Come on in, the water's lovely! There's nothing quite like the feel of cool water on sun-kissed skin, is there? As well as our huge range of water-based activities, all of our beachclubs have refreshing pools. Take a quick dip, smash out some lengths, give aqua fit a go or have fun splashing about with the kids.


You're in the Med, so why not try sea swimming? If you're feeling up to it, you'll be able to join organised swims along the coastline. It beats the monotony of laps up and down your local pool, that's for sure.

Swim coaching

If you’d like to improve your confidence in the water, or you want to perfect your technique; our swim coaches are there to give one-to-one swim coaching for all ages and abilities.

Private one-to-one lessons start from just €24 for 30 minutes.  Lessons are bookable locally and subject to availability.

Triathlon training camp

Put your swimming skills to the test and pick up some great tips from the pros on one of our triathlon training camps. As well as swimming, you’ll be hitting the road on our road bikes and testing your endurance with run training. There’s a great balance between training and fun, with an end of week race. 



SwimTrek are the world leaders in open water swimming holidays. They operate a mixed programme of sea swimming ranging from leisurely escorted swims for the novice open water swimmer all the way to challenging coastal swims for the more experienced.

The SwimTrek trip is an ideal way to mix the pleasures of an open water swimming and dedicated swim coaching with all of the usual inclusive Neilson activities, beachclub accommodation, food and if you’re travelling as a family, kids’ clubs for all ages.  2017 dates are still to be confirmed, but check back soon for details of our next collaboration with SwimTrek.
