People who live near the sea are happier than those who live inland. Researchers looked at the happiness and income of 26,000 people. People who lived within one kilometer of the coast were 22 per cent less likely to have mental health problems. People over 50 kilometers from the coast had more mental health problems.

A researcher said living near the coast helped to protect people from mental health problems. Living on the coast could help poor and rich people. Another researcher said we needed to use spaces in towns and cities better. He said the coast is for everyone. He said we should stop damaging "our fragile coastal environments".
