The Isle of Man offers plenty of opportunities for splashing and having fun on a family break or simply swimming for fitness.
The National Sports Centre in Douglas is home to superb facilities - pools for children of all ages, waterslides and fountain features plus two competition pools for those wishing to test their endurance or perhaps enjoy a quieter dip away from the children.
There are also three regional pools dotted around the Island - Peel in the West, Castletown in the South and Ramsey in the North - which are well worth a visit.
For those who prefer their fun in the open air, Adventurous Experiences, based in Peel, offers sea kayaking and the rapidly growing pursuit of coasteering among its list of activities.
Visit secret places only accessible by small craft, gaze at spectacular sea cliffs and observe the seals, porpoises and wildlife unobtrusively while keeping one eye out for out for basking sharks feeding!
As well as kayaking and coasteering, Adventurous Experiences offer rock climbing, gorge scrambling and corporate events to suit all tastes. Visit their website to find out more.
