Give your summer holiday an extra dimension with our incredibly popular watersports holidays with leading suppliers such as Mark Warner, Club Med and Neilson. Learn a new activity such as sailing -or perhaps reacquaint yourself with the exhilaration of racing through turquoise waters with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face - but why not use the opportunity to try another watersport such as waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, scuba diving, kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding. Equipment and expert tuition are provided, of course, and very often a recognised certificate too.
The locations for these incredible holidays are sparkling jewels of the Mediterranean, including Greece, Turkey, Sardinia, Rhodes and Corsica. Beautiful bays, white sand beaches with a lush green backdrop, and stunning mountain views. The resorts we feature often have comfortable accommodation, a wide range of stylish accommodation, swimming pools, tennis courts, landscaped gardens, spa facilities, cycling, delicious dining options and dedicated kids clubs – boredom is not an option!
But for something a little different – in fact, a lot different – why not take a flotilla holiday with Neilson. Sail away with other yachts for either one or two weeks and discover hidden gems and rarely visited treasures in the Ionian Sea, famed for its sheltered waters and light winds. Discover Paxos, home to enchanting beaches and tavernas overlooking the sea, or Corfu, the second largest Ionian island and with the main town’s old quarter now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A full briefing is given by expert Neilson staff beforehand, but you’ll need at least two qualified sailors in your party. You may prefer the Stay & Sail option, where the first week is spent in resort receiving expert ‘hands on’ tuition. In the second week, once you’ve learnt the ropes, you skipper your own yacht up, down and around the Ionian islands and coastline, an experience that you’ll never forget. Your travels will take off the beaten track, seeing the undiscovered Ionian islands and incredible marine life, all under your own steam.
