The West Country is the perfect place for all kinds of watersports and activities, including surfing, sailing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, waterskiing and kitesurfing. There are lessons available for all ages and abilities, so you can have a go at something new or practice and improve your skills. Away from the water you will find tennis clubs, excellent golf courses, leisure centres and miles of coast path to discover.
Throughout the summer, there are competitions, races and regattas which are great fun, whether you are taking part or spectating.
From first timers to seasoned paddlers, the West Country is a great place to try one of the fastest growing water sports, stand up paddle boarding (SUP), which gives you the chance to get a unique perspective of the West Country coastline at a slower pace.
Lessons for beginners are available and, once you’ve got the hang of it, you can take a guided tour, visiting stretches of coast only accessible by water and perhaps even see seals and dolphins as you paddle through crystal clear waters.
