There are many Benidorm Watersports you can take part in whilst on vacation. So we’ve narrowed down our favourites and all the info.
1. Jet Skiing
Out of all the things to do in Benidorm, renting jet skis will probably be the activity where you’ll laugh the most. You might even be smiling for the rest of the day like we were.
Out of all the Benidorm Watersports available, jet skiing is a MUST!!!
After getting the hang of it straight away, we rode along behind the instructor crashing up and down on the waves.
The instructors take you to the other side of the island, past Levante Beach, where you can get a glimpse of the cliff edges of the national park.
With breathtaking views and crystal blue sea, we couldn’t help but fall in love with Benidorm during this activity.
For our jet ski morning we used Carlos Watersports Benidorm!
2. Cable Skiing
We are not going to lie, cable skiing was pretty tricky to grasp but it’s definitely worth a go.
If you’re a master of balance with good levels of concentration, you’re probably made for this sport. There’s certainly plenty to think about when you’re new to it!
However, once you become proficient, we could imagine it being a really exciting and exhilarating watersport.
There’s only one place to book up for Cable skiing in Benidorm though and that’s Cable Ski Benidorm!
In the same area, towards the end of Levante Beach, they also do wake boarding and kite surfing. So you’ll never run out of things to do when it comes to Benidorm watersports!
3. Diving Or Snorkelling
Diving and snorkelling are definitely two of the most popular Benidorm watersports for most visitors.
Many people have a wonderful experience diving here because of the perfect oceanic climate of the Mediterranean Sea.
Also, the crystal clear water allows visibility for a fair few metres which is great for snorkelling.
Here, you can enjoy some of the most colourful underwater wildlife in Europe that will take you to another world.
The main dive sites are situated only 5 minutes away from the Benidorm harbour.
For our diving and snorkelling experience we used Diving Stones!
4. Sunrise Kayak Tour
The sunrise kayak tour was a really magical experience and definitely one of our favourite Benidorm watersports.
It was amazing to be a few of the only people awake and enjoying the pure peace, away from the crazy city that Benidorm can sometimes be.
We paddled out to a perfect spot to watch the sun come up and we were not disappointed. The rising sun, with its rays shimmering on the beautiful blue of the ocean was blissful.
If you prefer a quiet sunrise to a busy sunset, then we highly recommend trying the sunrise kayak tour whilst you’re in Benidorm.
For all your kayaking needs we can highly recommend Captain Kayak!
5. Stand Up Paddle Boarding
If you’ve never tried Stand Up Paddle Boarding before, then you’re in for a real treat.
We edged ourselves out into the water from the shores of Levante Beach and stayed low to the board until the ocean got deep enough to try and stand up.
The first few tries may be a bit wobbly, however once you’ve grasped the technique, you feel like you’re almost walking on water. It’s definitely a unique and brilliant experience.
We were the only people out at sea which gave us a great feeling of freedom and peace, away from everything and everyone.
With Benidorm Island in the distance and the people back at Levante just tiny dots, we paddled around the coast to Cala Almadraba.
It was a slight surprise when we reached Cala Almadraba as it seemed to be a nudist beach, so we didn’t stay for long!
