Have you ever...para-sailed over the bright blue waters of the French Riviera?

The French are known for their love of the good life, and nowhere is this more evident than on the blue-crusted beaches of the French Riviera. Monaco, Nice, Saint-Tropez: these names conjure images of beautiful people sipping fabulous wine on expensive yachts. Why not sail right past them with the wind at your back and the Cote d’Azur at your toes? Beaches like Nice offer many water sports, and para sailing takes no skills at all, just a strong heart and a belly of steel. Once harnessed to a colorful parachute and roped to a speedboat, you are pulled out over the turquoise Mediterranean. Enjoy the spectacular view of the entire coast including the bowl of mountains that surround it, then return gently to the beach to relax- and exhale.
