How good is the sea in winter? Boating and being in touch are great allies for humans, especially during the winter when city chaos and stress fill our weeks. During the summer, anyone who loves boats will probably find the sea an ideal place to relax and catch their breath. Of course, it depends on the areas. The influence of the marine environment, however, should not be underestimated during winter even when far fewer people are sailing. Here are 5 reasons why the sea in winter is great.

Winter symptoms

Seaside areas, being generally windier, often have cleaner air. It should also be considered that contact with this environment stimulates the immune system and thus helps us stay healthy and respond better to illness and flu symptoms. In addition, the sea is a real panacea for allergy sufferers because it acts as a natural aerosol by making respiratory symptoms improve, thanks to the presence of iodine, which is also recommended for those suffering from reduced thyroid functioning.


Not only when you are sick, but even before that you can experience “thalassotherapy.” Thalassa in Greek actually means “sea.” How does it work? Through the absorption of substances contained in seawater- trace elements and salts-restoration of organic balance is promoted. The body becomes stronger and more resistant to external aggression. Thalassotherapy on the healing action of the marine climate, the sea itself and its products.


By now it is known: stress is bad for you. Therefore, relaxation is also very important for maintaining good health. Blue is the color of the sea and is generally considered a relaxing color for the eyes and mind. According to some studies, this color is actually able to reduce blood pressure and body temperature, helping us to relax more and thus keep us healthier.


The sea is not only experienced in summer, but also during winter. As you leave the harbor in winter you will rediscover the pleasure of going to sea when there is no one around you. Besides, fishing in winter is also quite “profitable,” you just need to know how to do it.
