Beach holiday vs active holiday…

Looking for a holiday but torn between a week sunbathing or a more adventurous holiday? Well of course, there are pros and cons to both types of holiday and which you choose depends very much on your personality and personal tastes…

If you’ve got a high-powered, stressful job then a beach holiday where you have little more to worry about than when to take a dip in the pool and when to get changed for cocktails might be just what the doctor ordered. Make sure it’s truly relaxing and remember to turn your phone off and leave your Blackberry and laptop at home!

For anyone bored of the same scenery and same experiences, a holiday offering a little more in terms of adventure and change might be called for. You could choose a walking holiday in Patagonia, or a backpacking trip around China… whatever takes your fancy! Holidays like this require planning and preparation and are sure to be experiences that you will never forget, if not the most relaxing of holidays.

Of course, there is a happy medium. If you want an element of adventure and excitement but with a spot of sun, sea and sand based relaxation thrown in for good measure, consider holidays offering water-based activities as part of the package. For example: surfing, windsurfing or kitesurfing holidays.

Choosing a holiday package which incorporates water activities allows you to have a beach holiday with a difference; getting you up close and personal with the waves! You won’t be bored and you can still make time to sightsee, enjoy the local cuisine and do a spot of sunbathing.

You can find lots of holiday packages these days which offer plenty of water sports and the opportunity to take lessons in any sports you’re not familiar with. So whether you’re a complete beginner or an old pro, you can enjoy a surfing, kitesurfing or windsurfing holiday. Picking a holiday company which specialises in water sports holidays is recommended to make sure you’re getting a professional and trusted service.
