If you ever wanted to pick up surfing, or you are a regular and know all about the right swirls, keep on reading. This article is going to tell you all about the best and coolest surf camps in Europe.

Surfana, Bloemendaal

The Netherlands may not have the biggest waves of all the previous surf camps in Europe, but Surfana surfcamp is a must visit for the youth, families and couples. They recently built these cute “Sheddies” which are wooden cabins – perfect for couples or 2 friends. The beach is located right next to the camp and during July & August you can enjoy live music. If you are a family or couple, you have a seperate camp area, so you can relax. The camp is open until the end of September and usually ends with their famous festival. Check Surfana for more info.

Surfana Bloemendaal - best surfcamps in Europe


This Dutch-founded surf company has been around for a while and is your get-go for surf camps in Europe. They host European surf camps in France and Spain for adults, families, teenagers, and even instructors. We experienced a Family & Surf Camp in the Netherlands during the pandemic – something they normally don’t offer. However, we got to experience their cool family concept, and we really enjoyed it! Surf lessons during the day, games, music and food, or exploring the area. Check them out.

Zarautz Surfing Village

This surf camp in Europe is perfect for the age groups 18 – 35 years old. We headed to a small village in the Northern part of Spain named Zarautz. They offer safari tents, but also more basic options. There is a bar, hammocks, but best of all, one of the best surfing spots in the region!

Board ‘n Breakfast

If luxury isn’t your most important pilar, but you love a warm, smaller accommodation in a beautiful setting, check out Board ‘n Breakfast. Back in 2018, we experienced a 4-day surf camp in Côte Basque which is considered to be the Surf Mecca of France and Europe! We enjoyed a comfortable room, yoga, a swimming pool and a laidback vibe. This family owned property has a few accommodation options; a room, private rooms, shared, campervan, or you can rent the entire surf house.
