Longing for sun, surf, sand, salty air and great memories? You’ve come to the right place. Whatever your level, there’s a surf holiday here for you, including accommodation, equipment and top-quality tuition.
Surf in France
Head to Biarritz, Europe’s oldest surfing destination and ride the waves while staying in a quirky, eco-friendly lodge. A six-night holiday includes six organic breakfasts, accommodation in a shared room, 10 hours of tuition and theory lessons.
Stay eight days in a self-catering apartment in Corralejo. Or, enjoy the same sleepy town and great beaches while staying in a hostel, where continental breakfast and picnic lunches are included.
Tenerife is another popular place to surf and a holiday there includes seven nights in a typical Canarian house with a big swimming pool, with a bonus of yoga within the week.
Surf in Portugal
Budding surfers will love the location just 10 minutes from beaches and nightlife in Ericeira. There’s also SUP included, weekly BBQs, and daily brekkies to keep you going.
Peniche offers a four-day course, as well as two eight-day packages, based in a friendly shared house. This surf school holds an exclusive permit to teach on Cantinho da Baia beach, making it a great place for beginners to find their fins.
Surf in Morocco
Stay amid the bustling souks of Essaouira on a seven-day surf break on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. Stay in a boutique riad where breakfast is included along with a group evening meal. Shorter weekend or midweek breaks are also available.
Taghazout (20 km from Agadir) also offers great year-round surf. Guests stay seven nights in a fantastic villa and enjoy morning lessons and supervised afternoon sessions. Breakfast is provided, along with lunch on lesson days and seven delicious group evening meals.
If you’re looking for even more from your holiday, the laid-back surfing towns of Cadiz and San Sebastian in Spain offer a chance to combine surfing lessons with paddle-boarding, yoga or language lessons. There are also similar combination holidays in France, Morocco and Portugal.
