I would suggest that if you plan to parasail, don't do it from the beach. Go to an excursion company so you take off from a boat and land back on the boat. We saw a couple do a tandem from the beach, and as they were running in the sand, the girl fell and the guy tried to help her up. They managed to make it off the ground about 50 feet and the line disconnected from the parachute and the boat, causing them to fall 50 feet into the water. They were carrying their camcorder, so that got destroyed and the operators suddenly couldn't speak English. This would have been enough to ruin any vacation.
