  • Want to improve your surf skills? We can help by filming your session and analysing the areas where you can improve

Coasteering fun in the sun! A short drive from our accommodation are some incredible spots to try out coasteering. A thrilling activity invented in Wales and rapidly growing abroad.

Why We Love This...

It’s a perfect place for watersports with rugged coastlines, Atlantic swells, clear blue seas and sunny days – loads of them! There’s also great seafood and a real surf community vibe that’s friendly and welcoming.”
