Water skiing, wakeboarding and wakesurfing
This is a very popular destination for water skiing and wakeboarding and it's easy to see why. The bay is sheltered, and the water is nice and flat, so there's no excuse not to get out there and give it a go. Whether it’s your first time or your 100th time we’ll make sure you get the most from your time behind the boat.

Water skiing and wakeboarding is available for a fee.

The Bella Vraka Beach is located just outside the hotel area, and the bay offers a paradise for open water swimming. The bay area is sheltered, so the water between the hotel and the Bella Vraka Beach is usually nice and flat. The conditions for swim training are excellent in the naturally tempered ocean water. The hotel’s jetties make it easy to get in and out of the crystal clear water for open water swimming. A warm recommendation for anyone who likes open water swimming is to swim around the island, approximately 2 kilometers.

The 20 meter hotel pool is also available, should you like to do your swimming practice in chlorinated water. The best time is early in the morning before the pool area is filled with sun worshipers.

We recommend that you bring your own goggles, cap, fins and paddle, as the swimming equipment supplies are limited on site.
