Whether you’re planning a summer getaway or a weekend vacation with your little ones, The Beach Club Resort & Spa in Gulf Shores, Alabama, promises an unforgettable family adventure. Filled with fun and interactive activities for kids, this beachside paradise makes it possible for the whole family to revel in the joys of beach life. Here are five cool activities that will keep your kids happily engaged throughout your stay.

1. Toby the Turtle Dance Parties

Toby the Turtle is our resort’s shell-tacular mascot, and he hosts poolside dance parties that are sure to make your child’s day. These groovy shindigs allow kids to express their energy and creativity while making new friends (and working out those pre-nap wiggles). Not to mention, they provide perfect photo opportunities for you parents to capture your child’s signature moves. Did somebody say senior yearbook photo?

2. Mermaid Tails

Mermaids and pirates and photos, oh my! Treat your kid to a fairy-tale adventure with an immersive experience that makes them a part of their favorite stories. With an underwater shoot & swim experience, your little can don their own mermaid tail or shark fin for a guided swimming lesson and magical photo shoot in our outdoor pool. Or book a mermaid and pirate photo shoot to dress the part and enjoy a private photo session on our gorgeous white-sand beaches. Sessions must be booked in advance by emailing aquafuntails@spectrumresorts.com.

3. Kids Tennis Lessons

Your kids will love making a racquet on our eight professional-grade tennis courts. Tennis Pro Joey Carney offers lessons and clinics every day of the week, including classes specifically designed for young players. These sessions provide a fantastic way for kids to burn off some energy, learn a new sport, and develop their coordination and team spirit. All this while enjoying the outdoor sunshine and fresh Gulf air!

4. The Village Arcade & Billiards

Located inside the sprawling Village Hideaway, the Village Arcades & Billiards is a mecca of kid-friendly stimulation with classic arcade and table games, modern gaming consoles, state-of-the-art simulators and more. Try your luck on the claw machine, take a blast to the past with Pac Man, hit up the air hockey table or take a swing on the golf simulator. Spectrum Resort guests even receive a 10% discount for extended game play!

5. The Clubhouse

The Clubhouse is the bustling center of our beachfront resort, and it offers tons of fun for all ages. The kids will love the Clubhouse Arcade (it features fun table games, two Xbox ONEs and classic arcade games) and Sand Island, a sandy outdoor area that includes over-sized chess and checkers sets, a beach volleyball court, and planned activities like dodgeball, water balloon fights, and inflatable slides.
