Probably the best experience I’ve had – JUST BOOK IT DONT HESITATE
I’m a 27 y/o from London and came on my own arriving on New Years Eve for 10 nights. Words really can’t do this place justice. It was probably the best decision I’ve made in years to come here. The facilities are fantastic, all the staff are great and the food is superb.

If your a beginner, intermediate or advanced, this is a great place for you to come.

Although arriving on my own, I left with a group of friends who I’ll know for a long time.

There was a review I read saying ‘ don’t hesitate, just book it’ and I can’t agree more. It took me 20 hours to get there (last minute flight) and 30 hours back ( weather issues in New York) and it was still worth it all.

Make sure you bring some things from home to leave there as it will feel like the right thing to do when you leave.

Extra thanks to Scott and Lee/ Gee/Nee /Meemo as they’re the glue holding it all together. Stay safe and enjoy it!

  • 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 hotel 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. Highly recommended!
