SOME QUICK QUESTIONS
DO I HAVE TO BOOK THESE TRIPS BEFORE I ARRIVE AT THE SURF CAMP?
No, you don’t have to pre-book any of the trips mentioned on this page. Haudy, our lovely manageress at Swell will be your personal concierge and she will arrange them for you once you are at Swell. Please note that some trips are dependent on sufficient numbers taking part and can be weather-reliant. Most day trips do take place every week at the surf camp.
About Swell :
After living in the Dominican Republic for 8 years and loving the great outdoor watersport lifestyle, Jeroen (from the Netherlands) and Clare (for the UK) decided it was time to share their knowledge of the Dominican Republic all that this stunning country has to offer with visitors from around the world.
Clare and Jeroen were already familiar with surf coaching retreats, resorts and surf camps in many different countries and have had to stay in some very ordinary surf hotel accommodation in their quest for great surfing waves, they knew that there was something missing in the market of surf camps; a place which was still social, but offering better quality accommodation, great food, nicer beds, cleaner rooms: A stylish, luxury surf retreat with surf lessons and surf guiding. They set about designing the kind of place they would want to stay in themselves: a luxury surf camp.
THE WORLD’S FIRST PURPOSE-BUILT LUXURY SURF CAMP!
So they hired a renowned Swiss architect for one purpose: to come up with the world’s first purpose-built, luxury surf coaching retreat/ resort.
Since opening in winter 2009/2010 Swell surf instructors have taught 1000’s of people how to surf in a safe, fun and structured manner. Since opening, Swell has won multiple awards and has 100’s of excellent reviews from happy guests. Swell continues to be one of the top surfing destinations for couples, groups and solo travellers to go to as the #1 luxury surf camp holiday.
It’s not just surfing on offer at Swell; You can learn to kitesurf, take yoga classes, go horse riding on the beach or in the mountains and enjoy some truly spectacular outdoor adventure trips like canyoning for example.
Swell offers package surf holidays that take all the hassle out of the planning, with airport transfers, transport to the beach and much more, so all Swell guests can enjoy a stress-free luxury surf experience. You just have to book your flights, and they will take care of the rest!
With great food being such an important part of anyone’s surf vacation, Swell delivers there too; with superb home-cooked food at the camp and on the evenings when guests go out to dinner, a large choice of restaurants offering a comprehensive choice of dining are all within a few minutes walk.
In 2020 A new Swell Bali Surf retreat was opened. Located in the centre of Bingin, in the southern part of Bali ( where the best surfing waves and white sandy beaches are). It’s a quick 30 minutes from Bali Denpasar International airport.
