Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, an idyllic island hideaway nestled amongst 70 tranquil acres of coconut palms, has launched an exciting new programme of activities for families with older children. Created especially for kids aged 10 to 16, the Young Explorers programme features a series of educational and entertaining sessions that will keep young adults active throughout their stay.
The Young Chef course is held daily and teaches kids how to cook simple Thai dishes overseen by the resort’s chef, potentially sparking a love of the culinary arts. For more active kids, the weekly “Beach Gamer” sessions include a wide range of fun beach sports such as volleyball, mini-petanque and beach soccer.
Youngsters can unleash their inner explorer with a choice of exciting nature-based activities. The Mangrove Explorer activity for example is held every week and allows children to paddle through the mangroves on kayaks and learn more about this enchanting coastal ecosystem.
A Seaside Boot Camp Beach features a series of fun and fitness activities such as yoga and aerobics all held on the resort’s pristine beach, and finally, the monthly Coral Reef Nursery Activity allows Young Explorers to help preserve the resort’s coral reef with a diving or snorkelling trip.
