I used to title "walking on the beach" of theYear 2008 Calender Project Aside from the beautiful view of the ocean and the great people watching there are many benefits of walking on the beach. Walking in sand requires a greater effort than walking on a hard surface. Your muscles and tendons will work harder as your foot moves around. Experience in Maldives. Don't forget that one of the many benefits of walking is that walking is relaxing so don't forget to stop and pick up a pretty shell, look for porpoises playing in the surf, and notice the always changing colors of the water and the sky.
