Cesars Watersport Centre is nigh on an institution on the island. Started in 1977, Cesars Watersports Centre is a fabulous combination of beach bar restaurant and a vast range of watersports, all situated on the East Coast with stunning views, between Santa Eulalia and Es Canar at S'Argamassa beach.
I had already enjoyed the beach bar showing it off to friends who gratifyingly couldn’t help themselves but look impressed, on several occasions (note: particularly entertaining on Wednesdays and Sundays when Cesar cooks the traditional Paella for all present.)
That said, I had never personally stopped to explore the Watersport facilities, although it was hard to ignore them with jetski’s sending up amazing plumes of water and people laughing as they fell off the banana boat ride right before your eyes, guaranteeing much entertainment for those enjoying drinks or dinner.
Arriving on a glorious Friday afternoon and after a lunch of burgers and fries (quite delighted with the standard of the food – one guest commenting it was the best burger she had had in a very long time and finding myself agreeing with her) it was time to see what Cesars had to offer.
Firstly, everyone clambered aboard the banana boat ride, the anticipation from children and adults alike almost tangible. In a bay of turquoise clear blue warm Mediterranean waters, as the banana boat ride tipped everyone overboard, the laughter and delight was absolute. A little dip in paradise? Yes please.
Next it was time to try out the jetski’s and just as we had witnessed, the thrills rang true, Cesar Jnr accompanying one of my guests as it was her first experience of the water-planing machines. It seemed impossible to catch a photograph of her doing anything but smiling!
Water skiing was next and then parasailing. Climbing 140 metres into the air, the views were breath-taking, for both those watching the para-sail rise and for the volunteer high above us.
With a range of powerboats available to facilitate almost every imaginable watery wish, Cesar also offers trips to nearby islands, including Tagomago and Formentera – one of them especially tailored to thrill small children.
If a beautiful setting, great food and a range of watersports suitable for all ages and abilities appeals, Cesars Watersports is the ideal location. Of course, if you just want to chill out, there’s a wonderful golden sand beach (loungers available) to ensure you can snooze whilst friends go and get their adrenalin fix.
It has to be observed with some real pleasure that all the staff from Cesar, his son (Cesar Jnr) and crew, that their passion and enjoyment of the lifestyle reflects wonderfully in their customer service. The welcome and consideration for your needs and ensuring your enjoyment of the day is obviously paramount to them.
Prices are competitive and factoring in the excellent customer service and gorgeous setting, I’d offer it's very good value.
