A Swell surf Experience

A surf camp in paradise

Swell offers a Luxury Surf Camp experience on the North coast of the Domincian Republic.

We cater for people who have never surfed before or are intermediate surfers that need surf lessons or coaching.
Besides the surfing, there’s Yoga on offer at Swell 3 x per week.

When we started Swell in 2009 we didn’t convert an old  villa into a surf camp , we went to award winning architects to design a purpose built luxury surf camp / surf retreat.  At the heart of our surf retreat is a large open communal area where we have meals together, socialise and give theory surf lessons.

Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend


Swell is like a warm embrace; you’ll immediately feel at home. It has a uniquely relaxed vibe and by the very nature of their choice to come to Swell, our guests are naturally compatible: This is key to the welcoming and friendly spirit of our surf retreat.

Breakfasts and dinners are shared together around our huge dining table. Guests can chill out on our sofas or over-sized bean bags, shoot some pool, play some cards or watch some movies. You’ll feel like you are part of a really fun, extended family.

If you want some ‘me time,’ go and relax in one of our hammocks slung beneath the palm trees in our tropical garden.

yoga & Surfing

Accessible for all levels

Surfing and Yoga are a match made in heaven and it`s no accident that the two pair-up so well. 

Pre-surf stretching has been a vital part of surfing since forever: You’ll never see a surfer enter the water without doing some stretching first. Using limbs in a way that is alien to most other daily activities or sports can take its toll, even on bodies whose owners consider themselves to be quite fit ordinarily.
