Hi surfers. If you are looking for places to surf, here are great places to ride waves, relax and eat drink and party after a day on the water around the globe.
A decade ago, Canggu used to be a black-sand beach with one food shack, rice paddies and a fantastic reef break for intermediate and pro surfers to take their skill to the next level. Not much has changed although it is now a little more crowded in peak season and there’s now a vibrant cafe scene and some hip places to stay. The wave is unchanged. so as the laid-back, wellness-crowd vibe with none of the brashness of Kuta or swankiness of Seminyak. There are many new restaurants such as The Shady Shack which is a great new spot for juices, low-alcohol coolers and tasty vegan food; Canteen Café, where vintage surf and skateboards adorn the walls, serves excellent coffee and brunch and the Chillhouse which offers surf lessons from €49, including board hire and a ratio of one coach to two guests.
If you have got enough of Newquay and the loud, beating heart of the UK surf scene, Sennen Cove offers a more peaceful and reflective soul. It is as far as Land’s End and takes extra hours to travel, it’s orth every minute. The waves are challenging but somewhat consistent, with a beach break that works left and right and will suit most abilities. Besides, it is far less crowded than many Cornish surf spots. The location is wild and unspoiled with clear ocean, rolling grassy hills and craggy cliffs. There are numerous services offered such as The Sennen Surfing Centre offers lessons from £30, and board and wetsuit can be hired on the beach from £14; Yurt accommodation costs £19/ night at Whitesands Lodge just inland from the beach. For food, Ben Tunnicliffe’s Sennen Cove family-friendly restaurant is a must-go destination for fresh, unfussy seasonal cooking, or a guest ale with a view of the waves at its wooden outdoor bar, the Surf Den.
