What a difficult question!! Haha each with its pros and cons. But if I absolutely had to choose, I'd choose the beach, because that means I can go for a swim whenever I want! (I'm a water sports fan, so anything beach-related instantly wins my heart).
I would prefer the mountains. I love the beach in winter, to walk along damp sand, around rock pools but the mountains are so picturesque, there are more walks to be had and the vistas can be spectacular.
Mountains :D I am not good at swimming, so I am never keen on a beach for vacation. My husband loves both, so that won't be a problem. This is a picture I took on my last vacation where mountains and beach were next to each other :)
Hmmm. Well now. I love both so it's hard for me to choose! My childhood holidays were wonderful as we always stayed in a little cottage in Wales, which was practically on the beach but also two spits from a beautiful mountain range which included Snowden. So we had the best of both worlds! Many happy memories :)
The mountains. I have been on a lot of beach holidays and I am a bit bored with it. I have very fair skin so I get burned easily and I'm not into fishing. Swimming at the beach is nice but sometimes I fancy a change.
Childhood holidays always by the sea - not always on the beach! We have since lived near mountains - glorious - once past 50, cruises have become the "dream realised" and thus obtain the best of both worlds ... river is calmer but ocean - wonderful and (ok! sad old bag!) only on an over 50's cruise - sorry but cruises are NOT suitable for children anyway - and many of the ancient clientele are worse sometimes than children, anyway!!! Cruises cost no more than a normal type holiday nowadays thus you can go to the sea (ha!) or see the mountains ... and of course it is a privilege anyway - we save up; our next cruise is Dec16 ...
Not too many mountains where I live, that you can holiday at!
When I was young, the beach, of course!
As got older, much preferred National,Parks, to camp in.
These days', it's comfort all the way!
Am 'thinking' about going on the new 'Ghan' from Alice Springs to Darwin, to 'close' the 'loop', as have already been by 'Old Ghan' via Maree & 'New Ghan' from SA to 'The Alice'.
They were both fantastic trips!
Yes, miro_, sure did!
As ours' was the first train to operate in four months', due flooding, it was very long, as had SIX vehicle trays' attached. My husband ran from one end to other, & back, whilst we were stopped there; it took him ten minutes'!
