Malta is known for its breath-taking views, and what better way to experience them than up in the air? Parasailing is a very popular activity that offers an exhilarating adrenaline rush whilst floating 150 meters above sea level. It’s offered at many resorts over the island, with one being at Supreme Water Sports at Triq Spinola.

Stand Up Paddleboards From Ramla Bay

Stand up paddleboarding, or SUP, is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Not only is it fun, it provides an incredible full-body workout in a chilled water-based environment. It’s relaxing yet calorie burning and strength building at the same time and is ideal for beginners. Stand up paddleboards can be rented at Blue Waves Water Sports at Ramla Bay, where your board will be waiting for you on the beach, all ready to go.

Jet Packing Over The Malta Sea

Jet packs, otherwise known as hoverboards, are a great way to have fun and enjoy the stunning views of St George’s Bay for those seeking a thrill. A unique experience is created whether you hover over the water like a bird or move under like a dolphin. You can fly up to 10 meters high, giving you an unforgettable experience. You can experience all of this at Sun and Fun Water Sports based in St. Julian’s.
