Sport and active holidays on Gran Canaria in and on the water
Enjoy your time on the sea. Water sports activities are very popular in Gran Canaria. From jet skis and banana boats to (wind) surfing, diving or snorkelling.

For experienced water sports enthusiasts we recommend the extraordinary flyboard flying, where you should have a good balance. The flyboard can be turned by your own balance, you feel like a dolphin in the water. Flyboard has become a trend in water sports.
To enjoy the beautiful bays in the southwest of Gran Canaria, the best way is to rent a kayak or a canoe and steer at your own speed over the sea. This way you will discover the beautiful coast of Gran Canaria.
Other possibilities are to go wakeboarding or waterskiing. These water sports are similar to the winter activities snowboarding and skiing. But even those who do not practice these sports in winter should not miss the fun on a wakeboard and water skiing.
The new and trendy Stand Up Paddling lets you get active in calm seas or light waves and is therefore easier than the classic surfing.
