Couples activity holidays

The couple that plays together, stays together. We think so anyway – and that’s why we love a couples’ activity holiday. The beauty of a Neilson Beachclub break is that there’s a place for everything – activities, adventure, relaxation, even a bit of romance. The only thing that’s not on the menu is boredom. Sound good? 

You can tailor your break to include everything that makes you and your partner-in-crime happy, and it all takes place amongst beautiful coastal surroundings. After all, you can’t have a couples’ holiday without watching a sunset or two…

Couples activities

There’s a huge choice of activities included in your holiday, whether you love taking to the water or keeping both feet firmly on dry land. Water sports include dinghy sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, water skiing and wakeboarding, while land-based sports include cycling, tennis, rock climbing, and a whole host of fitness classes from yoga to HIIT. 

You can spend time playing your favourite sport or dive in and try something new – it’s totally up to you. And don’t forget, poolside lounging with a cocktail definitely counts as a couples’ activity in our book too! Or how about some pampering in the spa? A couple’s holiday is the ideal chance to spoil yourselves.

We’ve got experienced teams of water sports instructors, tennis coaches, fitness instructors and bike guides on hand in all of our beachclubs. If you need a gentle motivational nudge, they’ll be there to share their sporting passion and inspire you to learn something new.  

Food and dining

Our menus are inspired by each of our beachclub locations and use locally sourced ingredients. So depending on your destination, you could be treated to Spanish, Italian, Greek or Croatian flavours – with plenty of classic crowd-pleasers like burgers and pizzas to be enjoyed as well.  

We serve club board across all our beachclubs, which means inclusive meals – that’s breakfast and lunch every day, as well as four evening meals each week. These tend to be served buffet-style, giving you plenty of options and no chance of going hungry after all those activities. On non-inclusive nights, you can choose to head out to a local restaurant or come along to one of our BBQ nights.

Foodie couples will love the gourmet à la carte restaurant at our adults-only  Buca Beachclub. Here you'll find a more sophisticated dining experience, with stylish surroundings. Perfect for date night. 

Relaxed evenings

A huge part of our couples’ holidays is the daytime activities we offer, but whether you’ve been busy on the waves, your bike or on the beach all day, we don’t think the fun should stop just because the sun goes down. 

Come evening, you’ll still be relaxing as hard as you like. Fancy chilled-out cocktails in the bar before catching up on the day’s activities over dinner with your partner? No problem. 

Maybe you prefer socialising with other couples and taking part in some of our adult-focused mix and mingle activities? We’ve got everything from quiz nights and booze ‘n’ balls (aka. tennis with a beer in hand!) to wine tasting and cocktail masterclasses to keep you entertained. Or perhaps you like to explore the local tavernas and get a real taste of local life. Go, the night is young and so are you!

Buca Beachclub

Our top pick for a couples activity holiday has to be our adults-only Buca Beachclub, on the beautiful sands of Greece’s Analipsi beach. It’s our only beachclub that’s exclusively for over-18s, so straight away you’ve got that relaxing vibe.

The hotel has a gorgeous boutique feel, with just 57 stylish rooms. While the hotel, bar, à la carte restaurant and pool are strictly adults only, many of the activities are shared with guests at our neighbouring family-friendly Messini Beachclub.

Alana Beachclub

Our freshly renovated Alana Beachclub on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast is another of our favourites for a couples break. The indulgent wellness area is a huge draw, boasting a brand new 50m outdoor pool, an indoor hydromassage whirlpool, resistance swimming pool, hot tubs, steam bath and three varieties of sauna. 

The modern style of the hotel’s rooms is matched by a rather fabulous rooftop cocktail bar that’s in literally the best spot to watch the sunset. Activities-wise, there are plenty of choices, with the nearby Paklenica National Park making a thrilling outdoor playground. Try rock climbing, mountain biking or head out into the bay to enjoy fantastic wind conditions and warm water that was made for water sports.  

Airone Beachclub

Last up, we have to mention Italy. What could be more fitting for a couples’ holiday than a trip to one of Europe’s most romantic destinations? Our new in 2018 Airone Beachclub in Calabria – the arch of Italy’s famous boot – is a lovely choice for couples looking to enjoy amazing food, a rural setting and a tranquil atmosphere (this is one of our smaller beachclubs).

The road cycling in this region is particularly good and water sports fans will love this sun-drenched stretch of coast with its turquoise waters and gentle breezes.
