Where can I do watersports in Wales?

Head down to Cardigan Bay in Mid Wales to have fun in a beautiful Welsh coastal setting.

The sheltered water of New Quay and its wonderful surroundings make for one of the best places for watersports in the UK. There’s a wide range of exciting activities to get stuck into, whether you’re new or a veteran as every session will be under the expert guidance of their team. Cruise with the winds of the Irish Sea in their windsurfing sessions; take a coastal tour of Cardigan in their kayaking session; pick up a fun new skill in their taster paddle boarding sessions or even go water-skiing!
