Catamaran Sailing

Catamaran sailing is one of the loveliest ways of exploring the beautiful Costa Blanca coastline, and getting to see the mountains and natural reserves of the area. When on holiday in Benidorm some visitors are content just enjoying the city's excellent sandy beaches and great range of facilities they provide, and don't venture far from the heart of the action. With so many great activities and water sports available in the city, I can see why some visitors don't venture too far, but there is so much more to see within just a few kilometres of Benidorm.

Marco Polo Expediciones are based in Benidorm, and aside from a variety of other excellent activities, offer a choice of 2 catamaran sailing excursions. Their large, well equipped catamaran with its 120 square metres of sail skims across the ocean effortlessly and quietly, allowing you to fully appreciate the beauty of your surroundings.
