While suntanning on the beach or going for a leisurely swim is an equally viable way to spend your vacation, sometimes you just want to get the blood pumping a bit. Whether you’re an adrenaline junky or just crave a new experience, there are plenty of exciting water sports to try on your next beach vacation. Allow us to introduce a few of them to you.
Ever dreamed about having the power of flight? Parasailing provides as close an experience as possible by allowing you to soar through the air and enjoy the beautiful sights from an all-new angle. Parasailing involves wearing something akin to a parachute that is then attached to the back of a boat. As the boat tows you along, the parachute catches the wind and allows you to be dragged through the air! While you’re up there, you’ll experience a unique sense of serenity as you calmly cruise along the clouds.
Surfing is already a cool sport, but you spend a lot of time waiting for that perfect wave, only to end up back on shore before you know it. Wing foiling provides the fun of surfing but without being at the mercy of the waves. Instead, you’ll have a handheld pair of wings that catch the window and allow you to sail where you please. With the fin-like foil under your board, the ride is incredibly smooth. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, wing foiling will allow to catch some incredible air off waves and achieve surprising speeds when the weather conditions are just perfect.
While slower pace, kayaking is a beloved water sport for a reason. Not only is it a fun way to get around while sightseeing, but you’ll get an incredible aerobic workout in the process. Kayaking down rivers or along the coast will provide you with a whole new perspective and make you feel just a bit closer to nature.
If you want some true sightseeing, then an exciting water sport to try on your next beach vacation is scuba diving. Just under the water’s surface is a vibrant, colorful ecosystem of flora and fauna. From coral reefs to forests of seaweed, you’ll immerse yourself in a seemingly alien world occupied by some of the most creative creatures Earth has to offer.
