Quaint Destinations for Beginning Surfers

Jump to last reply

Hello! My husband and I are wanting to complete one of our bucket list items... learn to surf! We are 25 and 27 years old... so we still have some time, but we'd like to do this before we start a family. I need help in settling on the destination that is best for us. We aren't big shoppers, gamblers, and are not into the touristy stuff. We want to go some where to slow down and be in nature...enjoy the ocean, take life slow, soul search, and dream about our future together.

We know a LITTLE spanish, so we kinda like the idea of going to a spanish-speaking area. Meeting locals and getting tips from them are one of our favorite things to do wherever we go. Our favorite things include authentic local food, snorkeling, paddle boarding, canoeing, running, hiking, biking....If there was a way to fish and cook it up that'd be fun too. We like history and a good story, so a place rich in culture and art would be a cherry on top.

We would prefer to stay in a little hut or studio beach house. The closer to the beach the better! Our dream accommodations would be on the beach and have a private outdoor shower. We don't really need a TV, but wifi would be kinda nice. I am not sure what realistic expectations are for budgeting, but we definitely would be interested budget friendly locations.

Anyone have any favorite recommendations and tips of destinations, surf instructors, and/or accommodations for this sort of trip?
