Family Swim Holidays

The perfect holiday for all the family

Family Swim Holidays

If you are looking for a holiday to suit all members of the family, you have come to the right place! Our Family Swim Holidays allow parents and non-swimmers to enjoy a fabulous holiday relaxing in the beautiful surroundings, or exercising to their heart’s content whilst the children have the invaluable experience of being coached by former olympians.

Swimmers will have the opportunity to excel their swimming with a largely technique focused program in an incredibly supportive, encouraging and motivational setting. Not only this, but they will have the experience of training with and learning from like minded athletes and coaches from across the world.

Alongside all of this, it is outside of the pool where lifelong friendships often form. Throughout the holiday there are lots of fun activities to keep the whole family entertained, from a family quiz to a table tennis tournament and even a trip to a water park!

It really is the perfect combination of training and fun!

Can I come on a Family Swim Holiday?

If you are a swimmer aged 6-18 years old and are used to training regularly with a swim team, yes! We cater for all levels of swimmer from club to international standard.

I cannot and never will be able to put into words what The Best Centre has done for my Grace’s spirit. You made her feel so valued. Maybe I should just convey what she said in her own words to me last night!!! “Swimming in Spain and being trained by Matt has lit a fire in me that no matter what will never be put out. I swim for me, Matt and The BEST centre.” (I think that says it all)! Thank you again, to all of you.

Grace and I are so proud to be part of The BEST Centre family.

What to expect

In the pool

Training sessions will be heavily technique focused, incorporating all four strokes as well as workshops focusing specifically on the core aspects of every race:


Although swimmers will work hard in order to improve, all sessions are organised creatively to ensure enjoyment. Training in this way creates an effective environment where swimmers are having fun whilst learning, and take a great attitude about their sport back to their own home club.

Outside of the pool

Although this is a swim holiday, we offer so much more! As you can see in the table (and on the example itinerary on the brochure), outside of training we have a fun-filled schedule with lots of fun activities perfect for the whole family, along with plenty of free time to relax. Lastly, our presentation evening is the perfect way to end your fun-filled holiday where you can say “see you next year!” to your new coaches and friends.

Our fifth year at the Family Swim Holidays has been great for all three of us, like the other years. It is nice to see that the centre manages well the mix of swim levels (kids at National Championship level and kids who only swim 2 or 3 times a week).

SUPERB – the kids enjoyed new drills even after eleven billion hours of training at home.

Littlefield Family

Thank you and all the coaches for making our first BEST Centre holiday such a memorable one. On our final day, at the awards evening, it felt like we’d known everyone for months not just ten action-packed days. The whole Nugent family had the best holiday that we could have imagined.

Will we have time as a family on our own?
Yes, there is time when we are not swimming or doing other activities that can be spent as a family. As seen on page 8 of the brochure between the swim sessions and activities families have free time.
Who will be coaching my children?
All our coaches are former international or Olympic swimmers and qualified coaches. We also have special guest weeks with Olympic medallists and Olympic coaches.
What language are the sessions coached in?
The sessions are coached in English. Some of our coaches are able to speak more than one language if any swimmer is struggling to understand. Lots of swimmers also translate and help each other if someone does not understand something. Parents are able to translate also.
Do you organise flights?
We can organise everything from the moment you land at the airport in Palma, although as we are not a flight agency, we unfortunately do not book flights. You book your flights, and we’ll take care of the rest.
