If it is good vibes, having fun in the sun, being outdoors and enjoying fine cuisine appeal, grab a flight and come join the team at Sanctuary Surf. Don’t forget to save room for cheese and wine and get ready for a the surf day ahead!
WHICH PACKAGE FOR ME?
Retreat Packages (All-Inclusive) are perfect if you have little or no experience surfing or with a Stand-Up Paddle Board but are keen to give it a go! This package will include fully-catered glamping as well as transfers meaning you can avoid renting a car.
Sleep + Eat packages are great if you know the score with getting to the surf and making the most of it and if you want to enjoy the unique glamping accommodation with breakfast & dinner.
