Tips for Planning a Family Activity Holiday with BeyondBeach

  1. Research and Choose the Right Destination and Sport: Consider the interests and preferences of your family members and flight options when selecting a yacht sailing holiday, multi-activity beach club or ski holiday. Look for activities and attractions that will appeal to everyone, and check that free tuition and children’s group activities are available if needed.
  2. Plan Ahead: Make sure to book your accommodation, activities, and transportation in advance to avoid any last-minute hassles. This will also give you the opportunity to secure the best deals and availability for your family activity holiday. Popular weeks and school holiday periods are often booked up to a year in advance !
  3. Pack Wisely: Depending on the activities you have planned, make sure to pack appropriate clothing, footwear, and equipment. Don’t forget essentials like sunscreen, rash vests, sun hats, and sailing gloves. Pack light however, as in the summer months you’ll only really need shorts, T-shirts and swimwear.
  4. Stay Flexible: While it’s important to have a plan, be open to unexpected opportunities and changes. Sometimes the best experiences happen when you least expect them. Be prepared to adapt your planned activities based on weather conditions and any unforeseen circumstances. All our sailing activities are of course wind dependent, but there’s lots to do when it’s calm such as biking, beach volley, table tennis, tennis, fitness and more.
  5. Create Memories: Encourage your family members to document their experiences through photos, videos, or a travel journal. These memories of your family’s progress in water sports, the joy of children’s group activities, and the fun-filled moments together will be cherished for years to come. You can also share with us for our social feeds.
