What’s on at Sands during the Easter Holidays?
Only a bit more than a week to go now and it looks like we are going to have a brilliant time here at Sands during the Easter holidays 2013. Fingers crossed it will slowly starting to get a bit warmer outside, ideal for a coastal walk to Watergate Bay. On the way you can admire the first spring flowers blooming and the gorse bushes will lull you in their beautiful scent of vanilla and coconut.
Once you reach the beach try and find some drift wood and shells for some Easter beach art with the kids or try your skills in crab fishing and rock pooling.
Back at the hotel warm up with a luxurious hot chocolate with extra cream, chocolate buttons and marshmallows before you have to make a very difficult decision: “What to do next?”
