Whatever the weather in Barcelona there is always a watersport that will appeal to you. During the summer months a good way to cool down is by heading to the beach and trying out some of the many watersports Barcelona has to offer. Be it action or relaxation, there is something for you. Here we have compiled a list of some of the best watersports for you and the family to enjoy!
For a great base from which to enjoy all the watersporting activities Barcelona has to offer, find yourself a beachside apartment in Barceloneta.
|Barcelona has beautiful scenery and therefore a ride on a Jet Ski is a fantastic way of seeing the city from a different perspective but with more action! It’s energetic, fast and entertaining. “Barcelona Jet Ski” offer you the opportunity to have a thrilling experience with the comfort of professional instructors. They even offer so called “Jet safaris” where you can go on a tour with the Jet Skis. For more information take a look at our blog.You can get 10% off this amazing thrill with the Oh-Barcelona discount pack.|
|Unlike sunbathing, surfing is one of the few sports where bad weather can help actually you. (Not that you are likely to see this in Barcelona!) So no matter what time of year surfing is a great sport to try out. Surfing in Barcelona is a popular sport, and any one can take part. It’s fun and exhilarating. Around the Barceloneta area it’s very easy to find somewhere to hire a surf board and wet suit for as little as around €20 per hour. Take a look at a map for the locations of surf shops where you can hire equipment.|
|Kayaking is one of the most popular sports in Barcelona and is very easy and relaxing! You can have the pleasure of keeping fit whilst unwinding and looking at the view!
Some tours give you the opportunity to explore dark caves! The best place to partake in this exciting activity is definitely north of Barcelona, tucked away in many small caves along the breath taking coast of Costa Brava. Day excursions or multi-day trip side trips take you 1 hour outside of bustling Barcelona (either by train or some companies arrange transport to and from) to the tranquil out of the way villages and gorgeous crystal clear waters of Costa Brava offering an amazing sea kayaking adventure. Interestingly, in some kayaking excursions, you will enter dark coves whereby you will be given lanterns to help you navigate through the obscurity and see the natural beauty within.
