What water sports in Ibiza can you try?
Ibiza is a small island in the Mediterranean and part of the chain of islands that make up the Balearics. As you might imagine, that means there’s plenty of opportunity to get in the water and enjoy coastal life. With miles upon miles of endless sandy beaches stretching as far as the eye can see, leading you from one amazing holiday resort to the next, you won’t find many places with more water sport action than right here in Ibiza!
So, if you’re in the market to try your hand at water sports activities on your next trip, you’re probably wondering what it’s all about. There are several different types of water sports, but the most popular and fun you’ll be able to try when you’re thinking about what to do in Ibiza can be found below.
Wind water sports
● Windsurfing, where you stand on a surfboard with a sail attached, using the direction of the wind to surf your way along the shore
● Parasailing, where you’re attached to the back of a speedboat wearing a parachute on your back, floating up in the air and taking in the breath-taking views as the boat picks up speed
● Sailing, where you sit in a small boat and turn the sail with the changing wind to explore Ibiza’s wild and wonderful unspoiled coastal areas.
Boat and board water sports
● Sailing, as mentioned above
● Surfing, which uses a combination of the ocean’s waves and your quick-thinking to skim the waves that sweep you back to shore
● Paddle-boarding, which is where you stand on a surfboard in much calmer waters, using a long paddle to gently propel yourself in the direction you want to go. It’s great for relaxation, exploring the rugged coastline and fantastic for your core strength and stomach muscles too!
● Freediving, which is where you simply dive under the surface and see as much of the diverse seabed as you can before coming back up for air
● Snorkelling, which is where you use a snorkel to breathe just beneath the surface of the water
● Scuba-diving, which requires a lesson or two from a qualified instructor before you can take to the water, but also means you can get to new, unexplored depths and really get up close and personal with all the hidden treasures deep within the Mediterranean.
