Christmas break

Presents first thing or post-feast? Leisurely beach stroll or life-affirming sea swim? We all have our different Christmas traditions.

Expect family challenges in the games room, wreath workshops, Santa surfing and (hobby) reindeer racing on the beach, Father Christmas in The Living Space snug and seasonal festive menus throughout.

Our four-night Christmas break includes breakfast and dinner, Christmas Day lunch, activities and all the festive trimmings. 

Christmas at the Bay

Here's a taste of what we've got planned so far... Keep checking back as we'll be adding more throughout the year.

What to expect

Book our four night Christmas house party and stay with us from 23 - 27 December. 

23 December 2024

Arrive early. Drop your shoes and settle down overlooking the waves, with a glass of mulled wine and freshly baked mince pies. Explore the beach at your own pace, or catch a wave on a surf lesson. In the afternoon, unleash your creativity at our wreath-making workshop, followed by an hour or two in Swim Club.

As the sun begins to set, think about dinner in one of our three restaurants. Throughout the day, little ones can join sessions in Kids' Zone, while the evening hums with live music, this is Christmas at Watergate Bay.

Christmas Eve

Today is for hobby reindeer. Spend the morning crafting your own in Kids' Zone, ready for the annual competition on the beach. Join a Santa Surf session with Wavehunters where fancy dress is encouraged. Father Christmas preparation stations are underway with reindeer food, carrots and mince pies. And, as the day turns into night sing carols on sea lane with a hot chocolate from Cubs.

Christmas Day

Happy Christmas / Nadelik Lowen!

Today is for taking is easy and making it up as you go along. Take a walk on the beach, unwind in Swim Club or sink into the arm chairs in the ocean room.

Champagne breakfast and storytime with Father Christmas in The Living Space snug with gifts for the children. 

Celebrate Christmas Day lunch in The Beach Hut and The Living Space, and an evening festive buffet in the The Living Space dining room. 

Boxing Day

A Boxing Day dip for the hardy, family challenges in the Kids' Zone games room and supervised sessions and entertainment throughout the day. 

As the sun sets, live music in The Living Space begins. 

Wednesday 27 December

One final breakfast and a dip in the pool before we say goodbye, until next year!

Champagne toast at New Year

New Year by the sea

Our New Year three-night dinner inclusive break starts on the 30 December until 2 January, but you can stay as long as you like.
