We’ve shown you our all time Top 10 Beaches list – but this time there’s a different criteria. Where can you go to have the most fun in the sun and under water? Time to melt off the winter pounds with some summer water sports.  Add to our list by leaving a comment below!

How's this for a full moon party...

Kite boarding in Cabarate, Dominican Republic

…and windsurfing and, well, just plain surfing.  Check out Kite Beach, known for some of the best kite boarding and kite surfing in the world.  The nightlife ain’t bad, either.

Surfing in Torquay, Australia

In and around Torquay on the East Coast of Queensland, Australia, is known humbly as the “surf capital of the world.”  Not only for pros, but beginners alike.  Bells Beach is famous, but for more advanced surfers only.

Oh the potential...

Body surfing at Narrabeen Beach, Australia

Body surfing isn’t only for those who can’t find a board – it’s a serious sport in some places.  You’ll see some nice bodies…ahem body surfers doing there thing at Narrabeen.  If you’re going to join in you should be a strong swimmer, so if you’re a newbie to body surfing, stay in the white water and ask for tips!

Jet Ski at Daytona Beach

It’s quite a scene in Daytona, and this beach is not for everyone. If you’re looking for quiet and serene, head somewhere else.  If you’re ready for late nights, free-flowing beer and fast boats, this is your place.  This beach is famous to NASCAR fans for its racetrack and the Daytona 500.

Under the Malgroves

Kayaking in Kauai

Poipu Beach has a few guided tours of the surrounding cliffs and volcanoes.  Glide on an ocean kayak underneath the towering natural wonders. It’s a breath taking experience safe for kids, too.

There are few places where you can simply walk from your hotel to the shore, and glide out over pristine reefs for some of the best snorkeling in the world…but Bonaire is the real deal. Explore shipwrecks and beautiful dive spots that wrap around nearly the entire island. Windsurfing is also popular.

Rhodes Beach, Greece

Popular for windsurfing, parasailing and paragliding, Rhodes beach has been a popular place for water sports for over 20 years. It has a wild nightlife, and is a great place for group vacations.

Climbing above the ocean – Tonsai Beach, Thailand

Approaching Ton Sai Bay

You probably wouldn’t consider rock climbing a water sport, but in Ton Sai, an island near Krabi, off the west coast of Thailand, you can climb in your bikini dangling above pristine waters.  After a long day of climbing, with sore and dusty limbs, diving into the Bay is the best medicine.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

A mainstay for families, Myrtle Beach has over 60 miles of pristine beaches wonderful for surfing or for swimming.  The vibe is low key, but if you want to find the nightlife, you will have no problem.

Bentota Bay Beach, Sri Lanka

A beautiful and exotic spot for water skiing or windsurfing. There is also deep sea fishing for enthusiasts of this sort, and of course diving and snorkeling. The waters are pristine, and they’ve got it all. There are many small villages to explore.
