New water sports activities are introduced each year and this means active travellers are spoiled for choice when it comes to water-based adventures. Here are some of the world’s best water sports.
Often described as one of the most challenging and engaging water sports activities, wave riding on a surfboard is an experience like no other. As a water-bound activity that’s definitely not for the faint of heart, surfing is a relatively easy water sports variety to learn or pick up during a holiday at the Hard Rock Hotel Maldives or any other beach hotel.
Ranked among the most popular resort activities in Maldives, jet skiing has often been compared to riding a motorcycle in the ocean due to the thrills and spills of this high-speed ride. One can ride with an instructor or take the wheels on a tour of the coastline that’s likely to be a most unforgettable water-based excursion.
Using the power of the wind to propel oneself across the water, windsurfing is another fun and enjoyable activity that’s perfect for outdoorsy holidaymakers. While the basics of windsurfing may be harder to pick up than other similar water sports varieties, the effort is well worth it.
Marine life enthusiasts and those with a passion for underwater exploration will find no other activity as rewarding as scuba diving. Delving into the depths of the world’s most verdant coral reefs, scuba divers discover a submerged and magical world where shipwrecks and countless marine species co-exist in unimaginable harmony.
As a water sports variety that can be enjoyed as a group, bopping across the ocean on an inflated, banana-shaped boat is a great way to spend time with loved ones during a beach trip.
