Life's A Beach In Cornwall

It seems we really do like to be beside the seaside.

Psychologists in the south-west say our brains are "hard-wired" so we feel better at the beach.

Nearly 2,800 people took part in the survey by Natural England, and given the choice of coast, countryside or a town park, the coast came out on top.

They even reckon there is evidence it could protect us from getting ill.

Siraj Jehangiri works in a cafe at Portreath, and say he thinks the research is right:

"It's definitely true, it's just nice and calm. There is no stress here compared to if you live in a city. For example, every time I go to bed all I hear is just nice sounds of waves just thrashing on the coast, so just amazing, definitely.

"When I came down here and saw the sea, it was just a totally different experience and everything. For example, last week when I went for surfing I saw dolphins, so it was amazing and it's really rare as well. But it's just nice, being more attached to the nature."
