Swimming in the ocean, apart from being an excellent workout, can help to improve the immune system with help from the vitamins and minerals comprised in the saltwater.

The sea air contains negative ions which help the body to take in oxygen.

The sound of the waves can lull the body and mind into a meditative state thereby decreasing stress and improving calmness.
