Paddle Board in Javea

Paddle Board – My personal favorite! Paddle boarding is an amazing way to escape any form of hustle and bustle on dry land, by venturing out into the sea and just having some time with yourself. There’s something very special about paddling out into the open sea, with just you and the board… but you’ll have to find that out for yourself! This sport can be a little trickier to master than kayaking as it does require some sturdy balancing, however with a bit of practice you should be up and off in no time!

Wakeboard in Javea

Wakeboard – Multiple companies in Jávea offer wakeboarding trips in which the rider will stand on a short board with foot bindings and will be towed behind the back of a motor boat at high speeds, across its wake and for the more advanced, up off the crest of the wake in order to leave the water and perform aerial maneuvers. Once you get to grips with getting a grip, you’re going to fall in love with this sport… it just may take a few faceplants first! Read more about wakeboard in Javea

Kitesurfing in Javea

KiteSurfing – Kite surfing is debatably the trickiest activity on this list to do well. This activity is all about harnessing the power of the wind through a large parachute that is attached to you via a harness. You will also have a board similar to that of a wakeboard and will be propelled across the water’s surface at high speeds often being pulled up and out of the ocean enabling you to perform aerial tricks. Not one for the faint hearted! Read more about kitesurfing in Javea

Parasailing in Javea

Parasailing – Parasailing is one of the more leisurely activities on this list as it requires next to no effort! Essentially, you will be seated in a harness attached to a motor boat in front and a parachute to your back. As the boat picks up speed and the parachute catches the wind you will begin to be elevated out of the water and up into the air, enabling you to get some truly unique views of the surrounding coastline and sea.

Flyboarding in Javea

FlyBoard – Prepare to be amazed! FlyBoarding is a MUST TRY activity. You may have seen short videos of it online or perhaps on TV, but neither do it justice. In FlyBoarding, a rider will be strapped onto a board that is connected to a watercraft via a long hose. Water is then forced up through the hose under huge pressure, and out through the jet nozzles located on the underside of the board. This provides an immense amount of thrust that can propel the rider up to 70 feet into the air or to dive headfirst through the water like a dolphin!

Sailing in Javea

Sailing utilizes the wind on either kites, sales or wing sails in order to propel the boat forwards. This activity can prove difficult for beginners, but once you get the knack, sailing is known to be a very relaxing activity. As you glide through the ocean, with no noise pollution from would-be boat engines… a picture of serenity and tranquility! Read more about sailing in Javea
