Although stuffing my face and sipping on delicious, fruity cocktails was thorough bliss (see previous post), some of the happiest highlights of my vacation feature a splash of fun, adrenaline and some good ol’ adventure!

That being said, keep scrolling to see a few of the things the crew and I got up to during our stay at Turtle Bay Beach Club 😀

Water Toys!

Having fun on the water is more than just taking a dip in the pool, or going out for a boat ride. Sometimes the real fun means water sports, which go hand-in-hand with fun (sometimes intimidating) water toys.

I have to admit that despite the fantastic guidance we got from the Turtle Bay Fun Base team, getting the hang of Windsurfing was no walk in the park…

DSC_7087 …but once I got the gist of things, I was blown away (pun intended) with wonder and awe and I just had to have more! I love that this sport doesn’t require much athletic ability, because helloo? I’m on vacation! 😛 It’s literally just you and the forces of nature – wind and water – working together to have the time of your life.

DSC_7040Looks like we weren’t the only ones having a blast! 😀

Fun and Games!

If you’re looking for more pool fun and action than you can get from just swimming, then Water Polo is definitely your speed. Being a combination of swimming, rugby/wrestling and basketball, this game is definitely fast paced and fun to play, but it’s also the easiest way to make new friends and judging from the pictures, it’s super exciting to watch too!

DSC_5532 Don’t be fooled by his size. This little goal-keeper was on some serious mission! Lol!

Toes In The Sand

The sun is shinning, the ocean waves are rolling in and your feet are sinking in the warm sand. You and your teammates are facing a big net and the team on the other side is waiting for you to start serving…


The best part about Beach Volleyball is being out in the sunshine and enjoying the fresh air! If you love the beach, but get bored of lying on a towel all day, then this sport is definitely your glass of champagne 😉



Easy Does It!

If you prefer a low-key approach to a day at the beach, then you’re in for a mighty treat!


A beach vacation should be completely relaxing, among other things, so I took every chance I got to park myself under a shady umbrella, enjoy the warm breeze and soak up the breath-taking surroundings. There may never be enough time in your everyday life to even flip through an entire magazine, so when a beautiful opportunity to be still and toast the setting sun knocks at your door, you gladly take it 🙂

We set out in search of an action-packed adventure and boy, did we get that and then some! Although we were not able to capture every single moment of our stay, there are quite a few treasures at the hotel, just waiting to be discovered 😛
Thank you, Turtle Bay Beach Club for such an amazing stay! We absolutely cannot wait to be back 🙂
