Kids can even try out longkang fishing and experience a fish spa for themselves, then wind down at the onsite cafe.

You can choose between different systems, depending on whether you want to go on your own or if you want to wakeboard with others at the same time. For beginners, it’s probably better to go for an individual session, so that the instructor can focus solely on you for your first few tries.

After your sesh, refuel at the on-site Coastal Rhythm Cafe & Bar from which you can also spot visitors riding the waves.
