The many sporting leisure activities at Wild Coast Sun
Wild Coast Sun, Sun International’s only beachfront resort, has been a family holiday destination for over 40 years, with an abundance of activities to choose from.
For those who don’t enjoy a holiday unless it includes plenty of sporting action, the resort is just the ticket for year-round activities guaranteed to raise your heart rate.
Whether you consider yourself a Federer, Nadal or Williams sister on the tennis court or a Tiger Woods or Gary Player on the golf course, there are adrenalin aplenty sports pastimes to love every moment of your holiday.
For the less active members of your group, you can leave them to soak up the sun or enjoy a spa pampering, while you work up a sweat.

Saturday Fun Run
Get your Discovery weekly step count up and join other guests for an informal 5km run fun through the beautiful surrounds of the resort. During the week, follow the signs for guidance.
Gather outside reception, the run takes place every Saturday at 07h30
Petrified Forest beach walks
If you prefer walking to running, take a stroll along the coastline and enjoy a guided educational tour about the 80-million-year-old fossilised trees and deposits which lie on the rocks.
An oblivious person walking along the beach will be completely unaware of what lies below their feet, so a guide is essential to appreciate the history and sights.
The tour starts from Wild Waves Water Park, and you walk 2km along the breathtakingly unspoilt beach, to the caves before heading back. Enquire at the hotel reception.

Quad biking and Segway tours
Four wheels means freedom, and no experience is necessary to jump on a quad bike and command your iron beast down rough trails in a stunning setting. As long as you’re over the age of 16, a quick tutorial and safety briefing are all you require before you opt for tours of 30-minutes, 45-minutes or one hour. As tempting as it may be, don’t go for all-out speed, or you may miss incredible wildlife sightings.
No experience is needed to jump on a Segway and explore the resort’s wild natural beauty while on a guided tour.
Both are situated near the Wild Waves Water Park, bookings 24-hours in advance is required.
