Water Sports in Monaco
Parasailing beneath the cliffs of Monaco; racing on a jetski around the superyachts anchored in the bay; wakeboarding beneath ‘The Rock’, the royal palace sitting high above: there are few more jaw- dropping places to indulge in a day of watersports than in the glittering principality of Monaco.
Monaco only has one public stretch of beach at Plage Larvotto, and the Meridien Beach Plaza (also on Larvotto) is the only Monegasque hotel with private beachfront. Both the public and private stretches have watersports operators. In addition, the waterfront hotel Monte Carlo Beach Hotel has a water sports club where visitors can also rent equipment and book activities.
Whether it’s a leisurely canoe paddle along the beach or being towed behind a jet boat in a donut screaming your head off, Monaco has an abundance of watersport activities on offer.
The cliffs of Monaco aren't considered an ideal spot for windsports; your closest spot is at Saint Laurent du Var just east of Nice.
