How to experience the beach without traveling this summer

Miss the sun and sea already? We got you

It’s been two summers since most of us have last visited the beach, and the yearning to feel the sand between our toes and hear the calming sounds of waves once again is too real. But just because it’s not advisable to travel to our favorite seaside destination doesn’t mean we can’t have an enjoyable and relaxing getaway this season.

Here’s what you can do to ease the summer blues if you miss the beach already—and nope, no long road trips required!

Having an indoor pool is probably the best way to bring the beach to your home, but not everyone has the money or space for that.

Complete the mood by bringing beach equipment like swim tubes and beach balls and wearing full swimming gear, like bathing suits and swimming goggles.

Have a seafood feast

Enjoy unlimited servings of shrimp, crab, tuna and oyster dishes as well as  Filipino favorites like calamares and kinilaw for only P399 at Seafood Paradise’s eat-all-you-can buffet. There’s no time limit to finish your meal, so you can savor delicious seafood as long as you like.
