NEW for 2019 - Activity holidays in Spain

Spain is a classic holiday destination for good reason. Away from the tourist hot spots, you’ll discover culture, art, history and fabulous food. The miles of golden beaches and warm seas make activity holidays in Spain a total joy. No wonder we’ve chosen this beautiful country as the location for our newest – and most luxurious – beachclub.   


We’ve chosen Murcia in south-east Spain as the base for Mar Menor Beachclub,  the first of our ‘Select Beachclubs’. It’s a stylish contemporary hotel, custom designed to our highest specifications. From the superb facilities to all the thoughtful little extras, it’s a smart Spanish oasis where you can expect to be spoilt rotten. It’s perfect for couples activity holidays as well as family or solo trips. 
 

Our beachclub in Spain
  • Flights, transfers and accommodation included
  • Breakfast and lunch daily plus five evening meals included
  • Mar Menor Beachclub is situated in the region of Costa Calida, south east Spain
  • Over 300 days of sunshine a year
  • 12 inclusive activities to choose from including dinghy sailing, windsurfing, tennis, mountain and road biking
  • Inclusive kids' clubs for 2-17 year olds

Spain is the perfect holiday destination for a huge range of activities. Our water sports beach is on the shores of the Mar Menor, Europe’s largest saltwater lagoon. The warm, non-tidal waters and consistent thermal breezes are ideal for water sports, especially if you’re learning the ropes. Explore Murcia’s mountainous interiors by bike, with miles of off-road trails and smooth roads to choose from. Unless all you want to do on your Spanish holiday is bask on a comfy sun lounger with a great book and a cocktail. Because that’s fine too, you get to relax as hard you like. 

As well as doing incredible activity holidays, Spain is also a foodie’s paradise. From sociable plates of tapas to amazing wines, the vibrant Spanish cuisine will get your mouth watering.

Family activity holidays to Spain

If you’re looking for the ideal destination for fun family activity holidays, Spain could be right up your street. It’s a relaxed country that warmly welcomes children and our kids’ club team are all set to look after children aged 4 months and older so parents can enjoy some me-time. Make that guilt-free me-time because your little ones will be having so much fun trying loads of fun activities with their new friends! 

Spain is especially family friendly with a short flight from the UK and a swift 40-minute transfer to the Mar Menor beachclub, so hopefully, excitement levels can be kept at bay just long enough to reach the beachclub before splashing around in the lovely freeform pool and separate kids' pool

Activities to do in Spain

With the vast waters of the lagoon and a backdrop of mountains, Mar Menor Beachclub provides fantastic conditions for a wide range of activities for your holiday in Spain.  Get your daily dose of adrenaline with inclusive dinghy sailing and windsurfing. We’ll also be running our own kitesurfing school, as well as dinghy foiling courses for experienced dinghy sailors. Both are available for a supplement. Or if you fancy something gentler, why not give inclusive kayaking or stand up paddle boarding a go?   

And, while the beautiful lagoon is at the heart of the Mar Menor action, you can also take your pick from inclusive mountain biking, road cycling, tennis and fitness classes. The road rides are especially amazing, with miles of smooth, scenic roads to explore. 

We don’t usually offer golf but with six superb golf courses within easy reach of Mar Menor Beachclub, we couldn’t miss the chance to partner up with a local club to offer you the chance to book tee times to fit around your other activities (at a supplement). 

Flamenco

Culture

The Spanish are famously exuberant and love to party! Barely a week goes by without a fiesta, where people take to the streets to celebrate anything from tomatoes to saints with folklore, music, food and wine. 


Another great example of Spanish culture is the music and dance of Flamenco. The Flamenco is uniquely Spanish and hails from the regions of Andalusia, Extremadura and Murcia – where you’ll find our brand new beachclub. Popular all over the world, Flamenco is instantly recognisable from the beautiful outfits, singing, guitar playing, dance, hand clapping and distinct vocals.
 

tapas

Eating like a local

Spain is a nation where food is taken seriously and has become something of a culinary powerhouse in recent years, with some of the most inventive food in the world being produced in its many Michelin starred restaurants. 


Your Euro's will go much further if you fill up on the famous Spanish speciality of tapas. Tapas are small portions of food traditionally served up for free with a drink in a bar. Most bars have a speciality of their own, it could be anything from olives to ham to meatballs to squid and Spanish omelette – whatever you get, it's usually delicious. Tapas are rarely free these days but still make a cheap and tasty snack. You may also come across raciones, which are larger plates of tapas – perfect if you’re feeling hungry or as a sharing plate.


When sampling the tapas, it would be a shame not to try some of the country’s excellent wines. Spain has many famous wine producing regions, not least La Rioja and Ribero del Duero. If you’re celebrating, the Spanish equivalent of Champagne is cava, a delicious sparkling wine from the Catalan region.
