Holiday Fun in the Water

Posted on Posted in Travel

Many overseas holiday destinations offer  different kinds of water activities to help you enjoy your holiday there. If you are young and fit you are sure to enjoy the more active ones such as white water rafting or diving. If you are a senior, you might be happier with the boat cruises to see the sights, or even to go fishing. But the first thing you need to do is settle into your accommodation; then let the fun begin.

There are any number of beaches in exotic island destinations, so you’ll probably want to go swimming, surfing and exploring on some of them – or maybe all of them. But don’t forget the fun you can have in places such as water parks and resorts where there are many water slides the children are sure to love . Some of those for adults can be very scary fun. At the end of a long day there, you can do a more relaxing activity such as tubing down a slow moving river or just enjoying the scenery while you sit outside with your drink.

White water rafting is another water sport to enjoy in some countries. Just make sure you don’t go in the rainy season – if there is one –  or when there are likely to have been floods. Otherwise, it’s a great day on the river and you can choose varying degrees of difficulty.

Dive tours are another feature of many destinations. You can be taken out to special dive areas or to  an anchored raft to suit up and dive down to see a wreck. This is not for those who have never dived. Another ocean going fun thing to do is walking on the bottom of the ocean in a diving suit. You don’t even get wet, but there are many amazing sights to see on the ocean floor. There is an age limit to doing this because very young kids would get frightened. Besides that, the equipment is sized for adults and older teens.

A simple cruise along the beaches is a nice, relaxing way to end a day filled with activity. You can see many amazing sights such as waterfalls, temples, hidden beaches and wonderful scenery, not to mention dolphins. Be sure to allow time to enjoy the scenic beauty of your chosen holiday destination.


Of course there are many other exciting things to do on, in or under the water. You can jet ski, canoe, kayak, Para-sail, fish and so on because if there is one thing island destinations are not short of it is water.  Once you’ve done all the water activities, you might want to start on the land-based ones. It would be a shame to go home without seeing at least some of the amazing sights from volcanos to caves and caverns, temples, rainforests, mountains, wild-life and much, much more.
