WATER SKIING IN BARCELONA AND MORE
A Summer trip to Barcelona is the perfect opportunity to combine sightseeing with some fun activities by the water. The Mediterranean sea offers lots of opportunities for sunbathing, relaxing by the beach, going sailing and also practicing all kind of fun water sports.
But while some of these Barcelona beach activities can be easily played by ear (like let’s go to the beach in the afternoon to freshen up after all the morning walking around), other need to be planned ahead of time to avoid disappointments: the activity might be booked up for your available time, or you might have another plan for precisely the time they are running the activity. So if water-based sports are your kind of thing, make sure to spice up your Barcelona trip adding them to your schedule. Today we’ll help you navigating the local offer.
These are the best Barcelona water sports:
Paddle surf and kayak
AND BONUS! What about water skiing in Barcelona?
Water skiing sounds like the perfect alternative to snow skiing when the Summer arrives. However, it is a sport that requires being in good shape and having very good balance skills. It is not something that can be offered to anyone wanting to try once, but rather a sport that you need to practice regularly to be able to master it. If you aren’t new to water skiing, though, you can head to the Canal Olimpic in Castelldefels to practice it (you might be required to show some kind of license to prove you know what you are doing). The canal can be reached by the L95 suburban bus departing from Plaça Catalunya (as the Castelldefels train station is too far from it).
