Travelled as a couple

How did you like the accommodation?

     

The owners, nelly and troy are so welcoming and friendly and the accommodation is beautiful, very nicely decorated and a lush seating area and swimming pool outside. It's only a 10 minute drive to moliets which is a huge beach with lots of restaurants, if you fancy a treat try hotel l'ocean. We traveled the rest of the coast south to Spain and came back to moliets as it was our favourite.


How were the surf lessons?

     

My husband and I had 2 lots of lessons. We have had lessons from other instructors and found troy excellent, his knowledge, patience and safety were second to none and he gave us loads of tips of where to surf that was suited to our level, and more importantly, where not too. Look forward to more lessons next year!

How were the surf lessons?

     

Loved the beaches, but they were very busy in the afternoon & obviously you need to be very aware of the power of the atlantic with smaller children!

The beaches along the Hossegor and Capbreton coast stretch continuously north and south offering a huge choice of surf for everyone. Capbreton has 7 km of beaches starting at the busy side of town and extending south where sand dunes and pine forest merge gently with the incredible beauty of the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. The beaches by the main town are perfect for beginners and intermediate surfing standards

Across the harbour is the famous surf town of Hossegor, where European surfing really took off. The main stretch of beach, Plage Centrale and La Sud, beside the main promenade are great place to learn to surf in Hossegor. For those more experienced there's the opportunity to surf the breaks where the Worlds No.1 surfers duke it out every September in the World Championship Tour, the legendary La Nord and La Graviere.

The beaches reach Seignosse a few km’s north – here Les Bourdaines is perfect for longboarders, and Le Penon is a real quality beach break that’s a bit quieter and just as much fun. Further south is Biarritz with its classic waves and stunning cliffs. And down by St.Jean de Luz is Belharra, one of the worlds most impressive big wave surf spots.
