One of the most popular activities during summer holidays is to visit the beach. This is easily done, especially if your children have swimming skills.

Another popular activity to take part in whilst in the Solamar area is the thrilling Scilly Fun fair. Here you can enjoy rides, games, and attractions, as well as the summer barbeques.
If you are looking for more family-friendly activities in the summer months why not consider a family golf retreat? This is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with your children, whilst building up their golfing skills at the same time.

A range of activities, from learning, walking, or playing tennis, to simply enjoying a nice cool drink, means this is the ideal chance for the whole family to enjoy some quality time together. And with courses situated within minutes of the beach, plenty of walking and bike paths to get the family over the course, you will have even more opportunity to spend some quality time with your children.

With so much choice and so many different types of family activities available, there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t consider a family break over Christmas and New Year.

Whether it’s a trip to the park or a day at a water park, or even going on a hiking trip, there’s something for everyone. Whatever you choose, make sure that you make plans ahead of time, because many parks run limited places due to high turnouts during the busy summer season.
