We opted to try the parasailing but it is dependent on the wind and we had to come back the next day when the wind was hopefully calmer and then we traveled down the coast approximately 1 mile, a welcome free boat trip. There was quite a long wait for this ride, we were taken by banana boat (another freebie) and transferred to another boat where we collected by the parasailing boat and there were 15 of us all doing the same activity, all-in-all you probably need to allow three hours for this ride, from the time of booking.

We also tried the jet-boat, which was a 20-minute trip in a 400 bhp speedboat, not for the feint hearted! There are no seat belts just a rail to hold onto, which you must do otherwise you’ll fall out! Very fast and great fun but a little scary

Pictures (on CD-ROM) are also available at 15 Euro’s. Open 10-6 during the summer and receive a 10% discount when booking online in advance.
