Parasailing in Villefranche sur Mer


  • This beginner-friendly excursion includes all necessary training and gear

  • Enjoy beautiful views overlooking Nice and the Mediterranean

  • This flexible experience can be tailored to your party’s size and schedule

  • Discover a side of the area’s scenery that few other visitors get to see


Get a unique, bird’s-eye perspective on the famous coastline of the French Riviera. Choose the day you’d like to embark on your parasailing adventure, and then arrive at the launch point anytime between 9 am and 6 pm to suit your sightseeing schedule. Make your way to the water sports center on Nice’s famous Promenade des Anglais to meet your expert instructor. Go it alone, or choose to ride tandem with one or two friends or family members.  After a safety briefing and lesson on parasailing basics, step into a safety harness and wade out into the warm water of the Bay of Angels (Baie des Anges). Your guide will help connect your harness to the giant parasail and a pull rope attached to a speed boat. As the boat pulls forward and your sail fills with elevating air, feel the thrilling sensation of rising up to 165 feet (50 meters) into the sky.  Once airborne, enjoy stunning aerial views of the sandy coastline, the expansive blue waters of the Mediterranean, Nice’s historic streets and the rolling hills of Provençe. After around 7 minutes of unforgettable flight, drift down for a water landing as the pull boat slows to a stop. Emerge back onto the shore at the end of your parasailing experience.
