Overview

The eco surf camp with its unique combination of peace, surfing and inspiring people from all over the world is the perfect place for your holiday dreams. Surrounded by greenery and yet close to the shops, bars, restaurants and beaches of Suances.
If you are looking for an extraordinary surf camp, then you are right here: intensive lessons in surfing and a variety of activities in nature, on the beach and in the camp.
A relaxing holiday is the best opportunity to discover and learn or deepen surfing. With us in a unique environment and on beaches with constant conditions.

Young and old can experience unforgettable surfing experiences together on the beach and rest in the quietest place of Suances. Children and teenagers can romp between trees and animals and discover many hidden corners and toys. We offer a family discount, for children we have discounted prices and children under 3 years are included free of charge.

Atmosphere and gastronomy
Suances is a fishing village that comes to life especially in summer – known for its cultural events and a multifaceted nightlife, as well as for the traditional cuisine, which you can also enjoy here at reasonable prices.

Beaches and surf spots
Get to know our six beaches of fine sand and discover a variety of coves and cliffs in their surroundings. Here you can enjoy the unique landscape of Cantabria: green hills and mountains on a wild coast. The three beaches of Suances, which owns the peninsula of Los Locos, create the so-called «island effect»: this ensures that a spot with the individually suitable combination of wave size, wind and tides can be found daily. The beach of Los Locos was declared the third surfing reserve in Europe in 2012 due to its perfect conditions for surfers of all levels.

Central location
Located in the heart of Cantabria, from Suances, besides beaches and mountains, many cultural centers and natural highlights are also within easy reach: Santillana del Mar and the caves of Altamira (5 minutes), Santander and Comillas (20 minutes) or even the Picos de Europa and Bilbao (1 hour 15 minutes each).

Accommodation

The bio surf camp is quietly located on the edge of the village of Suances in the countryside. Although only 300 meters from the village, there is no noise, virtually no traffic and few neighbors. The camp itself is car-free. However, you can park directly in front of the gate at any time. The market square of Suances with shops, bars, restaurants and bank with ATM is a 5-minute walk away.

The beaches are between 1500 (La Concha) and 2000 and 2500 meters (Los Locos/ La Tablia) from the camp. On the beach of La Concha you can, for example, by car or public bus in 5 minutes, by bike (available in the camp) in 10 minutes and on foot via a path through the old town in 20 minutes.

In the camp there is a small Zen garden and it is located in a 2000sqm organic garden with many trees and lovingly designed niches. The entire area is at our guests’ disposal. There are four wooden huts, a large sleeping tent and several smaller tents with single and double beds.

In the camp we have common areas such as the kitchen, the canteen and the barbecue area, a sauna, a pond and a terrace. In addition, baths with shower and another beautiful outdoor shower for cooling off after the sauna or refreshment after a surf session – overlooking the sunset.

Free of charge are mountain bikes, training equipment such as slack-line, longboard and indoboard as well as surf videos and books at your disposal.

In addition, we have a communal kitchen, a yurt furnished as a cozy living room and covered dining tables, a sauna, separate toilets and washrooms, warm showers in the washrooms and also outdoors, a fixed barbecue, an “Indoor Surf Area” and a surf library.

And last but not least, suitable surfing material for all skill levels and equally qualified and experienced and friendly teachers ensure the best conditions for your fun in the waves.
