When you visit, you have to join in the local craze - paddleboarding! SUP (Stand Up Paddle) is a water sport that originated in Hawaii, USA. It’s easier and more stable than surfing, and can be enjoyed anywhere there is water. Since SUP is so simple, there’s plenty of time to enjoy the scenery as you paddle along.
