The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination, and brings eternal joy to the soul. Travelling alone is one of the most liberating things one could do. It can help you find things about yourself. It can help you learn things about yourself that you never knew. Cecelia Ahern said “There was a magic about the sea. People were drawn to it. People wanted to love it, swim in it, play in it, look at it. It was a living thing that was as unpredictable as a great stage actor: it could be calm and welcoming, opening its arms to embrace its audience one moment, but then could explode with its stormy tempers, flinging people around, wanting them out, attacking coastlines, breaking down islands.” Here are some of the popular Beach Destinations of India
