When do we surf?

Surfing at Swell always takes place in the mornings. The first surf session (the lesson) leaves at 7 am and you will return to Swell around 9.30 am for breakfast. After breakfast, we return to the beach for a supervised practice session. You return to Swell again usually around 12.30 to 13:00 and have the afternoon to yourself to relax, or take part in any of the other activities on our day trips page. You can take yourself back to the beach at your own expense in the afternoon and still use our surfboards, but remember, surfing is exhausting and we strongly recommend that you don’t do this. Even if you can manage a 3rd session on Day 1, by Day 3 you won’t be able to surf at all because your arms will no longer be working!

  • Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There’s plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other surf camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish — more boutique surf retreat than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelets, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls). Structured surf lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head surf coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer learn to surf tips between riding waves. If you are serious about learning to surf, then Swell should be on top of your destination list. Highly recommended!

    Designed with the discerning surfer in mind, Swell is far from a crash pad. The spare clean lines, plush bedding, modern photographs and funky furniture say ‘boutique surf retreat’ but the pool, ping-pong and foosball tables and social vibe suggest otherwise. A huge wood communal table is the center of the hanging-out action, after all the surfing is done. Highly recommended!
