Activity by the seaside in Cornwall.

TAKE time out in 2009 to learn a new skill without spending a fortune. The Sands Resort, Cornwall, has teamed up with local activity centres to offer a range of land and water based activities.

SURF: The Surf Club will take you through your paces on Mawgan Porth Beach. If you're keen to learn as a family, group lessons start at pounds 25 per person (minimum age 8), or splash out on a private lesson for pounds 65.

POT-HOLING: Overcome any phobia of confined spaces by tackling the Rat Run at Lusty Glaze Beach. Designed to resemble caving and pot-holing, this is a series of narrow tunnels and tight corners at the base of the cliff. Prices start at pounds 12.50.

A four-night break at Sands costs from pounds 200 per person (B & B), based on two sharing. Free child places available on selected dates. Facilities include a gym, indoor pool, Ocean Breeze Spa, tennis and golf in addition to children's clubs and activity areas. Sands Resort is situated at Porth in north Cornwall. Visit or telephone 01637 872864.
