Going on a summer vacation does not always mean sitting long hours at the beach reading books and sunbathing. On the contrary, taking a break by the ocean can be a quite extraordinary experience. For those who do not live near water, a vacation offers a rare opportunity to enjoy sports and water activities. If you are curious about what a vacation at sea might offer you, read on and at the end of this article, you will be booking your flights.
Let's start with the obvious. Swimming While it may sound boring and mundane, swimming actually activates almost every muscle in the body from the knees up. And you don't have to swim using the same style all the time. Since, after all, it's your vacation, we recommend you get swimming goggles. Being able to observe the ocean floor while nothing makes the experience much more enjoyable.
Snorkeling is a favorite among vacation lovers. And for good reason. First, it is not necessary to have experience to enjoy snorkeling. Since our bodies naturally float in water, it is relatively easy to remain on the surface of the water. When using a snorkel, you can breathe while partially submerged. Actually, it's so easy that kids can do it. It is one of the rare activities in which you can involve your children. This makes snorkeling a great family activity that anyone can enjoy, regardless of their age or ability to swim.
Second, and more importantly, they will leave you breathless (breathless, do you understand?) For the incredible underwater views. While the surface may seem calm and not so interesting, there is a thriving life just below. We recommend going even one step further and get a full-face snorkel mask that offers a 180 degree view. It is also much more suitable for beginners and children, since you can also breathe through your nose, as you would on land.
Diving has the advantage over snorkeling in the sense that it does not need to be near the surface to breathe. This will allow you to get close to something you might want to see, touch or touch. However contradictory it may seem, it is not necessary to know how to swim to dive. Swimming is almost impossible underwater when using the complete equipment. Instead, you'll be rowing.
While it may sound scary to some people, diving is really easy to do. During the initial diving lesson, the instructor will be by your side all the time. After you have passed your first lesson, you are free to do tourist dives up to 16 feet deep. But don't let this put you off. The most beautiful views (yes, the ones you see on large posters and archive photos) are at depths of less than 10 feet! If you want to explore the underwater world, Scuba is the way to go.
Unlike the three that we mentioned above, the paddleboard is performed on water. For this, you will have to rent a paddle board, which is a bit wider but shorter than a traditional surfboard. On the surface of the water, you should paddle with your hands to move. You can do it while kneeling or lying on the board.
Recently, a new variation of the paddleboard has become popular and is the stand up paddleboard. In this case, you can use a palette and a row while standing. People find that this way of sightseeing offers better views and better control in general for the inexperienced.
With the paddleboard, you can go where your imagination takes you. You can visit wild and inaccessible beaches, explore caves or even use it as a means of transportation to some extent. While some places used to have swimmer beaches that only experienced swimmers could reach, more and more surfers join them.
Body Surfing is very popular due to a couple of reasons. First, you don't need any, and I mean, no equipment for it. And second, you just need some water and some waves. It is perfect for people who have never tried surfing but always wanted to do it. Virtually & # 39; you ride the waves & # 39; Just using your body The trick is to catch the top of the wave and straighten as much as possible. When the wave starts to break, just turn in the direction and voila … you're surfing.
Unlike the other activities listed here, this is a bit more difficult to achieve and requires a little more strength and coordination. That is why we recommend this only to people who have confidence in water and swimming.
So that was it for now. What are you waiting for? Book those vacations. Admit it, you need it.
