5 water sports you need to try this summer

Beat the heat with some adrenalin.

Summer has hit with full speed and the beaches have never been more crowded – the perfect excuse to enjoy a change (kind of) scenery and do some water sports.

The question is, where should you begin? We’ve got you covered. Here are five of Malta’s favourite water sports.

1. Kayaking

Whether you’re alone or with a friend, kayaking is always a fun experience. You can go freestyle or join a group to make new friends. Either way, you’re in for a fun experience while also working on your upper body strength.

2. Scuba Diving

The Maltese archipelago is known for its cool diving spots. From shipwrecks to coral paradises and rock formations, there’s plenty to see. Enrol yourself in a scuba diving school and enjoy exploring the fauna, flora, and history that lie in our waters. 

3. Snorkelling

If you’re less adventurous but would still like to explore the deep blue, grab a snorkel and goggles and head over to less crowded beaches such as Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq, Għar Lapsi, Fomm ir-Riħ, and Coral Lagoon. I recommend swimming a bit out from the shore as fewer people equals more marine life.

4. Jet Skiing

You can rent these from the beach and go your own way, or you could sign up for a tour and explore the Mediterranean waters like never before. A jet ski safari will take you into hidden caves and teach you new aspects of our history, all while showing you a good time.

5. Flyboarding

Do you want to fly? Well, you can’t (sorry), but flyboarding brings you pretty close. Gear up and connect to a jet ski and use the water power to fly up to 50m in the air. It may take a while to get used to the manoeuvres, but who cares? The sky’s the limit!
