Surfing in Canary Islands

back to Europe

Surf  the Canary Islands and sleep in great surf accommodations

The Canary Islands provide ideal surf conditions all year round on the four biggest islands: Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife. With the wide range of beach- and reef breaks, beginners as well as advanced surfers will get their money worth. Based on the large number of surf spots, the Canary Islands are often qualified as the Hawaii of Europe. A variety of surf accommodations such as surfcamps, surf hotels and surf hostels bring in many surf tourists coming just for the surf. The Canary Islands also host many surf schools, bringing beginners on the board. A constantly good wave quality, the turquoise warm water and the mild climate with lots of sun throughout the whole year, provide an unforgettable surf experience.

Surf Spots and surf camps are located on all of the Canary Islands, particularly in the northern parts. Currently, we host several surf camps on Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Most surf camps are located at the North coast of Fuerteventura close to Corralejo.

Prices for surf accommodations range from 20 € to 60 € per night. Usually, flights to the Islands are the most expensive part of a surf trip. To get you the most out of your travel budget, many surfcamps offer packages including accommodation, surf classes and surf board rental.
