Parasailing experience is one of the most enjoyable and unique attractions in Barcelona. It is an unusual and exciting experience. Starting your way on a speedboat, you can enjoy for 15 minutes an amazing flight over the breathtaking Mediterranean Sea and over the wonderful beaches of Barcelona.
In addition to these, you can take a look also at nearby mountains and at the attractive Medieval and Modernista buildings of the city, like Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral de Santa Eulalia), Montjuïc Castle, Sagrada Familia, Camp Nou / FC Barcelona Museum and many others. Your flight will end with a fantastic splash in the sea.
How Does it Work?
Parasailing activities start from the beach area of the city, near La Barceloneta district, more precisely, in Olympic Port area (for additional information – Attractions and Tours near La Barceloneta and Attractions and Tours near Olympic Port).

Please note that a boat usually starts with more than one person which means that besides your flight there will be several other ones, so the experience will last more than 15 minutes, it may lasts even for about 2 or 2.5 hours. Take all these into account when you plan your holiday. At the end of the flight you will arrive back to the initial meeting point.
Since parasailing experience is an outdoor activity, you need to be prepared that the event can be cancelled because of unfavorable weather conditions (for additional information – Weather in Barcelona).
