Vacationing by the beach is truly an unbeatable experience. Whether you’re travelling with your partner, your family, or even solo, you want to make sure that you make the most of your time at the sea.
Here are a few of the most unforgettable coastal vacation experiences out there that you could consider adding to your itinerary for your next trip.
Rent a Yacht
If you’re looking for a luxury experience for your next holiday, a yacht might be right up your alley. The views are spectacular, the trips are smooth and you can enjoy refreshments, drinks and socialising with your family and friends right on board.
One of the most beautiful vacations you could take is in Greece, where you can rent a yacht with 12Knots to explore all the fabulous sights there are to see.
If you enjoy the boating life, consider throwing a wakeboard and some life jackets into the mix to bring some adrenaline to your vacation. This is your ultimate coastal vacation experience! In this water sport, a rider will stand upright on a wakeboard and be towed behind a motorboat at awesome speeds.
Not only is this activity a whole lot of fun for the entire family, but it can be a great worm of exercise too. Turn your time into a competition of who can stay upright for the longest – loser buys a round of drinks.
Anyone with an appreciation for nature and a love of the ocean needs to go snorkelling at least once in their lifetime. This is a relatively affordable ocean activity compared to some others, and you can see some truly phenomenal sights.
Of course, the best places to go snorkelling are the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and Maui in Hawaii, so if you find yourself vacationing near those spots, it will be well worth the trip!
Where snorkelling is an affordable and easy activity for anyone to partake in, scuba diving is just the opposite. Scuba diving requires training and certifications, and these along with the equipment you’ll need to hire or purchase can be very expensive.
However, if you have the money to spend, the experience is well worth the cost. Diving will allow you to explore the depths of the ocean and experience a completely new world. The sights you will see are unbeatable.
Plus, once your certifications are complete, you’ll be allowed to scuba anywhere in the world, making it a gift to yourself that will keep on giving throughout your future travels.
If you don’t mind faceplanting into the waves, try your hand at surfing for something different and fun on your next holiday.
The sport can be rather taxing, as it takes a lot of core strength and good balance to conquer. This makes taking a few surfing lessons a great active addition to your itinerary – you’ll be having a load of fun but taking care of your body and your figure at the same time!
