Whether you want to lie back with a book in the shade of a mini palm tree, paddle gently in a kayak, or get out on the water with the latest windsurf kit, with Ocean Elements Beach Clubs, you and the kids can do it all. Beach club holidays in Greece allow you to be as active or as relaxed as you like, in some of the most picturesque locations in Greece. Offering a wide range of inclusive activities for families to try including dinghy sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, mountain biking, and stand-up paddle boarding, there is more than enough at a beach club resort to keep everyone entertained – even notoriously hard-to-please teens.
The clubs offer a safe environment to learn to sail with inclusive training from RYA-qualified staff as well as free kids' clubs, for little ones aged four to 12. The warm waters of the Greek resorts shelve very gently and offer calm conditions so the kids can wade out for quite a distance without getting out of their depth.
Ocean Elements know that some children want to be go, go, go, while others enjoy a more relaxed holiday and their staff are pros at selecting age-appropriate activities. Whether your kids are bursting with confidence, or a little shy, they'll be chatting to new friends and enjoying a host of activities in no time.
While the kids are enjoying themselves, adults can try out the wide range of activities for themselves, or sit back with a glass of wine and recharge the batteries. Ocean Elements hotels have private gardens which front onto the beach, as well as beach bars and sun loungers looking out over the sea. Once you're reclining on a lounger, gazing out over the ocean, you'll wonder why you hadn’t booked this sooner!
As a popular family destination in the summer months, promising warm sunshine, beautiful scenery and crystal clear waters to splash and swim in, Greece won’t disappoint.
