The superb array of water sports available here include windsurfing, water skiing, scuba diving, jet skiing, parasailing, banana boats, pedalos and fly-fishing, the latter which is an inflatable similar to a banana boat but much bigger, and the front of the inflatable rises 5 metres above the water.
There are excellent places to scuba dive around Gumbet, such as the ‘Big Reef’, which is a large coral reef covered in orange sponges, sea urchins, star fish and other crustaceans, and which is surrounded by a huge host of tropical fish such as barracuda and vibrantly coloured parrot fish. Anyone can learn to dive at the facilities here, whether you’re a complete beginner or an expert.
If you’re bringing the family, your kids will never be short of things to do. The safe waters, soft sand and abundance of shade make the perfect exotic playground, and they can take a camel ride or nearby Kargi Beach.
