Watersports Activities

The island of Barbados is considered to be the Caribbean's most beautiful and unspoilt island. Evidence of such is seen in the many beaches that surround and grace the island.

 

Barbados' east coast is on the Atlantic side of the ocean and is home to some of the most magnificent waves that are more than suitable for surfers. Here is where local and international surfers gather to catch the best waves or take part in the annual surfing championships regularly held at Barbados' 'Soup Bowl'.

 

The pristine looking beaches on Barbados' west coast augurs well for those who want to enjoy a day of swimming, sunbathing, watersports, relaxing, or simply 'people watching'. One such activity that is known to be a great family activity is swimming with turtles. On the island of Barbados, swimming with turtles is a pleasant adventure for you and the family. Especially the kids are thrilled by such an experience as the up-close contact is quite memorable.

 

The hawksbill and leatherback sea turtles call Barbados home and are readily seen along the island's west coast as this is where they do their feeding and nesting. Due to the calmness of these west coast waters and the friendliness of the sea turtles, visitors are able to swim freely with them.

 

Apart from swimming in the beautiful warm waters, there are a number of other watersports activities you can try while in Barbados. Why not try windsurfing - sunfish sailing, parasailing, snorkelling, jet skiing, riding on a banana boat with the kids, boogie boarding, knee boarding, body surfing or Hobie Cat rides?
