We have curated a list of the water sports activities you must absolutely engage in when you go to Konark-

1) Parasailing

If there is one activity that can be found on the bucket list of every single adventure seeker and thrill lover out there, it is parasailing. Essentially a recreational activity involving a person being towed by a vehicle while they are attached to a parachute which is simply called a parasail. Everyone participating in this activity must wear helmets and life jackets so their safety is assured. Eco retreat Konark offers parasailing to its visitors and tourists on several beaches of the town and is a truly enchanting experience. 

2) Speed Boat Rides

Are you into races and love speed in its entirety? Bike racing would excite you fully then, and must already set your brain into a rush. You get to race around through the great waters and streamline along the waves while racing with your friends, exploring an excessive amount of adventure on the sea. Speed boat rides allow you to detach yourself from the world as you experience extreme closeness with nature. You can graze over sun-kissed waters as you become one with the breeze and let yourself venture forth freely.

3) ATV Rides

There aren’t many places in India that allow you to go on ATV rides. While it is a fairly offbeat adventure activity, it supremely gratifies your adrenaline needs. It involves an ‘All-Terrain-Vehicle’, the stretched version of the ATV,  which is just an open-air motorized off-highway vehicle, specifically designed to be able to travel on three, often four low-pressure tyres. It also has a comfortable seat in the middle for the rider to sit and control the handlebars of the vehicle. ATVs are mostly used for dirt biking activities and you do not really need any former or pre-established experience because it is mostly safe for beginners and amateurs or people just afraid of adventure in general. 

4) Banana Boat Rides

You will go BANANAS over this sport if you are genuinely fond of water sports and love water in general. It involves a boat that is shaped like a banana and is connected to a speedboat which then pulls it along the waters while people sitting on it wait for it to turn over with life jackets and safety helmets on. While it is genuinely fun to be thrown off the boat, it is also highly recommended that you hold onto the boat with your life to double the fun.

Children above the age of 10 can participate in the activity with adequate safety measures and can have an immense amount of fun with it.

5) Jet Ski Ride

The beaches of Konark have waves that will genuinely fuel you with sheer power as you ride them on jet skis. You usually get to ski for only 10 minutes or so and are accompanied by an experienced rider who is trained to take care of any fallbacks in case they happen. It is a great workout and also allows you to have absolute fun. You can jet ski on the surface of water and it might be a bit challenging but it will also entrance you completely.

6) Snorkeling

Snorkeling allows you to go inside the surface of water as you explore its very depth while enjoying the views of the world of water. It involves swimfins, a diving mask and a snorkel which is simply a breathing tube. This equipment lets you see and observe the underwater world at its most undisturbed state. It also does not require you to use a lot of energy so you can simply let yourself be and have a huge amount of fun while at it.
