Kids are treated like royalty with a summer program kid’s activities. These activities are supervised by well-trained staff and makes little dreams come true with face painting, a treasure hunt, arts and crafts as well as fishing and a build your own sundae stand!
For the whole family, there are activities galore. Start with a relaxing bit of fishing (all tackle can be bought at onsite store). The resort has a host of fish in the area and can advise fishers on what they may potentially reel in. For a more hands on experience, guests are also welcome to crabbing – dive deep and pick their dinner fresh from the ocean or set a trap and check to see who wanders in. Once the tide recedes, why not complete the seafood feast by going clamming in the tide flats. For those who are lucky when fishing, the resort also has a fish cleaning facility where fishermen can prepare their catch and share a couple stories of close encounters with river monsters.
Guests with their own boats are also welcome to make use of the marina. The marina allows guests to dry dock their boats and has floating docks and a launch area. They also offer gas meaning no need to plan boating adventures out meticulously in order to make the best of a full tank.
For those who are not interested in perfecting the freshest paella on the fire, why not try kayaking. Row along the bay and see the wildlife such as seals, eagles and perhaps and orca whale! Guided trips are offered and can be done at sunset to make the best of the stunning island. For a bit more adrenaline fuel, hop aboard a speed boat and play in the bay or wade in deeper for even more fishing.
If seeing an orca whale is the aim of the game, Outer Island Expedition can provide an up close experience in one of their aluminum boats. At night after a day of seaside activities, gather around the large bonfire and listen to flames crackle as the day draws to a close. Of course, for something more private head to the hot tub and let the warm bubbling water soothe away the stresses.
In addition to all these activities, West Beach Resort also offers a variety of games like ping pong, volleyball and badminton.
