We all know that we need to protect our skin in the sun, especially when abroad. But did you know that far from doing harm, some exposure to sunshine can actually be a really good thing?
Sailing holiday tips - Stay safe in the sun
One of the great benefits of sunshine, especially when on holiday, is that it tends to make us wake up earlier in the morning. For one thing, blazing sun is a difficult thing to sleep through, but you also want to make the most of every minute when sailing Croatia’s seas and beyond. And getting up early actually has a number of health benefits: not only do experts suggest that early-morning go-getters are more likely to avoid putting on weight, but being up with the sun makes dealing with time-zone differences a breeze.

We all know that having a balance of vitamins is important to stay healthy, and the sun plays a major role in keeping us fit and well. Sunshine helps the body to produce vitamin D, which is vital for bone strength and development, so safe sunbathing can actually do you good.

In addition to this, exposure to the sun can make getting to sleep at night more straightforward, leaving holiday-goers refreshed and ready to make the most of their time away.
