Solo Surf Destinations for Women

By  |  0 Comments

Soft sand beneath your feet and the warmth of the summer sun on your face are just two reasons why you may be considering flocking away on a beach holiday this year, but why not try something a little different? Whilst the sun and sand can be plenty entertaining on their own, surfing the ocean can add a whole new thrill to your break – a thrill that most surfing enthusiasts can relate to. Once you’ve collected all the gear, wetsuits and surfing essentials choosing your ideal destination can be overwhelming, especially if you’re travelling alone! Here, we are going to look at some of the best solo surf destinations for women to ensure that you enjoy your special time away.

Bali – Sun, Sea And Relaxation

With amazing sandy beaches, crystal blue waters and clear blue skies during most of the year, this is a holiday destination for every surf fan. With a collection of spa and yoga retreats right near the sea too, Bali truly gives you the best of both worlds – not only does it give you the thrill that comes with catching the waves, but you can even end your day by visiting the retreat for some well deserved rest and relaxation. Bali is ideal for solo travellers –  the stresses and pressures of traveling can become quite intense at times, and Bali truly offers all of the female-friendly relaxation options you could need.

Byron Bay – A Surfer’s Paradise

Byron bay in Australia is one of the most well-known destinations for surfers, filled with like-minded people and some of the best surf on the Australian coast. With plenty of blistering sunshine, warm oceans and amazing culture to explore, Australia really is a surfer’s paradise. However, due to its increasing popularity, it is not as quiet as other locations on our list. Don’t write it off completely, however, as although this may be a popular destination for surfers, it has so much more to offer. There is a very big social scene that centres on the surfing culture and with beach side coffee shops and music bars all along the strip, it is no surprise that this destination is not only a favourite with visiting surfers, but with the locals too.

The Mentawai Islands- Remote Yet Beautiful

With a very high chance of catching amazing waves all year round, this remote yet beautiful set of islands off the coast of Indonesia offer some of the best surf that there is. This destination is filled with sandy beaches, allowing you to not only have all the fun of the surf, but plenty of opportunity to rest and relax on the sand. As well as a long stretch of coast for you to surf, there are also stunning and tranquil hidden bays, opening up the opportunity for some solo surf with minimal distraction. You can even take advantage of one of the surf charters that these islands have to offer, which will allow you to surf different parts of the islands with ease for the ultimate adventure.


Santa Cruz- A Place With History

Originally home to the O’Neill brothers who are well known for opening the first ever surf shop, this place is filled with  history and charm. Despite being one of the more popular locations on this list, it also happens to be one of the hardest to navigate. With the locals very protective over their surf, this is something to be mindful of before travelling. If you’re looking to meet and talk to people who have been surfing for generations and learn a little something from the locals, then this is the place for you. Deep in the setting of beautiful California, this is truly the best spot for true American surf filled with history, culture and plenty of amazing waves.
