The sheltered waters and calm conditions make
sailing for beginners ideal
. Novice or expert water-skiers and wake boarders can make the most of the flat water throughout the day, with the premium package available to book for a supplement for those who are really keen.
For the more energetic, the Retreat is a particularly good option for those looking to enjoy a comprehensive fitness programme
. There is often a guided bike ride, fitball, gym and tennis sessions, as well as road bikes, swim coaching, a dedicated triathlon training camp and specialist yoga weeks. One of the most popular activities is to take a kayak and explore the secluded coves
surrounding the club. In the afternoon the sailing area extends beyond the island for intermediates to make the most of the breeze further out.
Alternatively, for a supplement you can book a Day Sail where a qualified skipper escorts you during a day of sailing where you can sit and relax or get a taste of yacht sailing under the guidance of the skipper.
As the sun dips in the sky, informal games of volleyball are organised, either in the pool or on the sand court. For those who prefer a gentler pace there is table tennis, boules or maybe a relaxing massage in the spa area
before a pre-dinner cocktail.
