Fun Activities On Treasure Island For The Whole Family

Follow Us:

A Treasure Island is one of those places that you should definitely visit, regardless of the way you travel. While you can get quite a bit of activity by visiting it on your own (as a solo traveler) or with a partner, the best way to visit a Treasure Island is definitely with your family. Why? Well, because it has a lot of activities to offer every single member. With that in mind and without further ado, here are some fun activities on Treasure Island that the whole family could benefit from. 

1. Renting out a boat

There’s no better way to embark on an adventure than on your own boat. Any parent knows that taking children on a cruise can be a proper pain. For a family that’s used to traveling by car, the idea that they can’t just stop when they want and make a break whenever they feel like it seems unfair (almost unrealistic). When you control your own vessel, this simply won’t be true.

Fortunately, there’s a place where you can rent a boat on Treasure Island and embark on an adventure from there. This is a unique opportunity for your kids to find out about a completely new form of travel. It’s also a unique way to give them an adventure that they will never forget about. Start making some of your kids’ most cherished childhood memories. 

This doesn’t have to be a one-time thing. You can turn boating into a family tradition that, one day, your kids will hopefully continue doing with their kids. Being out in the fresh salty air is quite healthy, and allowing them to help you commandeer the vessel will help them develop new skills. 

Modern boats are better than their predecessors, which means that they’re much easier to control. You don’t have to be a seasoned sailor in order to do so.

2. Water sports

Boats are not the only form of vessel that you can rent out on Treasure Island. 

Few sports engage as many muscles as kayaking. The basic technique is pretty easy to understand but hard to master. If you’re a fitness enthusiast who’s scared of getting out of shape or reversing your progress while on a family vacation, a quick kayaking session will help you solve this problem for good. The best thing about paddling is that it can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be. Just take it at your own pace. 

Jet skiing is an incredibly adrenaline-inducing activity. So, if this is the direction you want to take and give your (older) kids a chance to experience something new, this might be just the thing you need. Just keep in mind that the minimum age usually goes from 16-18, which is something you have to inquire about.

Another amazing adventure worth considering is parasailing. This is a relaxed activity that anyone not afraid of height has to try at least once in their lifetime. 

Needless to say, there are plenty of locations across Treasure Island where you can do any of these activities and rent out high-quality equipment. Thanks to the fact that Treasure Island is a known tourist location, the staff is always friendly and accommodating. 

3. Having fun on the beach

Whenever you’re lacking inspiration for daily activities, taking your kids to the beach is a no-brainer. However, Treasure Island has even more to offer. Just keep in mind that a whole-day visit to the beach may require a simple adjustment to your usual morning skincare routine.

It’s home to some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in all of Florida, which makes it an incredible hotspot for sandcastle-building activities of all sorts. The fact that the beaches here are incredibly wide makes them ideal, as waves won’t reach too far and ruin the progress of some of the younger kids. This is also home to Sanding Ovations, arguably the biggest sand-sculpting competition in the world. This alone is worth visiting Treasure Island for. 

Not only that, but this is one of the best beaches on the continent for kite-flying. If you go there at the right time of the year (mid-January), you could even visit during the Treasure Island Kite Festival. Seeing the sky during the festival can be just as impressive as the Cappadocian hot air balloon festival, and this particular event is much closer and cheaper to attend. 

For adults, there are some amazing places on the beach where you can get some of the best local beverages. This is what makes Treasure Island a decent option, even for those who travel without kids (solo travelers or couples traveling). 

4. Mini golf adventures

Treasure Island has a lot of great mini-golf spots nearby and this is an amazing way to spend a part of the vacation with your kids. You can take them to the Smuggler’s Cove Adventure Golf, Polynesian Putter, or Congo River Golf. Each of these has a name that already reveals the theme and it’s up to you to decide where you want to go. 

Games like min-golf are more than just fun. They’re also quite educational. First of all, any competitive game can teach your kids a number of social soft skills. For instance, you can teach them how to take a defeat with grace or how to be gracious in victory. The benefits of mini-golf for a kid’s development of motor abilities are more than obvious.

Another thing you need to take into consideration is the fact that mini-golf promotes physical activity. In the age where most of your kids prefer doing activities that are exclusively screen-based, this will be an amazing break.

Lastly, it’s a fun group activity that will bring you all closer together. A family that plays together stays together. 

Wrap up

Ultimately, it all comes down to a few things.

First, the number of family members and their ages matters quite a bit. A trip with small kids is planned differently than one where your kids are already teens or older. Second, the duration of your stay. It’s easy to underestimate Treasure Island, but you must understand one thing – the place has to offer more than you expect. This is why a brief visit won’t allow you to try all that a place has to offer.

Lastly, don’t forget to adjust the itinerary to the plan and interests of your own family.
