Climbing walls

We have climbing walls with inclusive tuition at Alana, Airone and Messini Beachclubs. Guests staying at Buca Beachclub can also use the climbing wall at Messini Beachclub.

The climbing walls are great for adults and children, even better, no experience is necessary! We provide you with all the safety equipment you'll need (climbing harnesses and safety helmets) and our instructors will take you through your first steps to ensure you have a great time. It's not just for first timers, experienced climbers will enjoy the climbing wall too.

Rock climbing in Croatia

We have teamed up with a local climbing school to offer you a fantastic pre-bookable rock climbing experience. 


A two-hour climbing try-out experience' includes all the climbing and safety kit you will need, an experienced local instructor and your transport from Alana Beachclub. You will be taught climbing techniques and are able to climb as many routes as you can in the time permitted. Climbs are up to 25m with easy and more challenging climbs available


If you have climbed before (indoor or outdoor) give out intermediate climbing experience a go. Perfect for indoor climbers who would like to progress to outdoors, the session will cover useful climbing techniques including how to belay, with a focus on intermediate skills to make you a more proficient climber. You should have indoor climbing experience and have the ability to tackle a 5.8-5.10 grade climb.

The climbing in Paklenica National Park, Croatia

Alana Beachclub in Croatia is just two kilometres from the Paklenica National Park, one of the premier free-climbing sites in Europe.  Most of the routes are easy to access and with a wide range of grades; pretty much anyone can give it a go.


The climbing is on limestone rock, the majority of the routes are bolted and there are over 170 single pitch sports routes close to the entrance to the park.  


All pre-bookable climbing will include transfers and equipment. The minimum age to book both climbing experiences is eight years and children must be at least 120cm tall and weight over 30kgs. All children under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (only one spectator per climber). In addition to the cost of climbing, you will need to pay a small fee for entrance into the national park itself.

Rock climbing in Greece

One of the main climbing sites we use is Kardamili (about one hour's drive away from Messini and Buca Beachclubs). The Kardamili climbing experience can be pre-booked for £65 per person and will only run if a minimum of three people have booked the trip. 

The minimum age is eight years and children age 8-15 years must be accompanied by an adult (either climbing or spectating). The climbing experience is subject to minimum numbers, without at least three guests on the trip it will not run. 

The climbing at Kardamili, Greece

First opened in 2013, the limestone crags, which rise above a beautiful bay, have more than 30 bolted climbing routes of beginner and intermediate level. It's best to climb in the morning before the heat of the day, so you'll be leaving the beachclub at around 7.30am ready for a two-hour climbing session.

You'll be learning the basics and climbing for the first time with the assistance and reassurance of highly qualified instructors. Kardamili is one of our favourite climbing spots in the area, there are also a few other sites that offer afternoon climbing with equally stunning views.
