Maintain the lockdown but open the beaches

We are suffering, all together, this long-lasting shutdown.

I’d like to put a proposal on the table: not to release the lockdown but only to make it more bearable for everybody.

Understanding that it is not possible to drive anywhere with the purpose to go to exercise and that you may only walk and work out, my feeling is that it might be possible to reopen public beaches for exercising, walking and swimming – observing, of course, social distancing in a more effective way than in public roads, as beaches and ocean are larger than walkways. 

Nobody can work out bringing a sun umbrella or towel, and parking at public beaches would remain not allowed.

I’d like that the government (that is acting very well, anyway) [think about] this proposal.
