Rent jetskis and enjoy sunshine and seawater spray. You can take part in organized tours or explore on your own. Whatever you choose, you’ll have the chance to get close up to the sea.


Fly over the ocean like a superhero with flyboarding. The board uses high-powered water jets to let you control where you’re going. It also looks incredibly awesome.
