A quick dip will settle the crankiest of kids, and activities such as kayaking, windsurfing, and wakeboarding will have them begging not to leave the beach. Head over to Stanley and enroll your kids in a few lessons at Aqua-Bound. There are classes for all experience levels, and additional sessions to learn about water safety. After a few days, your children will have gained new skills, independence, leadership, and probably a boat-load of new friends! As the lessons are properly managed and the staff incredibly experienced, you can even go enjoy the Stanley shops and promenade whilst the kids are kept busy!
