It’s always an attractive prospect to mix our holidays with sports and activities, particularly as, these days, there are plenty of resorts available, fully equipped for our needs. And if you’re a family, you often find children’s clubs on hand and activities included as part of the holiday package.
The Flexicover Team looks at some activity destinations that may stimulate that desire to get up and go!
Tennis in Turkey
Combine a love for tennis and a beautiful beach resort in Turkey with the Andriake Beach Club for your perfect holiday experience. Tennis fanatics will love this new resort for its superb facilities including a tennis centre with 6 courts (2 clay and 4 astroturf). What’s more, a team of professionals will offer inclusive coaching daily to ensure you are progressing and having fun too! All you do is choose your ability group when you arrive and coaches will give you your times for the week. It’s a great way to improve your game, have some fun and play with new people. Spend your afternoons relaxing in the Neilson Spa and make use of the traditional Turkish hammam (sauna)!
Sailing in Greece
Always wanted to sail but never had a chance? Try it this year in the beautiful Greek coastal waters and combine with some relaxation on a beach with friends and family too. Jump on a yacht and take to the seas around the Ionian coastline! Packages are available for all different abilities, from the sailing experts to those for beginners wanting to just have some fun. Spend time at the Retreat Beach Club, located amongst natural beauty with tiny coves and green hills for a break of your dreams. And if sailing isn’t enough, try your hand at water-skiing, kayaking or windsurfing too for a memorable holiday!
Fishing in Argentina
For a fishing experience like no other, head to Argentina’s southernmost province, Tierra del Fuego. Stay in the fabulous family-run Kau Tapen Lodge, the area’s first fly-fishing lodge, and enjoy an experience like no other with stunning views thrown in for good measure. This is your opportunity for the finest sea trout fly-fishing in the world! With up to 9 hours fishing per day and access to 10 miles of water on both banks of the Rio Grande, you can catch fine specimens averaging 6kgs, with some monsters in excess of 13kg! The lodge has expert international and local guides on hand to help you out. Relax with a massage and some great Argentinean wine, with bird watching and wildlife-viewing trips also available if you want a day’s rest from fishing!
Diving in the Seychelles
For a holiday experience combining gorgeous scenery and relaxation with diving, the Seychelles is a great choice. The clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean surrounding the islands, its expansive reefs, walls, pinnacles and drop-offs combined with diverse marine environments make it a first class choice for this kind of holiday! The 5-star PADI Dive Resort, located south-west of Mahe, is just a stone’s throw away from the beach and makes for a unique break for exploring the underwater world and to see some beautiful fishes and turtles up close and personal!
Golf in Madeira
The rocky island of Madeira, an Atlantic territory that’s part of Portugal, is home to a collection of great golf courses. Team the activity with rugged mountains and dramatic views and you have a winning destination for golfing enthusiasts! Growing in popularity as a golf destination, the temperate climate, with an abundance of leisure options, makes the island doubly tempting for tourists. In addition, with a fabulous, 500 year old capital, some great shops and boutiques and restaurants and cafés galore, this destination makes it a sporty family holiday hot-spot.
