Yeah, it can be. But to be honest, I couldn't be comforted by the beach itself. I thought just seeing it would comfort me, but I was in such distress it didn't really help at all. For a few short seconds I was awed at seeing dolphins swimming from my room but other than that I was pretty much unaffected by the beauty of the beach. It was definitely the air itself. As soon as I got into the town and close to the water, I could feel something very invigorating in the air. I also slept really really soundly. I'm home now and am waking up every little bit really stressed out.
