Beach or Mountain Person: Who You Are?

12 mins. read

If you look over the internet, ‘Beach or Mountain Person’ is a quiz or a personality trait trail taken by so many! It is the travellers ‘what pizza are you?’ test that most teens take on social media. Many writers have traced down a significant way to decide that people who love the beach are more outgoing, energetic and extroverts and the ones who love the mountains are romantic, self-reserved and introverts! It is an interesting perception. But I observe that there are so many elements in each category. For example, the beach is not only associated with perfectly tanned humans sipping margaritas with pretty hat and laying with umbrella sheds! It is actually about how calming the ocean is sometimes. It can be about simply writing near the beach or reading or even making sand castles! Now that sounds like the attributes of the introverts, but it can be truly momentary. An extrovert can completely feel calm close to the ocean and an introvert can start dancing looking at the stunning view from the mountain he just climbed.

Beach or Mountain Person

You simply cannot frame one attribute to the entire population, each with their emotional pattern and life. So the question is more like Who You Are, NOW? What Is Calling You More, right NOW? While I write so many travel stories, I have asked so many people what do like more, beach or mountains? And trust me, they couldn’t choose! I believe most can’t, especially the ones who dream to travel the whole world. Now that we’ve understood that it is more about what calls us more, let us understand the perks of each. Also, we can read where to satisfy the calling the best!



“A beach is not only a sweep of sand, but shells of sea creatures, the sea glass, the seaweed, the incongruous objects washed up by the ocean.”

Henry Grunwald



Beach! The word itself brings an emotion of joy. At the same time, the ‘Ocean’ brings an emotion of calmness and modesty. For a location with such ironic attributes, categorising it in one personality type can be deceiving. So, let us rather see what can sound like a perfect beach holiday! The recipe of a perfect beach holiday includes - 1 Sun, Infinite Sand and Endless Ocean. That’s for the base! Well, what actually makes any beach holiday perfect is how clean and pure vibe it has and is.

Because what actually makes the beach exciting and peaceful at the same time is us. What we plan to do or feel in the moment to enjoy in multiple ways, can make the difference. Some prefer to surf, some prefer to relax, some prefer to race the waves where it meets the beach and some simply want to make sandcastles. Reasons can be so many, but if you’re wondering what beaches to be at to answer your calling, then wait no more! Here are 3 destinations that have perfect beaches of all time. They’ve topped so many lists and have been travellers favourite for long.

“Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb.”

Greg Child



Well, Mountains! This word, unlike the previous one, reminds us of the idea of GRAND! The word itself is mostly associated with something extremely huge and positively high. The people who love mountains are often perceived as achievers and adventurous. Although, the idea of climbing a mountain is closely related to challenging oneself. Sometimes it is simply about how calming that view can be. That impossible panorama that one gets to see above, feel like they’re above the clouds and they have touched it. This in itself soothes oneself to take that climb, or just simply be there.

For some it is about the adrenaline rush and for some, it is about that feeling of reaching the summit. Mountains will always remain close to every human. After all, we all grew up drawing mountains when we were asked to draw scenery. It tells us, that it is deeply engraved in us about mountains being the main element of picturing nature. While the whole world is full of so many mountains that one climb and one can enjoy, there are 3 recommendations that are right here in India. Each one incomparable to the other, see where you see yourself, and plan to be there, right away!
