Whether it’s the size of the country, dedication to conserving traditions or simply part of a sharing culture, Spain is hard to beat for fantastic skill-building holidays. And there’s just about anything you can think of on offer. So while it might be a bit early to introduce kids to Flamenco guitar or cooking classes at La Boqueria, a fun-for-life sailing holiday on Menorca begins teaching kids the ropes from as young as six.
It’s not really surprising that the most family-friendly Balearic has this type of experience covered and Minorca Sailing are the best of the best on the island.
You can mix group and private tuition, learn to windsurf and sail, raise the game if you aren’t a complete novice or start from scratch. Naturally there’s a bit of downtime to explore, but mostly you and the kids will be out on the water for as long as it takes to have you sailing like a master mariner.
Seven nights with Minorca Sailing in July or August for four people including all tuition, crèche and kids club for under sixes, self-catering beach villa and return flights from Gatwick to Mahon costs from £2036 per person.
