These days, many parents view school holidays as an

opportunity for their children to gain an altogether

di�erent type of education on activity breaks

where they can learn new, or improve existing,

skills. We're still looking for some RR on our family

escapes, but we want our children to have the

benet of fresh experiences that will add more to their lives

than just happy memories of sun, sea and sand. It was with this

in mind that my family checked out the SuperSkills netball and

rugby academies now on o�er at Forte Village in Sardinia (see

overleaf). But if netball and rugby don't appeal, there are plenty

of other holiday options available, so read on for a round-up of

some of the great activity-based breaks on o�er.

Sailing in Mauritius

Where better to learn to sail than somewhere with clear blue skies,

ne white sand, turquoise waters and a gentle breeze? Where

better than Mauritius? The Shandrani Hotel  Spa on the southeast

coast in the Blue Bay Marine Park is a great choice for families. Its

sailing club caters for adults and children from 6 years, with guests

learning or improving their sailing skills in a fun, safe and structured

environment. As a member of the Mauritius Yachting Association and

accredited by the International Sailing Association, the Shandrani runs

courses of all levels and o�ers guests the opportunity to leave with

an internationally recognised qualication. On shore, try your hand

at pitch and putt or just indulge in some sun-lounger time on one of

the three private beaches.

Price for a family of four (children under 12) from £3,605 in a deluxe

room on a half-board basis, including ights, transfers, land and

watersports. Sailing lessons extra; beachcombertours.co.uk

Scuba diving in Crete

The crystal clear waters of Mirabello Bay in Crete make it the perfect

spot for underwater exploration, and guests at the ve-star Elounda

Peninsula all-suite property overlooking the bay have the opportunity

to gain an internationally recognised dive qualication. From the age

of 8 years children can 'make like Nemo' by undertaking a PADI open

water diver course. The protected conditions in the bay enable all

training to be carried out in the sea, and give children the chance to

spot starsh, seahorses, colourful coral, and an abundance of other

fascinating —ora and fauna.

Price for a family of four from £13,445 based on a seven-night stay in

two Peninsula sea view junior suites on a B…B basis, including transfers

and ights, and an open water course for two children;
