What does the beach mean to you?

If you love the beach you will love manonabeach. Travelling from coast to coast, manonabeach has been asking beach-goers from Cornwall to Scotland…

What does the beach mean to you?

In autumn of 2012, manonabeach made his way to Dorset and shot footage of most of the major Dorset beaches. He also conducted interviews that highlight the powerful and diverse effects our beautiful coastline has on people’s psyche.

Des, interviewed at Durdle Door, sees the beach as a stress reliever.



Take a peek at the wide sandy beaches of Studland below:


Along with Dorset, manonabeach has visited the beaches of Cornwall, Norfolk & Suffolk, Sussex, Scottish Lowlands and North East Scotland. manonabeach is also involved in some very important and interesting research, looking at the economic value of the beach environment and how natural water environments can be utilised to promote human health and well-being.

“The project celebrates the elemental power of the beach and its profound effect on people who enjoy being where the air, land and sea meet.”

There are also some excellent photo galleries on manonabeach’s Facebook page.
