The sea is said to provide a place of calm and a sense of openness, reducing stress and boosting health and wellbeing.
Its no-wonder we’re never that far away from it…
In celebration of the sea, we take a closer look at our coastal ‘hidden gems’, Wanderlust Life stockists who reside close to the ocean around the UK and beyond.
Overlooking Porth is Roo’s Beach Boutique, a vibrant store featuring an eclectic mix of colourful, coastal-living inspired brands from around the world.
