Things to Do on Cape Ann

For centuries, the seashore has been considered a place of health and healing. Every aspect of the beach experience, from the sand to the salt water to the sun, has their own unique benefits to body and mind. Cape Ann, especially, with its many beaches and miles of spectacular coastline, is a fantastic destination for those seeking to practice quality self-care. Here are some of the many ways a trip to the beach can help you, body and soul.

We've clearly come a long way since the 18th century, when physicians of the day prescribed drinking sea water mixed with milk and frequent dunking of patients in freezing sea water to invigorate the body. But today's science still agrees that the ocean and the beaches can provide a full range of positive health impacts, whether you swim or just listen to the sound of the waves and enjoy the breeze in your hair.
