While there is plenty to see indoors, it is the outdoors which showcases the true adventure.

The Tweed’s breathtaking scenery and diverse natural environment is a great excuse to head outdoors. With our subtropical climate and fantastic beaches, landscaped parks and wide open spaces, it’s no surprise that we love our sports and adventure here in the Tweed.

The Tweed offers a wealth of experiences – hike the summit of an ancient volcano to see the sunrise in the morning and take a surfing lesson at a beach that is home to world-surfing champions in the afternoon.

We simply live and breathe outdoor activities  so you won’t be short of options, choose from kayaking, canoeing, diving, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, high ropes courses, deep sea fishing, hiking, horse riding, abseiling, water-skiiing, skateboarding, you name it and we’ve got it on offer.
