Or fancy Zumba, Aqua Works or island jogs to tone up and burn off holiday calories.

Studio Park Fitness Centre

Hit the courts for a high-octane basketball session - the perfect way to work up an appetite ahead of the evening’s entertainment or simply put your skills to the test.

Beach volleyball and badminton
Our volleyball nets are positioned on the beach and just a few metres from the water, so you can work on your fitness while making the most of the cooling ocean breezes. Or join us for a warm-up after snorkelling with an equally sociable game of badminton at one of our two indoor courts.

Floodlit tennis courts and squash
Challenge yourself to a game of tennis or squash. Our floodlit tennis courts allow you to play in cooler temperatures after sunset. It’s advisable to book ahead for both.

As the heat of the day cools towards sunset, join a team session on our football court followed by a beach swim for the ultimate cool off – or an ice-cold drink with new-found friends at the main bar.

Don’t get the chance to improve your strokes or techniques much in the city? Now’s your chance to catch up. Cycle over to our island-style green for practice.
