What I love about the beach is the scent of the sea. I love smelling that scent and when I smell it, it makes me feel happy.

What I love most about the beach is the fact that you can be working out (swimming, beach volleyball) and get a tan at the same time πŸ™‚

I love the feeling of hot sand burning my toes. Weird, but I love it! Also, I love how you get a free pedicure after walking around in the sand for a day πŸ™‚

Since i was born in the virgin islands and spent half my life there..
my favorite thing about the beach was everyone coming together.When you go to the beach with friends everyone is laughing and joking and having a great time. Sometimes its not always about the water or the weather.its about the people you are with and thats what makes life happy!

I love my skin when I am at the beach, the golden tone of it, it is so easy to wear make-up at night after a relaxing day by the sea and anything I wear makes me look healthy and sexy at the same time. So all in all, it a place where I feel really good and happy with my body

Hmm…what I love most about the beach is the beautiful scenery that makes you feel at peace and free. It is such a relaxing place to be to enjoy time with family and friends.

What I love the most about the beach is how important things always seems to take place there, creating the best memories ever! Being there with friends at the morning, after a whole night out partying is definetely what I love most about it!

I love about the beach that you can really relax there even if there are loads of other people. I love about the beach that you feel so related to nature. I feel like a mermaid.

What I love most about the beach is that beachy, sea water smell! I am seriously lost without the beach. I grew up right next to it πŸ™‚

I love the smell of the beach and the calmness of the water. The most amazing part is if you can catch a sunset while on the beach – it’s perfect.

I love the feeling of relaxation–the sun shining on my face, sand between my toes… I live in Alaska so when I travel, hitting up the beach is a MUST!

i love the soft sand, the warmth of the sun, the sound of the ocean. i love being there with friends and family, bbqing, and hanging out around a fire. i miss being able to go to huntington beach, lots of great memories from there.

the sound of the waves are so relaxing, and when you hear them even though you are stressed
they just calmed you down.
and when you just sit on the sand you can appreciate how beautiful is the world we live in, you can see the animals that live in it they sky, the earth and the ocean
its a romantic place to be and to connect with yourself

I like the heat and the swimming. I like that you can just lay outside and become enveloped in warmth. And if you get too hot, you just jump in the water.

well i live in hawaii so of course you have to go to the beach, lol. i love going to the beach because it’s a place where you can have fun, not think about work or any negative thoughts. it’s a place where you can relax and get a tan at the same time.
most of the time we have family gatherings it’s at the beach because we don’t want the children to be bored and get into trouble.

*whispers* and can also check the guys out* *giggle* ^_^

I grew up on an island so the beach was a way for us locals to meet up, fellowship, and help us connect with one another. I love how the sound of the waves can bring peace and serenity to me.

What I love most about the beach is that it allows me to relax with a good book, get tanned and people-watch.. all in one!!!! πŸ˜€

What I love most about the beach is the smell of the sea water. The salt in the air is an awesome smell (and really helps my allergies believe it or not). Sinus relief!

I can’t wait for this collection to release already! What I love about the beach is the salty air, the sunshine, all of the activity and walking around half naked!

I love the feel of the sand, the smell of the ocean, and all of the bright colors! Colorful sun umbrellas, bright swimsuits, beach towels of all different colors, and more.

Me gusta la playa, por el mar. Por el ruΓ­do de las olas. Por el sol cuando se fusiona con el mar, creando increΓ­bles colores. Por la sensaciΓ³n agradable de la arena bajo los pies. Por la alegrΓ­a, felicidad y tranquilidad que se respira.

i love getting to wear my bathing suit. living in ontario, we only get a few, really hot, months of summer (so not enough! i hate the snow).

I used to love the beach until I got Vitiligo but when I go to the beach with 3 tons of sunscreen I like the actual sea to be honest. Sand hates me and I hate sand. But the water at a nice clean beach just doesn’t compare to anything else :3 The waves are also pretty awesome too πŸ˜€

I live in Iceland, almost in the sea so I’ve grown up practically on the beach. Even though it’s not very warm here, duh, I just love when my toes sink in the sand and playing with the sea.
When I go abroad I love laying in the sun, swimming in the ocean and playing around. On the beach you can be anyone, just let loose and find your inner child!

I love the wonderful nip in the air.. the sand between my toes… the cool refreshing water… and the gorgeous, stunning sunsets!

I love the sounds, both on hot crowded days and cold, windy days. I love the smell of the ocean air and the taste of salt water on my lips. I love the feel of the sand between my toes and fingers and the waves against my legs. And I used to love how cute dh looked in his lifeguard uniform. πŸ™‚

Hey!!!

What I love most about the beach is the sound of the ocean, its so calming and it always makes me happy πŸ™‚

I retweeted you. please check my twitter out twitter.com/jetleah

What I love the most about the beach is to walk on it, barefoot around 9 p.m, a beautiful sunset with some wind and to feel the hot sand under your feet. So romantic!
Now, I just need a man ^^

I love that when I’m at the beach I have the Best. Hair. Ever. I don’t have to do a thing to it, and it’s shiny, bouncy, and beautiful! Exactly the effect I try to duplicate by buying every single sea salt spray that’s on the market, all to no avail.

Thanks for the chance to win!

what i love the most is the colors, when the sun hits the ocean and it reflects on those crazy sparkles. then you also have the sounds and the smells… and how it’s so warm, not only sun-warm, but you somehow feel warm inside. that’s how freedom tastes like.

I love the beach because of how tranquil the waves and water are. No matter what is going on in life, at the point of watching the water everything goes away and for even just a moment, I am worry free.

Something about the beach just reminds me that the world is beautiful and makes me forget about my problems (at least temporarily). Yes, it’s a stress free zone, the wind… the sun… the sand… the water… everything!

What is there to not love about the beach. The warm sand, water, and the nice breeze. I can never get enough of the beach, and I can’t go a summer without going to the beach. The beach is also in a sense like a fashion show. I love seeing what people wear to beach.

I love the feeling of walking on the hot sand and then digging your toes down until you get to the cold cool sand. Same with the warm sun and cool water.

Well, I don’t live anywhere near a beach unfortunately. =( BUT I have been to the beach only once while I was on vacation. The beach is breathtaking. I absolutely love that it is just so relaxing. Ah hopefully I can go back soon and get the full experience because it’s stunning! =O << face i made when I went to the beach. hahaha seriously πŸ˜€

I’ve never been to an ocean beach! I’ve been to Lake Erie, I loved picking up interesting rocks and water worn glass. Wasn’t warm enough to swim that day.

What I love and enjoy most about the beach is the sound the waves make. But now that I’m a mom, what I enjoy most is watching my daughter make sand castles and splash around in the water πŸ™‚

I love the calming ocean waves when I go to the beach. Nothing like laying down on a towel, closing your eyes and listening to the waves.

My favorite things about the beach…

1. The sound of crashing waves, it instantly clears my mind and puts me at ease

2. The smell of salt water and how nice it makes my skin look and feel

3. Bodyboarding!! πŸ™‚

4. Soaking up the sun and feeling its warmth

I love collecting seashells at the beach always =) just like the cute MAC packaging of the eyeshadows and lipsticks πŸ˜‰ I think shells play a big part of going to the beach and to me it’s my favorite part!

Maybe it’s odd, but what I most enjoy about the beach is the color. It’s always so green and brown and grey where I live, but the beach is so bright and vivid.

What I love most about the beach is the weather. I live in surf city HB and about a 10 min walk from the pier, and the weather is always great. The fog that rolls in early in the evening, the breezes and a hot day, and the smell of the sea everywhere.

I am blessed enough to live a mere 10 minutes away from the shore but my favorite time to go to the beach is late at night. I like to sit above the shore, high above on the rocks, and watch the tide creep up. There’s something about the scent of the water, the sound of the waves crashing – it gives me peace.

P.S. I RT’ed! http://twitter.com/RAEview

I love to laying in the shadow of a big three, reading and listening to nice music while smelling the ocean and feeling the sand between the toes. I love to find beautiful shells and to walk in the water with the waves, listening to the calming sound of them.

I love the EVERYTHING about the beach…the feel of the sand, the sound of the waves, the view of the horizon in the distance.

I love it because brings me really good memories from my childhood, my family…
Now that I think about i have done a lot of things in the beach along all my life ^^
Always makes me feel good vibrations for the sun (IΒ΄m from Spain) summer, vacations, etc

I love going to the beach with friends and family. Setting up a big umbrella so we can stay cool under a shade, Enjoying our afternoons with a small picnic or bbq. Walking on the sand while the waves hit your feet. The whole experience is always just so much fun.

I love the fresh smell it feels so clean there! Nowadays you always smell cars and other stuff when you’re outside. But at the see you just smell nature and a pure scent.

I love getting beach hair! My hair is normally really straight and doesn’t accept curling irons or anything, yet with a little ocean water and the wind it’s awesomely wavy!

I love to hear the waves crashing and seeing the sunset…the tranquility and i kinda like that beacy summer scent..so peaceful..a place to get away frm city life!

what i love most about the beach is the sunny days, the warm water, and spending the day with my family&friends. I LOVE the beach!

What I love about the beach is that It remeinds me of my Mum. We talked so much on the beach, about her life, my life and everything. Lovely hours that I always remember when I have the luck beeing there again.

I love how at the beach I am no longer a stressed out mommy with a million chores to catch up on; I feel like a sun kissed mermaid lounging on the sand soaking in the island atmosphere.

I love the beach because I don’t live at the beach and so it’s every year something special. It’s holiday on a lonely island. The beach makes me feel calm and quiet. I love it to feel the sand between my toes, the sun in my face and the wind in my hair. I can sit under my umbrella and read a book or just sleep a little bit, or I can stroll around, go swimming, have fun. You can do everything on the beach, but definitely RELAX. I’m really looking forward to the holiday now! ^^

What I love most about the beach, is it’s smell. Smell of salty cold water, smell of freshness of the air, smell of open waters. The air is thick and full of excitement. The sand glistens like little crystals in the sun. People are tanning, playing sports, having picnicks. The kids playing in the little waves that crash towards the shore. I love the beach and everything about, and I hate leaving the beach to go home.

Here in Italy there are beautiful beaches in a region called “Salento”.The best about Salento are the powerful colors: green, deep blue, red at sunset, yellow of the sun in the morning.
I love these colours!

What I love most about the beach is how relaxing it is and all the stuff there is you can do. I especially love to swim!!

I love the relaxed feeling I get at the beach, and the feeling of sand between my toes! And the chance to dig those bikinis out and wear bright, summery colours πŸ™‚

The best part of the beach is being able to spend a relaxing day with the family or alone. The sound and smell of the beach is the best! Feeling the fresh air, ugh nothing compares! It’s a mini vacay for the day!

I love getting a cute new cover up, hat and beach bag every year! I don’t like the sand but I love the smell of the ocean and the breeze πŸ™‚

I love the beach at the evening when The sun is setting and the ocean looks so peaceful, and then when it is raining and it is a beautiful teal color. It is beautiful!!

I love that a trip to the beach brings people together. People let loose and are more friendly. It’s just a good atmosphere and I always get good vibes when I’m at the beach.

The thing I like the most about the beach is that I usually go with my best friend from school, we always have a blast! And the beach makes you feel so wonderfully calm and lazy πŸ™‚

what i love the most about the beach is the feeling you get when the wind is blowing in your hair while you move your feet around the sand and the suns warmth touching your body and the sound of the waves…..its one of the most peaceful places to relax with anybody, its very soothing

my favourite thing about beach is the feeling i get
when you look at the sea and all u can see is endlees water and the sky. i don’t know what it is but that always makes me feel calm and relaxed.

I lived next to the beach in the Caribbean. The beach is both relaxing and exciting! Listening to the waves roll in and watching the clear blue water can make all your worries go away. On the other hand, having a bbq on the beach, with some music and playing in the water is awesome! I love everything about the beach. It has a way of making all your worries disappear, and adding some fun to your day..or evening… πŸ™‚

What I love most about the beach is that you’re so relaxed when you’re there…carefree, no worries, just out for a good time! Michigan has 3,288 miles of shoreline, more than any other state except Alaska, and we looove our summers at the lake!

I love the beach because it’s warm and breezy. I can forget about my everyday stress and just enjoy a day of doing nothing. πŸ™‚

I live in Canada and I hope it’s fine if I enter the contest.

I love our beaches here in Tel Aviv for the waiter that brings me anything from watermelon or French fries to cappuccinos or a shot of tequila… the Mediterranean Sea, gorgeous people, warm water and for making me look like Chocolate Thunder every April through October!

What I most love about the beach is the tranquility the breeze and the waves give you when you need to get away , thats where you can go .

I love scurrying across the scorching sand,claiming your spot and then finally sitting down and digging your toes down to the cool sand. Ahhh…

Living in Hawaii, the most soothing to do after a long day is to walk barefoot, feeling the sand rolling between your toes, and watching the waves quietly crash onto the shore. Pure peace πŸ™‚

What I love about the beach is that you are stress free. There are many joyful things to do like swimming, tanning, walking on the sand and most of all spending time with your family and friends. My favourite is enjoying the weather!!
THX!

I love the beach because of the sun. Just laying on a towel or blanket under an umbrella, feeling the warmth of the sun (but being protected by my SPF) is one of the best feelings in the world.

I love the beach for sandcastles and swimming! I used to live by the ocean, and I miss it- but in my community we have a lake and it’s awesome! I love “beach” food. Fruits, chips, sandwiches… the works!

i love the beach because it’s so hot and sunny, but then that nice breeze just comes and makes everything so peaceful and calm.

I love the sea, always have always will, the sound of the water lapping on the shore. You can lye there and just listen to the waves breaking and it feels like all your troubles just get washed away. Heaven!!!

my favorite thing about the beach is watching my puggle Norton and my jack russell Greta playing together and smiling! we live in oregon so we call it the “coast” πŸ™‚

The beach is an amazing place to build wonderful memories. Life cannot be terrible when you’re faced with the surf, the sand, and some friends.

Sadly, there is not a beach close to me but when I get the chance to go I love it because it is very relaxing, all my stress and worries are gone (temporarily of course).

I love the beach for its smell, and also for its climate, where I live, in summer is so hot, and the beach is always a breeze of fresh air!

I usually visit the beach when it’s hot, in the summer so right now, while it’s raining like hell outside the window, the sunny beach is the only place I wish I could move to. πŸ™‚ seriously, it’s the warm sand, the smell of body lotion and the light cooling breeze… mhmmmmm πŸ™‚

I love how the beach waves relax me and take my mind off things with little meaning, but in reality mean so much more. It has the power to take down cities yet can be so calm and harmless.

What i love most about the beach is the feel of sand on your toes while watching the soothing view of the waves and the water. Not only is it so pretty, but its also so fun, relaxing, and gives your face a nice healthy glow.

Watching my daughter’s reaction to walking on the sand or just how cold the Pacific Ocean is at Rockaway Beach in Pacifica, CA

I love just about everything about the beach, but I guess my favorite thing is how relaxing it can be. I love the water and it’s always nice to spend an afternoon at the beach with your family.

I love the beach collection, very calm, but vibrant, fun colors to make you feel ready for the summer. It also enhances you to feel and look good. W/o tanning…. HOT HOT HOT COLLECTION. i would love to win……= )

I love the beach because…
1) It’s SO relaxing to just lay back and soak up some rays.
2) The water’s so refreshing if it gets too hot
3) You can wear fun bright colors on your toes and get them noticed πŸ™‚
4) How messy your hair gets afterward (I’m sorry, I love after-beach hair)

oh, there is not one thing I don’t love about the beach. the sand, the cool blue water, chilling out under the sun. but I am months away from a beach holiday. sigh

I love the beach at night – especially when it’s so dark you can’t see anything and your other senses are sharpened – you just hear the waves crashing, smell the sea and feel the sand under your fingertips. It’s unlike anything else.

What I honestly love most about the beach is meeting up with friends and just having a nice bonfire and cooking up s’mores and hot dogs xD

Growing up on a beautiful isalnd, I have so many fond memories of the beach. The one that stands out the most is having lunch with my family on the beach and staying to watch the sunset.

What I love about the beach.. well just everything really! the sea (its sound and swimming in it), the sun, the sand.. It just makes me feel happy and holidayish (is that a word? hmm):D

My favorite thing is the sun warming my body, the sound of the waves and the seagull screaming. All that I absolutely love, however I don’t go in the water because I’m too fat and ugly.

Twitter: Monticka

i love the sand at the beach! feeling it between my toes πŸ™‚ i love how everyone just gets excited over going to the beach!!!

What I love most about the beach… hearing the waves, feeling the cool breeze from the ocean, and basking in the warmth of the sun!
