One of our favourite things to do is to dream of new places to visit and try out coasteering there.
Coasteering is becoming more and more popular as an activity for tourists and locals all around the world and it's got us thinking about the countries and coasts we'd most like to explore. Here's our wish list of places we'd love to travel to for coasteering.
Isles of Scilly
This archipelago off the south-west corner of England looks incredible. Not only does it look like a beautiful part of the world to travel to, but the islands' coasts look like one giant playground for would-be adventurers.
The guys at Kernow Coasteering know the area like the back of their hand and provide great trips on St. Mary's. Check out this YouTube edit to get a flavour of island coasteering.
As soon as the opportunity arises, we're visiting the Azores, a group of islands located in the Atlantic ocean about 1500km west of Lisbon. The islands were all formed by volcanoes underneath the ocean so there are mountains inland and incredible cliffs, caves and rock formations along the coasts.
We're not the first people to want to go cliff jumping in the Azores. Red Bull have been hosting an event on their Cliff Diving World Championship on the island of Sao Miguel for years. Check out this video to get a taste of what coasteering on the Azores could be like:
Rugged, wild, isolated; Ireland's west coast is everything you want for a coasteering destination. Sadly we've never travelled there specifically for coasteering but when we get the chance to visit, it's going to be top of our list of things to do.
Ok, I know what you're thinking, jumping into the sea in Norway is going to be pretty cold, but with a nice think wetsuit, some good booties and gloves, it would be incredible. In the Magma Unesco Global Geopark, coasteering is taking off and they have awesome features to explore and great jumps to send.
Honestly, I don't know much about coasteering in the Philippines but the landscape looks epic. With huge cliffs rising out of the ocean, it really looks like it could be a perfect option for jumping and exploring. Red Bull have also made a stop there on their world tour so we know jumping is possible - maybe not from the same heights as these guys though:
