Did you know that there are actual health benefits to living by the sea? A recent study from Health & Place states that visible coastlines are linked to better mental health. Besides the obvious benefits of living near the water, these findings reinforce the benefits of Sunshine Coast canal and beachfront property such as the Quays in Pelican Waters.
If you’re still not convinced of the perks of waterfront living, consider the following six reasons:
Waking up to awe-inspiring panoramic views may likely be the most attractive selling point of living by the water—and for good reason! Watching the sunrise as you start your day is a luxury that many would covet. At the same time, sharing romantic sunsets with a loved one can be perfect, even without the need to have dinner out. Regardless of the time of year, the views from The Quays are sure to be magical while making nature an accessible reality even so close to Caloundra.
Close Knit Community
The community at Pelican Waters is both unique and diverse. When the development was first conceived 28 years ago, the objective was to create a masterpiece waterfront that people will be happy to call home. With commercial and public spaces that encourage people to mingle with the neighbours, residents can easily find their social circles expanding. Picnics, barbecues, and more can become regular events with so many new friends.
Fresh Sea Breeze
The mountains are not the only place where you can indulge in fresh air; beachfront land or waterfront land like the Quays offer air quality that have clear health benefits. Just imagine breathing in the slightly salty smell of the ocean air as you step out of your waterfront property. The health benefits of living in an environment away from fog, haze, and other city pollution cannot be overlooked. An additional bonus to living at The Quays is the fact that it is close to nature and, at the same time, it is in close proximity to Brisbane, Noosa, Caloundra, and even major tourist attractions.
Town Centre and Marina
Just when you thought Pelican Waters couldn’t get any better, there came the unveiling of the master planned Town Centre and Marina development. Years in the planning, the project is being brought to life with a good mix of commercial, retail, and dining opportunities all within easy access of Sunshine Coast homes. The marina precinct alone is a sailing-lover’s paradise with multiple wet berths as well as a dry stack facility with concierge-style service that makes for a hassle-free day on the water.
Boatloads of Activities
Snatching that waterfront real estate can mean that there would never be a dull moment in your life. Wakeboarding, jet-skiing, snorkelling, surfing—trying out water sports such as these would be a no-brainer with so many suitable facilities close by. If you’re not into sports, you can look at renting a boat or kayak and spend some time exploring nearby islands, getting up close and personal with the local wildlife, or simply soaking up the sun with loved ones.
So Much Sunshine
While it’s not advisable to spend too much time under the sun, getting some rays can be good for your health. Sunshine can help you get your fix of vitamin D, contribute to better sleeping habits, sync your biological clock, and even enhance your moods. Be careful not to get your skin burnt though. Ideally, you should expose your skin to UVB for only around 15 minutes if you have fair skin and maybe an hour if you have a dark complexion. A walk around the canal or coast can be a good idea to achieve this.
Are you convinced to ditch the white noise machine and go for the real thing? The soothing sound of the water and the cool night breeze rolling off the tide will rock you to sleep better than any instrumental tunes.
