Calling all children, mums and dads to join us for a fun-filled, action-packed holiday. Enjoy the sun, sea and sand in totally new ways, sailing away to explore exciting options in stunning surroundings on land and along the Adriatic coast. There is something for all the family at Regent Porto Montenegro, a five-star hotel located in the nautical village of Porto Montenegro. The most exhilarating activities are all at your fingertips, including handpicked tours, trips and water sports, children’s camps, boat rides and nautical visits.
NAUTICAL EXPERIENCES: The ‘Hero’ submarine is just a few footsteps away, where a guided tour takes you around the iconic vessel built in Split in 1968. Step onto this giant which sailed 46,659 nautical miles, a distance that would take you around the earth twice!
The most sought-after tour from the skilled Concierge is the Boka Bay boat tour, perfect for families, with the added value of a visit to the Aquarium Boka. This half day out on the water followed by a stroll around mediaeval towns and villages looks as if it just emerged from a favourite fairytale. Wonderful shots can be taken above the still waters of Boka Bay and at the points where pirates tried to slip their boats into the waters, only stopped by chains slung between the hills. At the Aquarium, marvel at the many species of fish and marine life – the guided tour is a fascinating introduction to your visit.
SUMMER CAMPS: Highly praised and valued by the expat community in Montenegro is Knightsbridge Schools International, which runs two Summer camps: for preschoolers* and children aged 6 – 16. A vast selection of arts and crafts, indoor and some outdoor games are reserved for the preschoolers, while Knightsbridge School Adventure ** encompasses different water activities like: kayaking, sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, team-building games and group sports, as well as arts and crafts projects indoors. Once a week, campers will have a day trip to a nearby national or aqua park.
FOOTBALL FANS: For youngsters and teens keen on to ‘the beautiful game’ Real Madrid Camp*** offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take part in a football camp hosted by world-class coaches from the Real Madrid Foundation. The Camp’s series of five-day programmes across six weeks features football sessions hosted twice a day. Individuals will be assessed at the start of the programme before teams are divided and the training is adapted according to existing skills. Open to boys and girls of all levels, groups of 25 will be split into two
age groups to enhance their football skills, boost technical and tactical know-how and prepare players for competitions. Benefits include:
- Two daily sessions of training, five times a week
- Complimentary Real Madrid Foundation training kit
- Certificate of participation
- A chance to train at Real Madrid Foundation Camp for the most talented participants
WATER SPORTS: For family members who enjoy water sports, there are plenty to choose from. Nearby Porto Montenegro’s Sailing Squadron (recommended age 8 – 16) sessions allow children to learn all aspects of dinghy sailing, from preparation, launching and on-water activities, to washing down and stowing the boats. Kayaking is a great way to create memories of a lifetime on a family tour while gliding though the calm waters of Boka Bay on a kayak. Families can then head to an elegant seafront restaurant to enjoy a lunch of freshly caught fish and seafood.
AROUND THE BAY: Getting to know your surroundings is best done with a local tour guide to explore the bay by Tuk Tuk (small electric vehicles ideal for a semi-private or private tour of the bay). This is a great way to capture splendid pictures. For those who want to brush up their cookery skills, a lesson for all the family from a top Chef at Regent Porto Montenegro could be the ideal option. The highly skilled culinary professional will show you how to prepare a typical seafarers’ meal, while the lesson can be adapted to each family’s particular tastes and style.
THE BLUE ROOM: The outdoor café at the Blue Room Porto Montenegro is quickly becoming a favourite hang-out spot just steps away from the hotel. It is the go-to spot for parents to enjoy their chosen drink while children play in the spacious large open green of the Porto Montenegro Arena. Boasting lawn games, archery, laser clay shooting and many other daily activities as well as ping pong and table football, it also features newly released video games and a golf simulator.
The offers Stay Longer and Save and The biggest game of the year, with the Real Madrid Camp fees included, are great ways to help you plan your summer in the sun.
