For many of us, when we’re on a surf trip to an island resort or on a boat charter, the idea of owning and operating the resort or skippering the boat is appealing. A simple life of surfing, fishing and swimming in azure tropical waters and watching sunsets under palm trees sounds pretty good. Bilou beach villas is a
Having now travelled to the Maldives North, Central and Southern Atolls multiple times I’m yet to be disappointed. In my view the Maldives is a “bucket list” destination in terms of the overall experience.

From 14 to 21 November, ten very lucky people took part in the first Surf & Balance Retreat at the luxurious, relaxing beachfront Robinson Club in Morocco
