Water Sports Adventure Vacations

As you plan your vacation, imagine a warm breeze sweeping across a sandy beach as the waves crash ashore.  Either this or a resort by a lake is what a water sports enthusiast wants.  There are, of course, many such places, but below are some places you should consider when taking adventure vacations.

St. Lucia Water Sports

Fun VacationsIf your love of water sports centers on sailing, there is no better place to go than the tropical Island of St. Lucia. Located on the eastern Caribbean bordering on the open Atlantic Ocean, it is a place of dreams.  On the western side of the island, you can sail all the way to Rodney Bay where you will find Pigeon Island National Park.  It has an amazing beach.  There is plenty of nightlife in Castries, the capital of St. Lucia, where you can enjoy fabulous meals and celebrate with spirits as you discuss the day’s sailing and plan tomorrow’s adventure.

Adventure VacationsA great option would be to sail to Soufriere on the west coast and St. Lucia’s original capital.  Here you can view the Pitons which are two large volcano plugs.  Volcano plugs are land forms which are created when magna hardens within a volcano vent.  Over time, the surrounding land erodes away leaving dramatic formations.  You can also visit Soufriere Estate, also known as Diamond Estate, and its botanical gardens, sulphur baths as well as Diamond Falls.  Also do not miss the dark sand beach of Anse Cochan.  It is only easily accessible by boat, but the snorkeling is spectacular.

You might want to spend the night (or several) at Jalousie Plantation Resort which is situated between the two Pitons. You could have a romantic night there under the stars or enjoy the wonderful restaurants as you take in the magnificent views of the Caribbean.

Barbados Fun Vacations

Intelligent TravelAnother great water sports destination is Barbados.  You will want to visit the “Soup Bowl” at Bathsheba whose name comes from the foaming surf found here.  It attracts surfers from all over the world and has been the host of many championships.  The water is warn, the atmosphere friendly, and, despite its fame, the waters are usually uncrowded.  It you are looking for thundering barrels and fast walls then this is the place to come.  Bathsheba is really just a fishing village but especially in November when the surfing is at its prime, surfers gather and championships are held.  You should check into renting local houses and mix with the local people to get the true flavor of Barbados.

Acapulco Adventure Vacations
