If you’re someone who can never decide what kind of activity you want to do next, but you know you love the water, then coasteering is for you. Combining multiple activities along the coastline, it’s a hit with adrenaline-seekers looking to push the boundaries of their adventures.
Coasteering involves moving around intertidal coastlines, which means you could be swimming, jumping, diving, scrambling, climbing or caving, depending on where you are and what you face. It’s a great way to access some more remote areas of coastline and is incredibly versatile, making it the ultimate group activity. Plus, as you’re at the mercy of the sea and the tides, you can do the same route multiple times and always find new challenges.
The UK is a coasteering paradise, with miles of rugged coastline to explore, so you don’t have far to go if you’re looking to get your fix. You need relatively little gear too, which is always a bonus. A wetsuit is a must, as is a helmet, but otherwise, you’ll just want some old trainers to protect your feet and maybe some old layers to protect your wetsuit from getting snagged on the rocks.
