South Beach Water Activities: Part 2

People come to South Beach for a variety of reasons. But, it may be safe to say the main reason is the beach itself – it’s beautiful. The city’s beach draws thousands of visitors each year. And this beach, isn’t just for tanning or sleeping on. South Beach is home to endless water sports and activities for people to have fun and be entertained.

 

Last month, we shared some popular water activities on the blog, but since there are so many, we wanted to share more! Below is a few more South Beach favorites that will guarantee you some fun in the sun.

 

Flyboarding

Want to feel like you’re flying? Flyboarding is a water-powered device that shoots you up out of the water like a jetpack; its attached to your feet (boots) and is powered by a hose connected to a jet ski. The way the device looks, it has been compared to flying like Iron Man. Both children and adults can enjoy this activity. People can choose to do this for 30 minutes or an hour. Lessons are available for those who have never tried this before. Safety equipment is also provided.

 

Here are a few spots where you can rent a flyboard:
