compares to the sensation of cold sand beneath your toes and the sound of breaking waves on an appealing beach as you near the end of a long Friday workday from the confines of your boring office cubicle.

For some of us, that is an easy fix; we can just get in the vehicle and drive or take a brief road trip to the next sunny seashore, but for the others who are landlocked, our fancies may be the best we can go until our next beach holiday is planned.

And, given the year we’ve had collectively, we might all benefit from the stress-relieving effects of a day at the beach. However, for those who are unable to visit the beach at the moment, take a moment to browse through these beach quotes and enjoy some well-earned relaxation.
