The study done by the European Centre for Environment and Human Health, based on 2001 census data in England, shows that people, who live near the coast, feel healthier in comparison to those who live away from the shore. The travelers, who take a beach vacation, experience the positive effects of the marine climate as well. The sea air is very beneficial for people with metabolic disorders, functional diseases of the nervous system and respiratory diseases.
