Family Friendly Surfing Destinations To Consider

September 16, 2016

When you are young, a surfing vacation is quite simple to organize. You do not have to worry about much except how much money you save and where you can get the best waves. One of the most important things that you should consider when planning your holiday is where you want to spend your surfing vacation, in which circumstances and with what weather. Posing these questions, and answering them alone or with whoever you plan to accompany you can help you in the process of choosing the best surf destinations in a climate and place that suits you and your needs. To have a memorable holiday, you will have to look into places that align with your expectations, and that provide a lot of additional surfing opportunities that you can try out. You think about surf lifestyle clothes, shoes, and accessories and you just want to have a lot of fun. After you get married and you have children, surfing trips tend to disappear. Well, it does not have to be like that. You can always enjoy surfing as a family activity. Just make sure that you plan everything with the entire family in mind. In order to get you started, here are some wonderful family friendly surfing destinations you are bound to love:


If you love Mad Dogs, you might not want to visit Belize, but in reality this is a great place to visit if you love the outdoors and you want to do some surfing with your entire family. The common belief is that you cannot surf here, but there are different beaches that can be visited if you want to enjoy this activity. Also, Belize offers truly impressive scuba diving and the barrier reefs here are particularly superb. The great thing about it is that the official language in Belize is English. You can so easily find different accommodation types for all possible budgets and the entire family will have something to do.

Punta Mita, Mexico

The waves are perfect for beginners, traveling is really easy, and the water is quite warm. If you are looking for wonderful surfing spots, we recommend the Puerto Vallarta coastline, especially in the north. The beginner breaks are definitely perfect and waves will be long, breaking and rolling in two directions. Many surfers can catch the same wave. Beginners can also enjoy Sayulita, a destination that is perfect for family thanks to extra activities available like zip lining, ATV tours, and horseback riding.

Playa Negra, Costa Rica

Playa Negra offers so many beautiful beachfront vacation homes that will give you really quick surf access and a lot of space to enjoy this sport. In the event that your family wants to rent a beach house and most of the time will be spent relaxing, Playa Negra has to be considered. It is located half an hour away from Tamarindo and the sunsets are simply incredible. You should wake up early, as the beach has a very interesting appeal right after sunrise and you can also consider different other surfing spots that are close-by like Playa Avellanas.

Siargao Island, Philippines

The Philippines is definitely a great place to go to with your entire family, no matter what you may want to enjoy on a vacation. Surfing is available in various places, but Siargao Island has to be considered as the top spot to go to with your family. Since tourism in the region is down, the prices are low so you can afford much more than what you initially imagined. Beginners can easily practice and kids can learn.
