Saint LuciaTop Destinations for Water Sports

By Roberto Wooten

 Travel Tips     

An ideal vacation for many people will be an ocean shore nearby with sandy beaches and a warm and comfortable climate. A great way to remove yourself from the daily routine and to take that much needed rest is by going on a vacation. Here are some number one hot spots for those who are water sports enthusiasts and enjoy water skiing, surfing, sailing or variety of other water sports.

The tropical island of St. Lucia, which is 27miles long and 14 miles wide, is a dream come true for many sailors and water sports enthusiasts. If you are planning to visit this island then you should set your sails and prepare your body, mind and soul for absolute adventure. For each and every type of explorer the western coastline presents exciting adventures and anchorages. You can easily sail the west coast till Rodney bay and then enjoy the beach on Pigeon Island National Park.

After that you can sail to Soufrière and then visit the Mineral baths, the Botanical Gardens, the volcano and the Diamond Falls. You can then drop the anchor on a magnificent deserted beach at Ansa Cochon. This magnificent deserted beach was made just for snorkeling. You can enjoy the afternoon by continuing your snorkeling at Coral Gardens or enjoy it on a beach at Jalousie Plantation Resort.

The "Soupbowl" at Bathsheba, Barbados has attracted many water sports enthusiasts over the years. Champion players of water sports and many water sports enthusiasts come to the "Soupbowl" to spend their training vacation and to enjoy the warm, friendly atmosphere and the uncrowded waves. Bathsheba is mainly famous for its big thundering barrels and fast walls.

Both the locals and the overseas surfers have enjoyed surfing at the "Soupbowl" at Bathsheba for many years. In November this charming fishing village turns into a hive of activities because it is at this time that the International Surfing Championships takes place as it is at this time that the waves are at their best.

There are also other sites that have good waves for surfing, like, St.Vincent and Lagoon Bay. Although the windward side of the Shipping bay also has good waves for surfing, it is definitely not for the faint hearted. Another good surfing site is on the East coast of Trinidad called the Ministers Bay. The Caribbean Sea doesn't disappoint the enthusiastic surfers who wait from sunrise to sunset on the boards for the break.

Water Ski Magazine has rated the water skiing at the Ski Paradise, Acapulco, in Mexico as the 'finest site for skiing in the world'. Even if you are a beginner or you just want to sharpen your skills, you will have a great time at this resort. This Ski resort is a vital water skiing and fun holidays destination as it includes instructions from famous guest coaches and good accommodation. The Ski Paradise will make any visit to its resort an experience to remember with its vast services and activities. Another amazing factor about the Ski Paradise is that it also caters to the sport fishing, golf and tennis.

Thus, in the end we can say that these are not the only destinations in the world for water sports. It does not matter whether you live on the west coast or the east coast; there are plenty of other great water sports destinations too. All you have to do is find a nice affordable vacation and then enjoy your adventure holidays and your water sports to the fullest.
