Family Beach holidays

From water sports and swimming pools, to mountain biking and tennis, there’s something for everyone on our family active holidays.

 

Feel free to improve your skills or try something new, together as a family or as a bit of you-time. And thanks to our expert instructors and club leaders, you're all in safe hands.

 

Once you’ve earned that afternoon rest, come together as a family and swap stories from the day over lunch in the sun. Our breathtaking beachclub destinations, delicious dining options and comfy family rooms give you plenty of places to re-energise.

It’s a family holiday, so we want to make sure you all have a great time. Not to worry, we’ve got something for your oldest, your youngest and your hardest to please.

Kids' clubs for kids

From sailing to kayaking, tennis to cycling, on a Neilson Holiday you can spend time doing what you love whilst your family discover their own new favourite things. Then come together and swap stories over lunch in the sun. 

 

With kids from the ages of two to eighteen looked after, your children will try new sports from kayaking to sailing, make new friends and grow in confidence. 

 

For babies we’ve got our Starfish crèche and for watersports mad kids there's the Hot Shots club, both of which are available for a supplement. 

 

Don't miss out, pre-book your kids' clubs before you go to secure a space.

Activities to do as a family on holiday

Our family beach holidays are jam packed with activities for you and your family to enjoy. Spend your days doing: sailing, water skiing, wakeboarding or just swimming in the beautiful oceans. If you’d rather stay on dry land, our tennis courts and climbing walls will let you get the most out of your holiday. Children aged 14 and up can also join in with the adult teaching sessions in windsurfing, dinghy sailing, tennis and fitness, so you can earn that suntan as a family. 

 

As well as the wide range of inclusive activities, we also offer additional options that can be booked for a small supplement. Take a leap with something you’ve never done before, like kite-surfing or rock climbing, to make it a holiday you’ll never forget. Done with activities for the day? Why not build a sandcastle, eat an ice-cream or read a book on the beach.

A caring team

Our team will make sure your tots, toddlers and teens are living their best life, keeping their days full of activities and entertainment. With nannies and qualified instructors on hand when you need them, you can feel free to head off and have some fun yourself, or pop in and say hi whenever you fancy it. 

We want all children to be able to do their thing to the max! The activities we offer in our kids' clubs are full of fun and adventure, with the health and well-being of the children at the heart of what we do. Large groups, new environments and exciting activities can sometimes be a little over whelming for children with additional needs, even if they thrive in main stream education. When this is the case, they may benefit from our one-to-one care.

Designed to ensure all children are getting the incredible level of care they deserve as well as being able to safely enjoy activities as part of a group along with their new friends in kids' club. Talk to us about our one-to-one care service and if it's right for you and your family.

Fuel up for fun

Growing kids out in the fresh air all day, burning loads of energy will definitely have worked up an appetite. Kids will love the food at our beachclubs. It’s nutritional, locally sourced and totally tasty. There’s plenty of familiar favourites on the buffets as well as some new flavours to try.

Four days a week children in Sea Urchins, Sea Badgers, Surfbusters, Stingrays, Sharksters and Hot Shots will be taken for lunch by the team (unless you prefer to sign them out). If you have any little ones in the Starfish creche, you'll need to collect them at 12.30pm, they can be dropped off again at 2.30pm.

Keep the tummy rumbles at bay with high tea at five pm for the under fives. 

Time for the grown ups

Relaxed evenings

Take some time to enjoy a sunset stroll, enjoy dinner with friends or head out for cocktails - we’ll take care of the rest. Kids’ clubs run all the way through to 11pm on some evenings, with activities in the club house for the older kids or sleep club and a movie for the little ones.

More evening care is available if needed, it’s generally included for the older ones, or is in paid sleep club for the little ones, £15 per two hour session. Please bring along pyjamas plus milk and a comforter if needed.

Family and inter-connecting rooms, baby booster and toddler packs

Family and interconnecting rooms, baby booster and toddler packs

All beachclubs have interconnecting rooms. Two rooms with an internal door connecting them for more space, more security and peace of mind when travelling with the kids.

Our family rooms tend to have all the beds in the same room to keep an eye on the little ones at all times. Suites are also good for families looking for a little extra space and beds. Just let us know what you need when you book. Simple!

Cut down on the amount you need to bring with you for your little ones with our baby booster and toddler packs for little kids, with useful items such as a kettle and microwave in your room. Our well-stocked shops in your beachclub also sell nappies, milk, formula milk, suntan lotion and various other goods for children.

What to bring?

All children in our clubs (with the exception of TAG) get a rash vest. Younger children (up to Stingrays age) also get a sun hat and drawstring bag in their club colours. We have lots of baby baths and cots that can be put in your room (on request), there's also a supply of pushchairs that you’re welcome to borrow (subject to availability), plus there’s toys and games galore in the kids’ clubs.

Our beachclubs have an on-site shop or there are stores nearby where you can stock up on baby wipes, nappies, formula and other useful baby bits.
