With everyone aware of the stunning views, sandy beaches and first-rate family entertainment, it should maybe come as no surprise to hear Athletes have taken to it as well. Visitors can now expect to rub shoulders on the beaches with promising British 2012 athletes and Tour De France contender Bradley Wiggins.
They have been drawn to its reliably pleasant climate, excellent gyms and sports facilities, and unbeatable range of landscapes all just as available to its many returning and new visitors.
Sporting Heroes lend their Approval
In the past it has attracted sporting heroes such as triathlon world champion Alistair Brownlee and some of the Premiership’s finest football players.
