In Estepona we have many things that characterize us, and among them, of course, is our good weather and our beach. To me, you give me a few rays of sun, a deck chair and a good book and I’m happy, even if my reality is sand, castles, going to the shore for buckets of water and carrying a bunch of toys.
If neither sunbeds nor castles are your thing, I bring you more adventurous plans. Let’s take a look at all the water sports you can do on the beaches of Estepona.
I.O.E MARINA, boat rental and water activities for all tastes.
Since 1995, the Estepona Marina has been offering outdoor sports and water activities. They have different rental services such as:
- Focker 222: boat for 8 persons.
- Wake Board: is a very wide floating board on which a person rides like on a surfboard pulled by a motorboat.
- Giant float (pulled on a rope by a motorboat)
- Mono Ski: it is a thin and long board on which both feet are held in line, pulled through a rope.
- Water Skis: two skis used to glide over the water using a rope connected to a motorboat.
- Ski Bus: something similar to a giant banana for several people that is connected to a rope, pulled by a motorboat.
To rent the boat without a skipper, you must have the relevant license to carry it and present it at the time of rental. In addition, you will have to pay a deposit that will be returned to you after the delivery of the boat at the end of the rental period. Fuel is also paid separately.
