An International Guide to Sporting Vacation Destinations
A relaxing break doesn't have to mean a sedentary week spent in a lounge chair. From the Philippines to southern Spain, some of the most exotic and luxurious destinations in the world offer state-of-the-art sporting facilities for fans of scuba-diving, kite-surfing, rock-climbing, and other active escapes. Here, the health experts at the Q Blog by Equinox profile six active holidays that will take your breath away—for more reasons than one.
Cayman Islands: Scuba Dive
Where to Play: Little Cayman, the 10-mile-long Caribbean island, is known for its crystal clear water and fantastic dives. Don't miss the Bloody Bay Wall, a protected marine park, rated one of the best dive sites in the Caribbean; the steep, 1,000-foot drop is full of narrow canyons and colorful marine life.
Where to Stay: Southern Cross Club Hotel offers a dedicated dive service with morning, afternoon, dusk, and night dives as well as all the requisite courses and certificates.
The Draw: Come on in—the water's fine; temperatures range from 78-86°F and visibility extends over 100 feet.
