Fishing trips, Dolphin-spotting cruises, Beach Volleyball, Cycling, Horse Riding and Jogging are the most common activities on these beaches that are quite popular for many years now. People even enjoy lying down on the sands where the sea waves lap on their feet. But adventurous water sports have become popular among the vacationers for the last few years. One of the best beach destinations in Asia, Goa has a number of popular beaches that are ideal for water sports to make your holidays thrilling.

Several beaches, like Bogmalo, where the waters are not too deep, are considered great for swimming. Even those who are not that daring, can enjoy dinghy sailing. This type of sailing in the waters is quite relaxing and gives you an opportunity to explore the marine life closely. Some other more advenurous sports are:

Jet Skiing A water scooter ride with a jet ski equipment of around 100-135 horsepower.

Beach Parasailing A recreational activity where a person is towed behind a boat while attached to a specially designed parachute, known as a parasail. As the boat drives off, the person tied to the boat starts flying high in the air.

Water Skiing Another adventurous sport where an individual is pulled behind a motor boat on a water body wearing one or more skis. The ski keeps the person skimming on the surface of the water.

Wind Surfing A surface water sport using a wind surfboard, also commonly called a sailboard, powered by a single sail.

The long coastal areas of Goa offer various activities for all age groups. The ideal season to indulge in these activities is between October and May.
