Budva Riviera in Montenegro pleases tourists not only with sunny weather and the soft sand of the cleanest beaches. For those who are not enthusiastic about sluggish lying on the beach, offers a lot of various attractions and outdoor activities. The pearl of the Adriatic Sea has all the conditions for paragliding, rafting, diving or parasailing to be charged with a generous portion of adrenaline and fill the soul with happiness.
Parasailing - Beach attraction number one
Among the various types of beach rides, parasailing is especially popular - towing by parachute behind a boat. A fresh breeze blowing in the face, a spice of fragrant herbs in the air, breathtaking landscapes of virgin nature and joy that fills the whole body is only a small part of what you get by choosing parasailing in Budva.
Parasailing differs from the parachute jump by increased safety. The man sits on a kind of bench, attached to the dome with strong lines. You do not need to fly a parachute and catch gusts of wind. Parasail is connected to the boat, which sets the direction and rolls you by sea and sky. This active sport is relatively young, but has already gained many fans.
In addition to a certain amount of extreme and adrenaline, parasailing offers the opportunity to see the beauty and sights of Montenegro’s coastline a bit from a height. Pera beaches, rocky cliffs, cozy bays, old churches, squares and fortresses, as well as large forests from the height look simply amazing!
