The World’s Best Alternative Surfing Spots
Surfers are a strange lot really. Willing to travel the world, surfboard in tow, put up with treacherous conditions all for one goal; to ride the perfect wave. And the problem is that the perfect wave could be anywhere, but it’s a guarantee that once a place with a good break has been found it doesn’t stay secret for long. Places like Miami, Indonesia and California can all be overcrowded during the hotter months which can detract from the beauty and idealism of being at one with the ferocity of Mother Nature which surfing gives you. Here are some of the best less crowded surf spots in the world.
Biarritz – Although France’s famous surf beach is incredibly well known and well visited, the water itself is never too crowded. Winning numerous awards for the excellent standard of accommodation and restaurants, Biarritz takes a great deal of pride in its tourism industry and this is reflected in the quality of things on offer to you. The surf schools are good, the hire shops are numerous and the hospitality is second to none. The area can be quite expensive because of its chic nature and the restaurants along the waterfront will charge more than the less touristy areas, so head for these if you’re holidaying on a budget. But with high temperatures and good, consistent waves, Biarritz is a surfer’s paradise and one not to be missed.
Croyde – The small Devon town of Croyde and its other nearby beaches is a great spot for surfers. In stark contrast to Cornwall’s overcrowded Newquay, which on some days can have waves so full of people it’s simply not safe to surf, Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe all have good, regular breaks and are not too crowded in summer. Croyde is better for experienced surfers but okay for beginners, just beware that on windy days the waves can get quite dumpy, where they literally rise up and dump down powerfully on the break, which for an inexperienced surfer can be dangerous. Saunton is perfect for beginners with a long shallow beach providing long easy waves on most days. The town of Croyde itself is nice and you’ll find the usual array of hire shops and surf schools right on the beachfront.
The Philippines – One of the lesser known surf spots but being made up of 7,107 islands makes for a huge amount of coast and, therefore, some great waves. Not as good quality waves as places like Miami or Indonesia, but so uncrowded that you can have a wave to yourself, which is both a thing of rarity and beauty given surfing’s popularity today. Check out San Fernando, Catanduanes, Baler and the Surigao Islands for some good breaks, but beware that surf hire shops can be hard to find so travelling with your own gear is ideal. And don’t forget to take out adequate travel insurance with a reputable provider such as Go Travel before you hit the beach as all water sports can be dangerous.
Staying in the Philippines
With 7,107 islands making up one of the most populated countries in the world, the Philippines are a great place to visit with many attractions on offer. Here are some of the best things to do when visiting.
White Water Rafting – Challenging both mentally and physically, you’ll normally finish a day of rafting exhausted but exhilarated. The Philippines has several places which are good for the sport, such as Cagayan de Oro City in the northern part of Mindanao. Rivalling this, and also in Mindanao, is Davao which has become increasingly popular in recent years and is now one of the most visited for the sport in the whole of the Philippines. You’ll easily find companies which run rafting days, complete with an instructor and sometimes lunch, as well as all the safety briefs and equipment, all for a reasonable price.
