After a night on the town during your Benidorm holiday, what better way to clear the cobwebs and get the blood pumping than taking to the skies for a parasailing boat ride. Of all the city’s thrilling water activities, parasailing and jet ski rides are the most popular among holidaymakers. Both activities require little physical effort yet offer adrenaline fuelled fun that certainly does clear the head, and leaves you refreshed for the day’s adventures to come. Benidorm is undoubtedly one of Spain’s top destinations for fun attractions and activities, be it in the air, on land or in the water.
There are a selection of adventure activity and tour operators based in the city, as well as in some of the smaller towns nearby. Established in Benidorm for over 30 years, Carlos Water Sports have outlets on both of the city’s main beaches. Their main office is in the harbour area next to Poniente Beach (look for the green star) and their open air office is located on Levante Beach in a canary yellow tent with a yellow star. The company operate their activities from mid May to the end of October, from 10:00 – 20:00 daily.
You can enjoy your adventure from either of Carlos’ offices, and their specially adapted platform boats have a capacity for 10 persons so friends and family can come along to watch. Flights can be taken either solo or in tandem (a favourite choice with stag & hen parties) Once the boat has reached a safe location, it’s time to put on your life jacket and get strapped into the harness. After a brief safety talk and explanation on the methods of take off and landing, you will take to the skies for your thrilling flight along the picturesque coastline.
