Are you a hardcore surfer? Do you fancy pushing your skills to the limit? Well, then you just have to take a trip to Hawaii. Not only does it offer some of the best beaches in the world, but it also offers the famous Pipeline in Oahu. It’s one of the heaviest waves in the world, and only those who are truly confident will be able to complete it – but it’s worth a try.
If you’re up to date on your geography, you’ll know that Indonesia is home to thousands of islands and some of the most pristine waters in the world. While most tourists like to have a leisurely swim in the waters, surfers have the chance to check out the swell on some of the most surfer-friendly islands. Bali is the leader when it comes to waves, and comes complete with natural coral reefs that create more than enough swell for surfers to enjoy.
Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, so we’d highly recommend adding this place to your bucket list anyway. However, it’ll be even better if you want to take your board with you. That’s because Costa Rica offers expert waves who want to check out the Salsa Brava reef break, but it also offers laid-back beginner vibes in places like Jaco and Santa Teresa.
Whether you’re an expert or complete beginner, Portugal has waves for everyone. With some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, this country also comes complete with warm sea temperatures and reliable conditions. While there are many who come here to ride the baby waves, it’s fair to say that surfers also make their way to Portugal for the gargantuan swells in the likes of Nazaré, Peniche, and Ericeira.
We think it’s time to grab your board and go surfing!
