Water Sports at Paradise Sun

Canoe, Kayak and SUP on Praslin

The Seychelles is an ocean-dream on and below the surface. Our resort beach, Cote d’Or, is the perfect mix of shallow warm water and gentle waves for guests looking to see Praslin from a canoe, kayak or stand up paddle board. Friendly schools of fish gather near the edges of St Pierre Beach Restaurant and the granite boulders on the west end of the beach, while curious rays glide along the sandy floor.

Canoes & Kayaks

A choice of canoes and kayaks can be used by one or two people to explore around the bay, spot rays, or even paddle out to the nearest island. Small lapping waves make this easy for beginners.
Want to experience below the surface from above? Our see-through kayak gives you the best of both worlds.


What’s SUP? Stand Up Paddle Boarding is a cross between surfing and canoeing. The paddle board is designed for standing or kneeling and using an oar to navigate your way around the bay. First time SUP’ers will appreciate the lack of giant waves and warm water for the inevitable beginner’s water immersion.

Inclusive Water Sports

Guests are invited to use canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and snorkel equipment available at our Beach Clubhouse free of charge.
