I took my granddaughter out for a spin on a Hobie. It was a pretty good experience and she enjoyed whizzing round and round the pond. The cats don't have tiller extensions, which is a bit of a shame, but for what it is, great fun.

Kids went on the water float which they enjoyed although it seems better for younger kids. They only got 15 minutes on it so pretty short visit.

Located on the lake between The Shack and Casa Do Lago. Arturs has a great range of water sports for all the family. The most popular is the inflatable assault course which kids and adults love. They have all types boats on the lake. Everything from Kayaks, paddle boards, swans, sailing boats and lots of other family friendly boating activities. Life jackets available for everyone with lots of staff who are very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.

Pedal boats, Paddle and you can even learn to sail!
The children can go out on the lake whilst you lay back and relax. Eat at either of the 2 eateries nearby. A lovely day out with the family.
