Do you want to surf away from the crowds this summer?
Enjoying your summer holidays in the bustling beach towns of Cornwall or the Southwest of France can be a lot of fun. Having said that, you may prefer getting away from the raucous bars and crowded line-ups of Europe’s most sought after surf destinations for a week or two… Someplace where the ambiance is more laid back and there are a whole lot less surfers in the water.
Here are our top-5 favourite places for European surfers to surf away from the crowds this summer:
Robinson Club Agadir – Morocco
The Perfect Wave runs the surf centre from the Robinson Club so you will be very well looked after by our team. If you want a good dose of hot North African summer sun, mixed with surf lessons in family friendly waves, camel rides on the beach, hikes in the Atlas mountains, and a few rounds of golf, you’ll find everything you need at this all-inclusive club.
Keeping in the African desert theme, but with a Spanish island twist is the Atlantis Bahia Real – Canary Islands. This luxury hotel borders the beautiful Corralejo Natural Dune Park on Fuerteventura, with splendid views of the neighbouring islands of Lobos and Lanzarote.
While I’m on the subject of family friendly 5-star destinations, the Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel in Portugal on the stunning western coast of the Algarve offers a wide range of accommodations from a boutique hotel to luxury villas and vacation houses. The location is idyllic, nestled between the Atlantic and the Costa Vicentina National Park with a view of the quaint fishing village of Sagres.
If you enjoy the fantastic fish and lovely wine Portugal is famous for, while looking for something comfortable, affordable and well off being off the beaten path, let me suggest getting lost in the middle of the Atlantic: Hotel da Vila on Madeira Island. Although the island is best known for big wave surfing, there are a few spots suitable for beginners and intermediates, as well as long list of other outdoor activities.
Finally, for something completely different, why not go hunting for a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow on the lovely shores of Ireland? If you’re looking for a fun trip, truly centred on surfing, no matter your skill level the crew at the Bundoran Surf Co in Ireland are ready to cater to your every need.
