Ever been to a coastal area on holiday and at some stage during that time think to yourself, “wouldn’t it be great if we lived here permanently?”

Abandoning the big smoke for the seaside holds the promise of tight-knit communities, more affordable housing, a relaxed daily pace, and a parade of quirky yet loveable local characters. It’s a dream many of us entertain for our retirement years, but those who monitor the demographics of coastal areas say that it’s also home to younger people who are opting for this quieter way of life.
