Fun in the Water

Barbados south and west coast offers the turquoise blue water of the Caribbean seas, a complete aquatic playground for all watersport activities. From scuba diving the reefs and exploring the numerous ship wrecks, snorkeling with the turtles, to the speed and thrill of Jet Skiing, the highs of Parasailing or simply lazing on the sun deck of a sailing catamaran. There is so much choice you never have to leave the cool crystal clear waters.

Windsurfers and Kite Surfers from around the globe head for Silver Sands in Christchurch, and surfers hunt for the perfect wave at Bathsheba on Barbados East Atlantic Coast. If you can not find the energy, watching can be just as much fun.
