If you're looking for an active break and aren’t afraid of getting wet, book one of these holiday homes near fantastic water sports destinations worldwide.
Water sports holidays by the sea allow you to spend energetic mornings on the water and lazy afternoons chilling on the beach. Inland destinations near lakes and rivers are less tied to the summer season and can offer great windsurfing, canoeing and sailing throughout the year.
If you’re planning an action-packed holiday, choose a villa or cottage with plenty of home comforts. You’ll really appreciate a bubbling Jacuzzi, steamy sauna or cosy log fire after an active day on the water.

I am so pleased that overall you found Puffin provided you with an excellent, clean and comfortable base. The little barbecue picture was taking in Pittenweem at west Braes. This is a 5 minute walk on the coastal path from the front door. Pittenweem is a working harbour and you can still watch the fishing vessels at work coming home from sea with there catch. Fresh seafood is available in abundance from the stall in the summer months. Strange this is the first time in over 70 odd guests that have commented about the view from the property. I will however make this more clearer. Thank you for reviewing.
