Water Sports – Kayaking & Paddleboarding

Kayaking & Paddleboarding - Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa

Sheltered by a lovely seawall, the calm water at Garza Blanca Beach is perfect for paddleboarding and kayaking due to its fairly shallow depth and tranquil surface.  The awe-inspiring view of nearby Los Arcos, the gorgeous islands comprised of grand rock formations jutting from the ocean, is a true natural masterpiece you can get even closer to on a paddleboard or kayak.  With several excursions offered to try both sports, as well as the option to take the equipment out on your own, you will be able to bask in nature’s glories like never before.
