Being a fun island destination, there's no shortage of exciting activities in Bali. And some of the most thrilling things you can do on the island are water sports. Whether you prefer to have a more laidback time in the water or an adrenaline-pumping time on the waves, Bali has something for you. Below we list some of the best water sports on the island that you shouldn't miss while you're here.

1. Jet Skiing

Jet skiing is one of the most famous activities in Bali and they're available at many beaches including Sanur and Nusa Dua. You'll get to speed through the waters with a high-powered motorised water vehicle and feel the wind in your face. Jet skiing is very easy to pick up making it a great activity for everyone.

2. Snorkelling

If you want to explore the island's marine beauty, then snorkelling is a great Bali water sport to try. You don't need big, fancy equipment and be an Olympic swimmer to snorkel. In fact, you can do it with the whole family as long as everyone knows how to swim. At Club Med, we can arrange snorkelling trips for you so you don't need to worry about booking or organising one yourself when you stay with us.

3. White Water Rafting

Besides thrilling beach activities, Bali has an abundance of exciting things to do further inland and white water rafting is one of them. You can raft on the Ayung and Telaga Waja River and enjoy the surrounding Balinese villages and forests while having a great time.

4. Surfing

If there's one water sport that Bali is known for, it's surfing. There are numerous surf spots on the island including at Kuta, Nusa Dua, Uluwatu, and even off the main island at Nusa Penida. The waves range from beginner-friendly to expert level, so make sure you know what you're getting into when you choose a surf beach.

5. Scuba Diving

The beautiful, clear waters surrounding Bali has great marine biodiversity and they are best enjoyed on a scuba dive. There are multiple dive locations around the island, so if you're planning on having a scuba diving vacation, Bali is a good place to be. You can see unique marine life such as the Mola Mola (oceanic sunfish), manta rays, reef sharks, and so much more.

6. Water Skiing

If you want something more thrilling than a jet ski, then you should try water skiing. Try to keep your balance on a pair of ski boards while being pulled by a speed boat along Bali's gorgeous coastlines. Water skiing is a safe and easy sport to get into.

7. Stand-Up Paddleboarding

A stand-up paddleboard is a precursor to the famous surfboard. A paddleboard has more surface area and is more stable, making it great for beginners. You can go on a leisurely paddle on the water, or if you fancy, you can even surf on big waves alongside other surfers.

8. Windsurfing

Not many destinations offer windsurfing, but you can try this water sport in Bali. At Club Med, you can take thorough windsurfing lessons where you'll learn to harness the wind, balance on the board, and more. Riding on a windsurfing board is a unique experience, as you can glide on the water even when there are very little waves.

9. Parasailing

Fly high above the Balinese coast and marvel at the magnificent view of Bali as you get pulled by a speed boat. Being up in the air while you're parasailing is calming and thrilling at the same time. It's one of the must-try activities while you're here.

As you can see, there are exciting water sports for everyone in Bali. When you're done at the beach, why not go on a tour of Bali or relax at one of the many waterfalls on the island.
