Surfing

Whether you wish to surf or body board, whether you’re a pro or want to try surfing for the first time, we recommend several fabulous destinations…

Whichever you choose, our instructors will make sure that you have a fantastic time and learn the skills you need.

Morocco is ideal for a surfing holiday. Head to Agadir or Essaouira. Alternatively, try Costa Vicentina on Portugal’s west coast. If you’re with kids and looking for surfing fun, we would suggest the Algarve.

We love the boutique resort of Paradis Plage, located half an hour north of Agadir, on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. It’s just over 3 hours flying time from London and the weather is good all year round, though it does get pretty hot in July and August. Excellent on-site surf school with Rip Curl suits and Surftech boards. Lessons available to everyone over the age of 8. Also in Morocco, further north up the coast, we highly recommend the surfing in Essaouira and the cool little riads to stay in.

Sri Lanka’s south coast draws surfers in from far and wide. Head to Talalla Retreat for great surfing (and yoga).

Or in South Africa you can choose from any number of places to stay, from beach bungalows, luxury private villas, sleek apartments or 5 star spa hotels. Choose from Cape Town or Plettenberg Bay.

There’s also great surfing in Bali. The perfect change from glorious days relaxing in one of our recommended luxurious spa resorts? Or, in the Maldives, you can adopt an entire ocean lifestyle at the Four Seasons Kuda Haraa surf school, run by professionals from Tropicsurf of Noosa, Australia.

We can tailor make the perfect long or short haul break for you that focuses on surfing or combines surfing with a selection of other activities and adventures.
