Surf trips are just about our favourite thing to do as a family. It’s why we absolutely knew we had to move back to Cornwall and start up a brand ‘The Cornish Surfer. Before we did so, we were lucky enough to travel around the world experiencing the best surf our planet has to offer. Over the years we have found some amazing places to visit and where you can stay, which we would love to share with you…
No 1 – The Maldives – Hudarinfushi is by far the best spot surfed. Although the dynamics of the island has changed a little since we visted you can now only surf Lohi’s if you are a resident of the hotel and the boat trips to other surf spots have become quite expensive. Allot of our friends now opt to do the boat trip, which takes you to all of the best surf spots at un-crowed times. Medium to advanced surfers.
No 2: – Morocco – Taghazute. This is a great place for surfing and super cheap. The flights are very reasonably priced and there are many options for either luxing it up in some of the 5 star hotels or Air b&b has become very popular in this small town. All levels of surfers. My fav was Banana beach but my husband surfer Anchor Point allot.
We recommend staying at Sol House or the Hyatt Place Hotel, Taghazout Bay, both are family friendly hotels.
No 3 -Mauritus – Le Morne
If like us, you turn to any watersport activity, Mauritius is amazing for surfing and windsurfing off the same beach. Check out Le Morne. You can hire windsurf kit right on the beach.
We stayed just up the coast in Bel Ombre at an all-inclusive 5 star resort ‘Herritage Awali’. Beautifully furnished. This hotel sits next door to the Herritage Le telfair which is one of the small leading hotels of the world. The C Beach club is worth a visit for an after surf lunch or an early evening cocktail.
