We put our best thinking caps on when we created the range of games, toys and activities for the kids aged 2-5 years old, which means they’re not only fun but they’re educational too! Plus, when playing in Turtle Cove your kids will be well supervised by our experienced youth staff. We think that’s pretty cool! From play centre to arts and crafts, theme nights to talent shows – the hardest part of Turtle Cove is deciding what to do first. Please make sure your child is toilet trained, otherwise they won't be able to join in the fun at Turtle Cove.
