Watersports in Sicily

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT SICILY

Seafront villas in Sicily >>

With over 1000km of coastline and hundreds of sandy beaches, Sicily is a great place to enjoy watersports. Whether you follow the newer disciplines, such as kitesurfing and wakeboarding, or prefer more traditional activities, like canoeing, waterskiing or scuba diving, there is something for everyone.

On most beaches around Sicily, you will find a lido or two. Also known as stabilimenti balneari, they offer sunloungers, umbrellas, bars and, often, a range of watersport activities, including pedalos, canoes, etc.

However, if you want to do a course, get your PADI diving certificate, learn how to fly in the sky attached to a surfboard or sail high above the sea pulled by a motorboat, you will have to find a more specialist organisation.
