Mountains are prettier than beaches

Mountains are prettier than beaches
The world is filled with beautiful landscapes. Beaches, mountains, lakes, seas, are a plethora of landscape that deserve hours of appreciation. As for myself, I've enjoyed both mountains and beaches (especially during summer), though mountains are my favorite. The mountains are more serene and tranquil and you can hear your own thought when meditating in nature. In the mountains, you can see wildlife and trees. While on the beach, it's always overly hot and crowded with too many bodies. Though water is always beautiful, you can't always enjoy it as there are too many people around. And, maybe this just depends on what beaches you visit. I dream of visiting a place where the beaches are as pristine and pretty as the mountains. Do you agree that mountains are more beautiful than beaches?



Very beautiful

Yes, I completely agree with you. I generally don't like extremely hot weather so as much as I occasionally do enjoy going to the beach, it isn't my favorite thing in the world. I also don't find beaches as beautiful or pretty. Most often they're just some sand or rocks.

On the other hand, mountains are absolutely amazing. I love to hike and visit the local mountains that we have. The things you can see there is mindblowing. Every mountain has something unique and special. I also love the fresh air and a good workout that mountains involve. I feel at peace and relaxed whenever I go to any mountain.

Mountains are a natural landscape that is worth seeing.

Seen More Beaches Than Mountains

Grew up in a tropical climate. I've seen more beaches than I have mountains. The mountains I have seen did not impress enough for me to say that they were prettier than beaches. Besides that, I have a travel shows talking about the "best beaches" to visit. I can't remember seeing a travel show about the "best mountains". (O.o) :)

Ooops! Sorry. Put these comments on the wrong side. My bad!

100% - Yes they are

As I choose to live in a fairly remote mountainous region with ever changing spectacular scenery 365 days of the year - how could I do anything else but agree that they are.

In fact so much so - that even though the coast is just half an hours drive away - I rarely ever go - as for me - nothing quite beats the pleasure of the seeing the dry mountain streams that then turn into torrents of gushing water in the winter - or the craggy rock faces with great swathes of rare and beautiful wild-flowers or the numerous species of wildlife - some of which are now almost extinct and that's without even mentioning - the magnificent displays of cloud formations that sit on or just above the mountain tops, snow, lightening flashes, exquisite rainbows or the breathtaking colors of sunrises and sunsets - that I get to see from my windows.

As much as I like beaches they are only sand and water. Nothing compares to the beautiful scenario of a mountain that holds millions of years of natural history

Mountains are breathtaking

DEFINITELY the Mountains! I am not a beach fan, on the contraries, i rather the ocean - the sea, or deserted beaches. But the mountains is something, at least for myself, rather inspiring, romantic, adventurous, exploring and above all - excellent for those whom like to write.

I agree.

I haven't noticed that mountains are so awesome, certainly, they show a particular greatness, for me, mountain show the immensity of its creator because of the details. Last year, I had the chance of traveling to Merida (the highest place in my country, Venezuela) where I realized how great is God because of his creations. I love beaches too and it's unfair laying aside their beauty but, if I have to choose one place, I would choose the mountain.

They are

I agree. To me, mountains are beautiful, the air is fresher and cleaner than in any other place. There are many things I like about mountains: the landscapes (and the way they change with the seasons), the altitude, the colors all around you and the flowers. Also, I don't really like the beach that much. Too much sun, heat and people.

Mountains are really pretty places, there's a lot of things that you can do. You can go hunting for foods, climb trees, see exotic animals and plants.
Posted by DanoCath on 08-17-2017


Mountains are very beautiful. I love climbing them too and meet different kinds of vegetation. Beaches are not so.

On top of the mountain one can see the world stretching or spreading below. It is a wonderful experience.

Dead Rocks

Mountains to me, are a waste of space. Some do look majestic and have good views and perhaps paths to hike. The beaches have movement and life and food. Being on a tropical beach with warm clear blue seas must beat cold hard rock any time.

Mountains are strong

Mountains are strong. Great creator had been set up those on this world on several places for the control of land. Certain earth quake can not destroy the land for the heavier mountains. Mountains are sign and symptom of strong capability. Beaches are sign and symptom of big heart matter.

I don't see any mountains in reality

Nope, sorry I had never seen any real mountains nor hills in reality. I had watched them on TV but it doesn't feel the same , just fake in my opinion. The view of mountains of each person is different.

Some people find that mountain view is spectacular due to the height from the peak but it is scary if you have height phobia. I prefer the beaches, where I can step onto the sandy beach, feel the sea water, feel the breeze and breathe in the fresh air, now that is reality.

I have gone hiking and holidaying near the mountains but I still prefer to go to the beach. What can be more relaxing than hearing the sounds of the waves and the chirping of the birds when you wake up in the morning. This makes me feel as if I am in paradise. I equally enjoy walking on the beach and swimming in the lagoon. Those are not only good exercises but very unwinding too. I equally love to play with my niece and nephew to help them build sandcastles. Watching the sunset is yet another amazing thing. What a beautiful way to end my day. I love to lie on the sand at night and look at the stars twinkling in the sky. This definitely helps in relaxing my weary mind.

I love tropical weather. Beaches spread that tropical flavor which is irresistible. That warm water, burning sun, and nice vibes at the beach make beaches a paradise! Plus, you can see some nice bodies walking by.
Posted by Rebelssis on 08-23-2017


Don't get me wrong, mountains are beautiful but what's more beautiful than the mountains? the beach! hearing the lovely waves, going for a swim... nothing like quite the feeling of freshness of the sea. Seeing those lovely fishes swim underwater it is such a delight!
Posted by MichaelSoriano15 on 08-17-2017

Beach, please!

Sorry but beaches can kick mountains out off the curb. I don't know but I found oceans more appealing compared to mountains.

A Beach Life for me

I love mountains but I love beaches more. Nothing can be more relaxing and peaceful than laying on white sand while surrounded by blue water. The waves are enough to get me to relax and doze off to sleep.
Posted by yieesh on 08-28-2017


You can appreciate the beauty of the beach within your reach and be amazed on the wave that never duplicated. Unlike beaches, Mountains can only appreciate from afar and takes you a long journey to be on it. I'm a beach guy and I do love to swim, to hug the ocean and to be cleansed. There are tons of activities that you can do on beaches and lots of things to see underneath with it. Beaches will always be the number one destination for me.

I don't really understand your post. What are we agreeing and disagreeing on here? Also, are you asking us what is the prettiest natural landscape that you've ever seen? Or it should be on our perspective? Sorry I'm kind of slow. Probably had too much caffeine. @_@
Posted by galegatling on 08-11-2017
I think this post is a bit confusing, there is nothing being debated here. Perhaps if you posted "which natural landscape do your prefer, beaches or mountains?" Then, of course list the attributes, pros and cons of each... then it would be a debate for folks to vote on. However, if you are just opening a discussion to learn about what beautiful landscapes (in their own opinion) people have been to, well that leaves plenty of room open for discussion. I'm going to assume the later, in which case I think the prettiest landscape I've seen was in the Bavaria region of Germany when driving between Neuschwanstein Castle and Linderhof Castle. Along the route we encountered the most magical, aqua marine lake I could have ever imagined. There are truly no words to describe the color of the water and the photograph we took couldn't do it any justice either. Not only was the lake water magical, but the mountains and greenery surrounding it all, it was truly ethereal! We dream to one day return there, but this time spend time along the lake exploring and not just driving from castle to castle, though it was a magnificent drive.

I am a fan of both. I personally prefer beaches since it is relaxing to just lie down and feel the breeze.Most beach resorts are pretty nice based on my past experience so I have no qualms going to the beach with my friends and family.
Posted by fishmonk on 08-11-2017
I think mountains are more beautiful than beaches, but if I had to choose between the two, I would go with the beaches, because they are usually fun and relaxing. It is just a good way to kick back and enjoy the sun. I think the mountains are fun to hike in and enjoy. I like them very much. I like both of them.
Posted by kgord on 08-13-2017
I would say that mountains are more beautiful than beaches. I don't care about going to the beach even when the weather is hot, but I always like to go to the mountains although I don't live close to mountains presently. There is something majestic about mountains as they are so massive and make you realize how small and insignificant you really are in this world. Being on a mountain gives you a new perspective when you look at all the scenery around you and fill you with inner peace and tranquility.
Posted by morgoodie on 08-15-2017
I seriously prefer the beach, the sound of the waves and the view for me it is so relaxing. People like me who love to spend time with family and friends the beach is the best place to go. Additionally, you can meet new people from other states or cities even other countries who love to go to the beach too. Meanwhile, people who usually like to go to the mountains like to go alone to enjoy the nature and found their selfs.
Posted by pizzalover on 08-16-2017
Oh nice, the post has been edited. Hmm well for me, I wouldn't really say that either of them are prettier than the other because in my opinion, they are both beautiful and have their own way of being majestic and such. Both of them are from nature so we shouldn't really be choosing which one is prettier than the other. Mountains have their own way of showing us that we should appreciate them and so are the beaches, oceans, seas and others.
Posted by galegatling on 08-17-2017
Both are beautiful to me and I enjoy them even though my favorite is always the beach. I've been to the mountains a few times and the views are breath-taking and you can find amazing things there. I love the beach but the only thing I hate about it is the people around, even though that doesn't change my love for the sea, for the sand, the breeze, the palm trees, all of that is heaven to me. I've managed to find beaches that aren't that crowded so I can enjoy even more my visit.
Posted by felabruno on 08-17-2017
True indeed. Mountains are more beautiful than the beaches. However, given a choice, I will prefer to go to the beaches instead of mountains. I live in a country that is home of Mount Everest, Annapurna and many other world tallest mountains. sadly, there are no seas. I have seen mountains but in order to see a beach, I will have to travel to another country.
Posted by vinaya on 08-21-2017
I can't agree or disagree. Though i like both the scenery, and i agree with what you stated , but all i can see is that both are beautiful. I can't even dare to compare them .For me both reflect a beauty, and wherever you are , I'm sure you will enjoy your trip. It's enough for me to feel calm and relax whenever i come to any of those sight. When you're in the beach you hear the waves .In the mountain you hear the wind and the leaves . Those are enough to think that each has there own relaxing purposes.
Posted by PLScloni on 08-26-2017
I don't think it's fair to compare, since they are both beautiful in different ways and appeal to different types of people, but I myself do also prefer mountains as well. Beaches are nice to look at too, but I'm just not that into it since most of the time it has a lot of the aspects I'm not particularly fond about such as high heat, sand, and salt water. I like mountains because I prefer stepping on grass than I do sands, but admittedly I would only really prefer to look at mountains and not be on it, because being that high up would be scary to me. Just on looks alone, I'd go with mountains as well, but just as personal preference.
Posted by Wubwub on 08-27-2017
That's true. I find mountains very pretty, however, I cannot compare mountains with beaches because we don't have beaches here. I live in a land locked country. I will have to travel to another country to see a beach. Even though I live in a mountainous country, I don't live beneath the mountains. However, I have traveled to mountains many times and the mountains are wonderful.
Posted by vinaya on 03-09-2018
I will say it's depends on one's preference. Personally, I am more comfortable around water, so mountains are never better or prettier to me than beaches. I love anything that deals with water more than rocks.

There is a kind of smell that beaches gives especially during sunny period. Mountains can never compare to how beautiful a beach looks like.
Posted by Heatman on 08-31-2017
I love the beach so the mountain it's a nono for me... I just found the sea so relaxing, the warm weather with the sun in your skin can be a really relaxing experience if you live in the city. Also I could last forever watching the sea and the waves in a nice, warm beach. the sunset in the beach is really mesmerizing, The mountain it's just a litle boring for me..
Posted by Pink_Turtle on 09-07-2017
The beaches are much prettier than mountains. The beaches can reflect different colours from the sky or environment to its surface water thereby making to be more beautiful.
Posted by babyright on 09-09-2017
I think it depends on the person which he/she likes for me ji like both of them the mountain and the beach. Sometimes I want to go to the mountain and camp there embrassing the fresh cool air. Also for beach I like to go in that place during summer to swim a lot. And play around with the water.
Posted by tophew on 09-11-2017
Mountain more beautiful than beaches,I don't think so.To me beaches are more beautiful especially during the Sumner holiday beaches takes a new dimension with all the lovely activities involved I love beaches more
Posted by lovely on 11-14-2017
I love the landscapes of mountains and in my opinion, for sure they are more beautiful than the beaches. In fact I also appreciate the landscapes of beaches, but surely I find the mountains more beautiful.
Posted by hermessantos on 01-29-2018
The attraction of the mountain for me are the edibles and the animals. I always look for berries and fruits in the trees. One time I chanced upon a mulberry with so many fruits that were violet which means they are ripe for the picking. My nephew and nieces were jubilant since that was the first time they had tasted mulberries. And with the animals, isn’t it awesome to see a live deer or even a bat? I prefer the mountain resort than the beach resort because of the things that I can find in the mountains.
Posted by Corzhens on 02-16-2018
When someone talks about mountains the images that get into my mind are the Himalayan mountains like Everest and Annapurna. I am from Nepal and most of the world's tallest mountains are in Nepal. To me mountains means the mighty Himalayas.
Posted by vinaya on 03-09-2018
I love mountains. I love to take pictures, and I just like the pines. However I also like beach, ocean especially, not just sparkling water lakes. I do own more than one kayaks. Philippines is a pleasant place to go to, however I’d alternatively stay closer to the Pacific.
Posted by jetselle on 11-21-2018
Mountains and beaches are beautiful on their own and no need to compare. I love to go to the mountains when I am being spontaneous about life, hiking is one of my form of exercises. Then, I want to go to the beach when it's summer because beaches glow up on that time of the year.

I agree with this. The view on a mountain is truly one to behold. You can see far miles and mile away. At the beach you can only see out to sea. On a mountain you can see out to other villages, towns and Countries. For example a mountain in Africa called Kilimanjaro mountain looks out to two countries, Kenya and Tanzania. I love the beach but in my opinion a mountain is so much more prettier than a beach.
