At McGrath Real Estate we live and breathe the coastal lifestyle. If you are anything like us you will know that living by the sea is good for the soul and good for your health too.


Living seaside has many wonderful health benefits and in this crazy rat race that is the world we live in, making a choice for a sea change can have wonderful health benefits for you and your family.


Coastal living benefits you physically and mentally and is good for the soul.


Some of the best benefits are:


Embracing the outdoors

Coastal living allows you to make the most of the outdoors, not just in summer but in winter too. Taking time for beach walks, summer or winter, and breathing in the fresh coastal air can do wonders. Not to mention getting some well-needed vitamin D in the warmer months.



Keeping fit is that little bit easier by the sea. Most coastal suburbs of Adelaide have great running tracks, and beach walks are of course a must as well. It can sometimes be a little hard to drag yourself out of bed early in the morning to exercise, but watching the sunrise whilst doing it makes it that little bit easier.


Keeping Zen and sleeping better

Did you know the sound of the waves crashing at night alters patterns in the brain? They have the ability to rejuvenate the mind and help you be in a more relaxed state. Ever wonder why you are always more relaxed and tired on a beach holiday? It might have something to do with the sound of the waves crashing!


Family-friendly activities

Beach living and its lifestyle is extremely family friendly with beach activities and many things to do around coastal suburbs, making it a great place to raise your children. Getting little people out of the house to burn off steam benefits the whole family.
