Happy Easter from World Leisure Holidays
When we think of an island holiday, we conjure up images of relaxing alongside the pool or unwinding on the sandy beach, doing both while soaking up the beautiful warm sun with a delicious cocktail in hand. But that’s not where the fun ends! Almost every island destination has incredible water activities for you to try, whether it’s stand-up paddling on the calm blue waters or something more adrenaline-pumping such as jet skiing. While there are numerous water sports on offer at an island destination, here are some of the most popular ones:
Paddle through calm seas and lagoons while exploring hidden coves and beaches on an island adventure. Kayaking is great for everyone and it allows you to leisurely explore the coastline in an actively fun way. Seated in a kayak, you use paddles to move through the water. You can enjoy this activity by yourself, or if the kayak allows it, with a partner. Make it more fun by racing with your friends or family to a goalpost.
Due to the increasing popularity of stand-up paddling, it has become more common for water enthusiasts to take up this sport. This type of paddling is a fun way to go sightseeing and enjoy relaxing on the board while paddling with your hands, or by standing up straight and paddling with a paddle. It offers the perfect balance of action and relaxation and makes for very cool photos! Enjoy the scenery while getting a workout by standing on a board and paddling through the water.
Thrill seekers will find jet skiing exhilarating as this extreme sport involves bouncing over the water at a fast speed. Getting on the waves in a jet ski is an experience that’s perfect for those who enjoy the adrenaline rush of riding the waves. Although jet skiing doesn’t require a lot of experience, it’s still important to wear a life jacket. Jet skiing is definitely a great mood booster, so just hop on and have fun.
It is no question that your island holiday is going to have a spectacular coastal view, and one way to fully appreciate the beauty is by parasailing. Get a bird’s eye view of the island and its surroundings by soaring through the air with a parachute while a speedboat tows you. It will definitely be an unforgettable experience that takes you out of your comfort zone! Don’t be afraid to look down, you might catch a glimpse of turtles or dolphins swimming around.
There are more than enough activities for you to do to explore the beach and ocean from above, but what about exploring what the ocean has to offer below? Snorkelling is an underwater activity that allows you to float around the surface of the water while you explore the world of aquatic life. Equipped with breathing tubes, masks and swim fins, you’ll be amazed at how many different types of sea creatures and corals you can spot. Take your time and truly revel in the beauty of the ocean world.
An island holiday offers a staggering variety of water sports. It is the perfect opportunity to try new things and have an adventure of a lifetime. Take full advantage of the beauty and fun on your next island adventure and explore these top water sports!
