@ Guludo Beach Lodge
With plenty to keep the children entertained, most families stay with us for at least one week. All activities are child friendly, here are some more specific details...
Island Trips and Snorkelling
With our children's life jackets and snorkelling equipment visiting neighbouring islands and snorkelling is both safe and a wonderful family activity. If needed we can give snorkelling tuition to parents and children.
Children and Scuba Diving
Guludo is a "PADI Dive Resort" which means it has a fully operational dive centre. Children from the age of 10 can try diving; either through a half day course with one to one tuition ending with a shallow dive off Rolas Island or the full PADI Open Water dive course, qualifying them to dive anywhere in the world. Of course, safety must come first and our PADI Instructor, Rhys, will evaluate the child to check they are mature and sensible enough to dive safely before starting the course.
Visiting Guludo Village & Football Games
This is often the highlight of a stay at Guludo, both for children and adults alike. Children can visit Guludo's old school and new school, while teenagers especially, often enjoy seeing some of our charity's projects including helping dish up food for the school feeding project and making local crafts with the craft groups. Whenever boys, girls (or dads) are interested, we can organise either school or adult friendly football games; a wonderful way for children to break through the cultural and linguistic barriers, to have fun with Guludo girls and boys of the same age.
Babysitting while parents are busy on activities
If parents would like to scuba dive or do other activities without their children we can easily organise one of our resident "mother hens" to baby-sit. This can also be arrange during the evening time.
We do understand that planning for a family holiday can be difficult at the best of times so please don't hesitate in contacting us to assist you throughout the process.
