Getting to the Surf

Swell provides twice daily surf transport to the most consistent surf beach in the Caribbean. It’s a 10 minute drive and we are pretty much always the first ones at the beach in the mornings. We leave at 6.45am to get the best conditions: glassy waves, offshore winds and uncrowded breaks.

  • Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There’s plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish — more boutique hotel than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelettes, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls). Structured lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer tips between rides.”
