Sailing

We have an array of RYA courses and lessons from free introduction to refresher and improver lessons.  

Windsurfing

This all-round resort is great for windsurfers, especially intermediates. Beginners will excel in the light morning winds and can practice their balance and control while intermediate windsurfers take to the waters in the afternoons as the winds pick up for some great blasting across the bay.

This fast growing sport is fun and easy to learn (unlike surfing!) and what's more you will benefit from a strong 'core' workout. Within an hour or two you will find you are more than comfortable on your board on the water.
 

SUP boarding as it is often referred to can be done in a variety of conditions. When learning, flat calm conditions are recommended. Starboard SUP boards are available for use free of charge.  

Kayaking

Why not gain a different perspective of your resort! Hit the beach and take a kayak out to sea and enjoy the views, peace and chance to explore the coastline.

Kayaking is a great way to explore the area in much more detail and give you time to enjoy the views of the island at your own leisurely pace.
