Are you craving the thrill of an aquatic adventure, but unsure which water sport aligns with your energy levels and abilities? Tired of hotels that only provide you with the basic swimming pool and gym amenities and keen to try something new? Here at Club Med, we have just the thing for you — a wide array of water sports suited for every skill level and preference.

Our all-inclusive beach and sun holiday packages come with plenty of water sports included, but you can always opt to explore even more paid options depending on your resort location. With so many water sports to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start. To help you find your perfect match, we've put together a list of water sports organised by difficulty level, so go ahead and dive right in to discover the one for you!


If you're seeking an enjoyable aquatic activity to explore while on a relaxing vacation and want something that demands minimal physical exertion and is easy to master, look no further than these three fantastic beginner-friendly options:

1) Stand-up paddleboarding

Embark on a serene journey atop tranquil waters as you master the art of stand-up paddleboarding. This low-impact activity is a great way to get some exercise and enjoy the views at the same time as it engages your core muscles and offers a leisurely way to explore coastal wonders.

2) Kayaking

For a delightful blend of adventure and relaxation, hop into a kayak and navigate through calm waters or gentle river currents. Kayaking provides an excellent opportunity to connect with nature and appreciate its serene beauty. Plus, kayaking is the perfect sport to exercise your arms and core muscles, enjoy the scenery and see some amazing wildlife no matter whether you’re going solo or heading out as a group.

3) Snorkelling

Snorkelling is an easy-to-learn activity that promises an enchanting experience for nature enthusiasts of all ages. All you need is a mask, snorkel, and fins, and you're ready to explore the reefs and marine life. Unlike scuba diving, snorkelling is typically done in shallow waters, so it’s a great option for individuals who are afraid of the deep ocean or aren’t experienced swimmers.


For those eager to dive into a more exhilarating water sports experience, we have several options that will put your body to the test while still giving you the chance to take in the view! Take a plunge into these three options that promise a bit more challenge and excitement:

1) Sailing

Harness the power of the wind as you embark on an exhilarating sailing experience and challenge your skills while navigating across glistening waters. Sailing is a great way to get some exercise and enjoy the wind in your hair. It can be done solo or with a group, and sailing lessons for all skill levels are also included if you sign up for our all-inclusive holidays depending on your resort location.

2) Waterskiing*

If you crave a rush of adrenaline, waterskiing is the sport for you. Glide across the water's surface, towed by a speedboat, and experience the thrill of speed and skill. Waterskiing is a fantastic challenge for the body and requires a combination of strength, balance, and coordination.

*At extra cost and available in selected resorts

3) Kite-surfing*

Kite-surfing is a challenging but rewarding water sport that combines elements of surfing, windsurfing, and sailing. Much like waterskiing, it also requires plenty of strength, endurance, balance, and coordination to control and steer the kite while navigating through the water.

*At extra cost and available in selected resorts


Are you a water sports enthusiast with an insatiable appetite for adventure? Quench your thirst for excitement and get ready to test your skill with these water sports:

1) Jet skiing*

For adrenaline junkies seeking high-speed thrills, jet skiing is the ultimate choice. Zoom across the water's surface and experience an exhilarating sense of freedom and excitement on the back of a jet ski as you race the waves.

*At extra cost and available in selected resorts

2) Scuba diving*

Scuba diving offers a surreal encounter with marine life and the chance to explore captivating underwater landscapes up close. Club Med also offers scuba diving packages so you can pick up a new skill when you sign up. While scuba diving packages may cost extra and you’ll also need to take a scuba diving certification course before you can go diving, it's sure to be an experience you'll never forget.

*At extra cost and available in selected resorts

3) Surfing*

Conquer the waves and ride the surging tides in an adrenaline-pumping surfing adventure. Surfing is a challenging but rewarding water sport that's perfect for those who love the ocean. All you need is a surfboard and some waves, and you're ready to skim your way across the ocean’s magnificence.

*At extra cost and available in selected resorts

Whether you're a novice or an experienced water sports enthusiast, our resorts provide expert instruction, top-notch equipment, and picturesque locations to ensure your water sports journey is both safe and unforgettable. So, if you're ready to embark on an extraordinary aquatic adventure, forget your usual seaside hotels, book an all-inclusive vacation with Club Med today instead!
