1) Boating

Boating is a great way to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach. Whether you’re taking out a kayak, sailing boat or motorboat, getting out on the water can provide an incredible experience. Depending on where you are, there may also be opportunities for fishing and whale watching. If boating isn’t your thing, then perhaps consider stand-up paddle boarding as another option for exploring the area from the water!

In addition, you may want to consider taking a boat tour with a local guide if you’re looking for an educational experience. Boat tours can provide insight into the history of the area, as well as any unique wildlife that inhabits the water.
