We, three absolute surf beginners, are absolutely satisfied. We started centrally at the beach shopping center and drove to the coast with the van. We were asked via WhatsApp if we could go an hour earlier, as the waves were best there. On site we got a little theory lesson with dry runs. The surf instructors were all very friendly and patient. As a small snack there was a liter of water and a banana. Thank you for everything!

The staff were super friendly and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. The diving was very exciting. We even had the opportunity to borrow a Go Pro (for €25 with 8GB) to record our trip. We took this chance and got great results. They even gave us a free ride to our hotel which was close to the beach where we were diving. I can warmly recommend. :)

Very nice instructor we were out with. She was only an instructor for the two of us, so it was almost private lessons, absolutely perfect. Definitely worth a visit!

Great first time snorkelling was really enjoyable and the instructor Erin made it really easy and put us at ease

The girls there are really nice and helpful. Snorkeling is really awesome
