Best Water Sports to Try in Malaysia - Must Try Water Bound Activities in Malaysia

Regarded as a one stop water sports Mecca for the masses, Malaysia is the perfect destination for a host of water bound activities. Here are some of the most popular water sports in the country.



Tipped to be the best way to discover the beauty of the Malaysian coastline and the many islands that dot its landscapes, a kayaking trip is also a welcome change of pace for those who are used to fast and exciting water sports activities. Kayaking tours require little to no experience as all one must do is paddle along while witnessing the environment in which they find themselves in whether it's the Seribuat Archipelago or Langkawi Island. Other Malaysian kayaking hotspots include Kuching and Merapuh.


Scuba Diving

As a popular past time of seasoned visitors to Malaysia it is not an exaggeration to state that scuba diving is one of the best loved water sports among locals and visitors. This is why every traveller must make the time to dive beneath the waves during a Malaysia getaway as the sheer variety of marine life and coral reefs occupying its coastlines are truly impressive. The best time to go scuba diving in Malaysia fall between the months of July and August and once again from April to December. Mabul Island and Sipadan Island are home to some of the most coveted dive sites in Malaysia in addition to Mataking Island.



Wave riders should head to Malaysia when the north-eastern monsoon season is in full swing from the months of October to March as this is when the best surfing encounters are to be had in the Asian nation. The east coast is particularly irresistible this time of year with Batu Burok Beach and Terengganu serving as the main attractions for surfers of varying experience levels. Offering idyllic conditions for surfing, Malaysia also hosts a plethora surfing contests throughout the year while those who wish to pick up the sport can also sign up for lessons through the Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas or any other accommodation provider of their choice.



As one of the top Desaru Attractions for thrill seekers, parasailing is a water sports activity that can be enjoyed all year round in Malaysia. Soaring above the water with a parachute at one's back, this adrenalin pumping activity is definitely not for those with a fear of heights. Parasailing is also one of the most affordable water bound activities available in the country but visitors should take care to enlist the services of a tour operator with a good safety record due to the risky nature of the sport. Langkawi Island is a popular parasailing destination in Malaysia.



Another year round activity tourists can enjoy across Malaysia especially in areas such as Johor, The Mines in the nation's capital and at Mersing's Malaysia Sea Sports, wakeboarding is not for the faint of heart. Regarded as one of the new and emerging water sports activities available to travellers, great agility and spunk is required to enjoy this water based ride to the fullest.
