While some holidaymakers like nothing more than whiling away their days on a beach, sipping cocktails and snoozing, it’s understandable that others like their getaways to be that little bit more active.
So, if you’re planning on taking a holiday this year and you’re looking for the perfect blend of activity and luxurious relaxation, here are a couple of suggestions that might just fit the bill.
Skiing in the French Alps
When considering ski holidays in France, there are endless possibilities. Few options, however, can match the majesty of Club Med’s Chamonix Mont-Blanc resort. You can also click here to see more about top European destinations for skiing.
Nestled at the foot of Mont Blanc, the Chamonix Mont-Blanc resort, which sits at a height of 3,400 ft, has recently undergone a renovation by the architect Jacques Garcia. So, in addition to enjoying a spot of alpine skiing, snowboarding and snowshoe walks after a few refresher lessons with the resort’s experienced instructors, you can relax in the beautifully designed Club Med Spa, before recharging your batteries in the relative seclusion of your suite.
Scuba diving and big game fishing
There’s something truly magical about the Maldives. The archipelago epitomises luxury living and while its white sand beaches have an obvious appeal for those in search of a secluded place to relax, the Maldives’ lively underwater marine population offers the more active holidaymaker more than enough to keep him or her busy.
With crystal-clear waters, filled with turtles, sharks, Napoleon fish, manta rays, stingrays, moray eels and lionfish, scuba diving in the Indian Ocean is a truly unforgettable experience. And if that’s not enough, and you fancy yourself a bit of a fisherman, why not really put your skills to the test by trying your hand at big game fishing? Trying to land a tuna or a barracuda truly is a workout like no other.
Getting in shape in Florida
The Sandpiper Bay Resort in Florida is where the active family goes to relax, but they can also hone their skills in an array of sports.
The Club Med resort of Sandpiper Bay has its own 18-hole golf course, as well as a fitness and tennis academy. So, whether you’re eager to work on your swing, push your tennis game to the next level, or you just want to get in shape so that you look great on Miami’s beaches, the Sandpiper Resort is the all-in-one holiday destination solution for the active family.
A holiday to suit you
Choosing the right destination can make or break your holiday, so it’s important to spend some time considering your options. Whether you choose an African adventure, an American challenge or an adrenaline-fuelled trip down the slopes of the French Alps, the one thing you can rely on when booking a Club Med holiday, is that your every need will be well and truly catered for.
