Footprints in the Sand

Going to the beach in the summer is a much-loved activity.

When you go to the beach, do you like to wear sandals or walk bare-footed? I know some people don't like sand getting on the feet and legs.

I LOVE it!

It is also very good for your feet, the salt water, and sand do a little
'Pedi-cure', and your feet always go home better for it.
Believe me.
Does a bear poop in the woods?! Yes, there is no other way to walk on the beach as far as I am concerned. I love the feeling of sand between my toes.

I don't mind getting sand stuck on my feet. Half the fun of going to the beach is feeling the wet sand under your feet, and maybe get the feet wet in the waves. Can't wait for summer again.
I hate sand and hate feet, so that is a definite no. I really dislike the feeling of gritty sand on the body, and it is hard to get off unless you immerse yourself in water - I don't like going in the sea either.
Is there any other way?
If it's a sandy beach than barefoot !00%. If the beach is really rocky or has lots of shells then I would prefer sandals.
Definitely bare-footed! Got to get the sand between your toes and it's a great exfoliation treatment for your overworked feet!
I find walking barefoot on the beach is a great way to de-stress and connect with nature - something we don't get enough of living in the city.

What a good question.

I always go bare footed in australia however after catching a rare strain of hook worm which doctors took about 2 weeks to discover what was wrong with me, while I was in Asia, I would no longer go in Asia without thongs.

Apparently the hook worm enter through your foot, travel to your heart and back down to your stomach where they multiply and I was so, so sick i could not stand up in the end.

Coming from a tropical Island, it shouldn't be the case, but I do hate the beachy sand! I dislike getting sand between my toes and simply hate rubbing off the tiny particles stuck to my legs.
Bare Foot any time :Love It .
A great sense of freedom, experiencing the refreshing soothing cool water on your feet. Life to be appreciated.There also is the added health benefit - Walking barefoot strengthens and stretches the muscles, tendons and ligaments in your feet, ankles and calves.

When I go to the beach I want to go in the water so it only makes sense for me to walk bear footed. I can't resist that water.
Just did the Great Ocean Walk in Victoria and when we got to Johanna Beach, which is a 21/2kms walk along the sand I took my shoes off and walked in the water's edge - my tired feet said "thank you"!
