And for the oldest and youngest generation who may not be quite as adventurous, we also offer activities that are beginner friendly and accessible to most fitness levels. There’s no better way to reconnect the family than by spending time together in the outdoors away from social media, Netflix and Playstation!

The Gower Peninsula
Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Bays & Beaches
Coasteering, Surfing, Rock-Climbing
The incredible Gower Peninsula has long been under the radar as a quality beachy UK destination, but recently this coastal area in South Wales has become increasingly popular and for good reason! The Gower is the first ‘designated area of outstanding natural beauty’ in the UK and offers loads of stunning beaches as well as epic outdoor activities. There is a nice consistent swell if you fancy taking your family on a private surf-lesson or for those looking to push some boundaries, Rhossili Bay is awesome for a coasteering adventure. The Gower is also just a beautiful place to explore and there is an extensive network of walking trails too (such as Three Cliffs Bay and from Mumbles to Langland). Big Blue offers lovely places to stay here for large family getaways, such as private lodges & bunkhouses as well as glamping (safari tents) and hotels. There are lots of quality pubs in The Gower, great for tasty family meals, or you’ll find even more options in Swansea. Get a quote today and we will put a tailor-made beachy family holiday together for you in the Gower Peninsula. Or have a look at our Gower page for more info on the area and activities!

A visit to Cardiff & Brecon Beacons combines the best of both worlds… a city trip and outdoor activities. Opt for a stay in Cardiff or make a day visit out of it and stay in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It’s easy to combine a variety of activities on your family reunion in South Wales. One of our most popular adventures here is gorge walking; scramble across the river, jump into rockpools and slide off waterfalls… a family friendly activity! The city centre itself offers indoor surfing (bodyboarding) as well as rafting on a thrilling man-made course. Don’t forget the cultural highlights such as a visit to Cardiff Castle or Cardiff Bay. Big Blue offers quality group accommodation options, from private villas and hotels in Cardiff to countryside lodges and cottages in Brecon Beacons, we’ve got you covered.

UK’s Only Coastal National Park
Walking Trails & Bays
Sea-Kayaking, Coasteering, Tree-Tops
If you’re after a family trip to the coast, then Pembrokeshire is highly recommended as a destination for an active family reunion in Wales. This coastal national park is known for the Welsh coast path; passing rugged rock-formations and little bays and picturesque villages such as Solva, Porthgain & St. Davids (Britain’s smallest city). Tenby is a very popular day trip with families, famous for its colourful houses, cute harbour and nice shops. Popular watersports in Pembrokeshire include sea-kayaking (double and single kayaks, easy to balance, great for the more and less adventurous in the family), coasteering and wake-boarding at the wakepark! You may also want to try your hand at rock-climbing or the Tree-Tops trail, which comes with a section for adults and one for children. The west coast of Wales offers quality cottages and lodges to stay at, as well as B&B’s and family friendly campsites. Just get in touch and we’ll create an awesome package for your large family getaway in Pembrokeshire! Or have a look at our Pembrokeshire page for more info on the area and activities!

You don’t have to drive far to get a hit of adventure. From the famous activities at ZipWorld, to paddleboarding on one of the mountain lakes and from hiking to the summit of Snowdon to canyoning in one of the many gorges, North Wales has it all. Choose to stay in a log-cabin or cottage in the heart of Snowdonia or opt for some glamping on the coast of Anglesey. North Wales is super scenic and we’d love to show you some of the natural highlights as well as alpinesque villages such as Betws-y-Coed.
