For the more adventurous thrill seekers, there is parasailing - where you are strapped into a seat which is suspended from a large parachute and carried along which attached to a power boat. If flying along on your own is a bit too much of a challenge, you can fly with a friend and even up to groups of five.



Port and Marina 

As with most well appointed marinas, the port attracts many observers as well as those active on boats or enjoying water sports. There are many excellent bars, restaurants and clubs, some are open the year round and offer a wonderful setting for lunch, 'tapas', dinner, cocktails or after dark clubbing. Dinner on one of the restaurants' outside terraces with views out across the moored boats onto the horizon of the Mediterranean towards North Africa is a delightful experience.  There is a office near the entrance of the port for booking watersport activities.
