I last visited Outdoor Adventure in 91 and 92. I was impressed then by the location, the excellent staff, good equipment and great food so I decided to book again seeing it was run by the same people. Upon arriving with my son and niece (both 14 years old) I was a little concerned that maybe things might have been watered down however this was most definitely not the case - we had a brilliant time.
We did coasteering (probably our favourite activity) surfing, body boarding, coastal traversing, climbing, windsurfing and archery. All the activities were well organised with OA striking the right balance between safety and excitement. Unlike a recent PGL holiday where most of the activity time was spent waiting for a turn then 5 mins actually doing the activity at OA were just got on with it - fantastic.
My son and niece both quickly made friends with other children of similar age and were able to be more independent by eating on their own in the evenings and going off to the beach after supper and then coming back to play Monopoly rather then watching television.
We had an absolutely great time doing exciting, different things and were all exhausted by the end of the holiday - oh and the food was excellent too !!
Thanks for a really memorable holiday
