All hail adventurous women! No longer are ‘girls’ holidays’ filled with visions of pampering and taking it easy – the world is a playground for female adventure seekers, stoke hunters and action sports lovers.

One active holiday ticking all the boxes is a surf trip. Whether you want beginner lessons or one-on-one guiding, small fun waves or something punchier, there are global surf retreats, villas, camps and destinations for all.
The focus is on health and wellness through wave chasing, yoga, nutritional food, challenging yourself in the water, and having a good laugh with like-minded souls. Plus, once you make the leap and get it booked, the surf instructors, equipment, healthy meals, hospitality and activities will be waiting for you on arrival, so you can focus on getting pumped for the trip ahead! Whether travelling as a couple, with friends, on your own or looking for a women-only holiday, there are plenty of options out there; from the cultural shores of Morocco and surf-rich Portugal, to California’a scenic coastline and tropical Costa Rica. So, if your current travel plans involve scrolling through Instagram looking at other people’s trips, beach pics and #youonlyliveonce posts, it’s time to shake things up and book a surf trip.

Plot your great getaway away now for a summer of adventure and travel.
