Kitesurf holiday with kids club/ childcare?

Postby dave1986 » Sun Jun 23, 2019 9:22 am

My wife and I both kitesurf. We have an 18 month old daughter (will be over 2yrs when we go on holiday).

We're looking for a holiday with the following requirements:
- Kite beach within walking distance from our accommodation
- Daytime childcare / kids club. (We want something with FUN activities for our daughter, not just a creche where she's is kept indoors all day)
- Ideally half-board/ full board.
- Ideally in Europe (but not essential)

We like the Mark Warner / Neilson holidays which have excellent activities for the kids, but not of their resorts are well set-up for kitesurfing.

Thanks in advance
Dave

Assuming your preferred destination is Europe then here’s an idea - if not - ignore the rest of my post.

Never stayed in the resort so can’t vouch for it (see Trip advisor) but have kited here year after year. Awesome spot. Normally rent an apartment nearer town and then drive. I do see a lot of families on the beach taking it in turns and look after kids. Shallow water. Kite shop near by.

Thanks Apollo, but we are really looking for a Kid's Club or children's activity rather than a more basic child minding service. I think we would feel guilty if our daughter wasn't also doing some fun planned activities whilst we're out on the water.

Check Robinson Club Soma Bay in Egypt.

It’s a German Club, but everyone speaks English anyway.

I have been there and can recommend it.

Not sure about minimum child age, check it.

From what I've heard Viva Wyndham Tangerine in the DR fits your needs.

Nice place as well.
Don’t know about the kids program though.
But for sure further away from EU

Thanks. I'll take a look! Although I expect this option may be a little more expensive when flying from the UK

In the DR you can hire a private nanny to watch your kids for $20US/day.

Boavista, Hotel Riu

We used to go there when our daughter was younger. Had a very nice kid's program, and really nice kite conditions during the winter (especially if you are into waves).
