With kids’ clubs, a variety of land and water-based activities and fitness classes to try, there’s plenty to do for everyone. Whether you're travelling as a family, a couple, or as a single, you'll find some of your favourite activities, and perhaps try something completely new. It's your holiday, of course, and if you prefer to take it easy, there are plenty of relaxing options too.
Take your pick of activities
Active Resorts offer a wide range of activities to get involved in, with most included in the price. Perfect your serve on the tennis court with some lessons or explore a little more of the surrounding area on a guided or self-guided cycling tour. Water sports enthusiasts are well catered for, with windsurfing and sailing on the agenda, or try your hand at something tricky with a trapeze class. You can even explore under the sea with the resorts’ diving facilities at an extra cost.
If you’re in need of a bit of rest and relaxation, head to the resort spa. Indulge your senses with the soothing treatments on offer in each location. Couples can escape the hustle and bustle of life around the quiet pools, in the bars or on the secluded beach. Travelling alone? You’ll be invited for drinks before dinner to mingle with other guests.
Keep the kids entertained
Family time is so important – and so is a fun-filled getaway for everyone. All Active Resorts provide the very best in childcare, making them a great choice for the whole family. Little ones will love the professionally led activities, from kayaking in the sea to team-building with new friends.
Parents can get some well-earned rest thanks to the free kids’ clubs that run from 9am to 5pm, with a break to spend lunchtime together. Toddler Clubs keep little tots engaged, with plenty of indoor and outdoor play in the crèche, while Junior Club takes 6 to 9-year-olds out on the water to try their hand at sailing and windsurfing with RYA-qualified instructors. Teens can meet up with friends for water polo and volleyball with the Indy Club, and sign themselves up for cricket. Come sunset, themed dinners and evening entertainment for the kids gives you the chance to escape for a romantic meal for two.
