Welcome to Chaweng

Beach activities

Water Sports

There are jets skis, windsurfing boards, canoes, banana boats, small sailing boats / catamarans (Hobie or Laser) and sometimes also water-skis available for rent on several locations of the beach.

If you decide to rent a jet ski, take care of yourself (drive responsibly) as well as the machine. It might be expensive if it gets damaged, as an insurance is rarely included in the price. Some further information about water sports is found here

Beach Walking

Beach strolling is a totally free-of-charge activity and you'll get the tan, the exercise and you will look better if you do it regularly. 30-90 minutes per day and you will end up with a great shape. This is also a great opportunity to meet people from allover the world!
