Every heard of a Sit-down Hydrofoil? Here's what it does: it rides above the ocean waves while you sit on its wing. Cool, right? Well, it's the newest and best of the water sports activities available at Angsana Velavaru Resort and Spa in the Maldives. And there are over 100 more holiday activities for grabs at this unique destination.
When planning your next holiday, you absolutely must look up Angsana Velavaru because this is where the magic happens.
With every imaginable holiday luxury at your fingertips, you won't want to go anywhere else....
Try your hand at some Big Game Fishing and have something to boast of afterwards. The deeper waters of the oceans of the South Nilandhe Atoll is full of big fish that are sure to earn you everyone's envy, should you be lucky enough to haul one in.
What about watching some dolphins? Take a catamaran out into the great big ocean as you look out for these cute mammals. And if adventure is your thing, then opt for kneeboarding. Very much like Wakeboarding and Water Skiing, Kneeboarding involves hanging onto a tow-rope while the foot strap is secured over the thigh. If that's not exciting enough, go all out with Mono Skiing where you cling to the tow-rope while placing one foot in front of the other and ride the waves at high speed.
The kids feeling left out? Not a chance. They can join in the "grown up" activities with Angsana Velavaru's kiddies version of water sports. Let them try out some Bubble Making which is scuba diving for 8 or 9 year-olds in the shallow lagoon. The little ones can also feel special by getting on board with the Conservation Programme where they can learn about marine life preservation such as how to care for native seabirds, turtles and coral gardens.
The resort boasts of 101 activities that will keep anyone, of any age, engaged and enthralled. The traditional water sports such as Diving, Snorkelling, Sailing, Kayaking too, are a must at this resort that is proud to have won the 2007 Indian Ocean's Leading Diving Resort award at the World Travel Awards. There really is no better guarantee of the perfect holiday than at Angsana Velavaru.
