Taking a surf trip for your honeymoon is an experience you and your partner will talk about for a lifetime. Choosing this type of escape lets you combine the thrill of surfing some of the best breaks in the world with luxury accommodation in idyllic settings.
Surf trip resorts cater to all levels of surfers, from novice to advanced, with some offering lessons for beginners. If you and your partner are intermediate or advanced surfers, there are charter boat trips to uncrowded breaks with local guides and surf instructors.
Here are a few of the best honeymoon surf trip resorts with the lot: great surf at the door, five-star accommodation, spa treatments, privacy, and those must-have romantic walks along palm fringed beaches.
Byron Bay is one of Australia’s top surfing destinations due to its warm weather, and laid-back lifestyle. Its position at Australia’s most easterly coastal point makes it open to the winter swells that create great waves all year round.
There’s always a buzz in Byron, but the secluded Villas of Byron, provide a honeymoon escape to a private and luxurious honeymooners’ sanctuary. You can still walk or drive easily from here to the most popular local surf breaks including The Pass, Tallows Beach, Wategos, Broken Head and Lennox Head.
There are only five Asian-style villas, each with its own heated pool and spa, outdoor rain shower, spacious living area and gourmet kitchen. Eating out is as easy as strolling into Byron Bay village to choose from one of many eateries.
With its year round warm weather, unspoilt islands, pristine lagoons teeming with tropical fish and over-the-water luxurious resorts, Tahiti is a honeymooner’s paradise.
The Royal Huahine Resort delivers all this plus access to some of French Polynesia’s best surfing spots renowned for their consistent and perfectly shaped waves suited intermediate and advanced surfers.
The resort’s bungalows are situated on the calm lagoon and each features a swimming platform and a private Jacuzzi from which to take in the endless water views and spectacular sunsets.
In between surfs, take a dip in the resort pool or dive, snorkel or kayak on the lagoon.
How about the ultimate remote island honeymoon experience?
With an adults-only policy, 32-guest limit, personalised service and contemporary Asian-inspired private fales (bungalows), it’s not surprising the Royal Davui Island Resort was voted ‘Most Romantic Island Hideaway in the South Pacific, Caribbean and Atlantic’ by Conde Nast Traveller.
For honeymooners who want to hang ten, Royal Davui is perfectly positioned a short boat ride to remote surf spots, including the world famous left break, Frigates. While Frigates is for the more experienced surfer, a boat and guide can be chartered to take you to the many smaller Viti Levu breaks about 30 minutes away.
And when you’re not out cutting loose on the waves, relax in your fale’s private plunge pool set above the beach amidst lush tropical gardens and enjoy the sweeping water views over the Beqa lagoon.
With waves that enable easy take-offs and offer long rides and modern luxurious resorts, the Maldives is a popular destination for honeymooners and surfers of all levels.
The five-star Island Spa at Four Seasons Kuda Huraa is a perfect destination for couples learning to surf or wanting to perfect their technique as the resort has a professionally run surf school, Tropicsurf of Noosa.
Beginners are taught in the calm waters of the lagoon and proficient surfers are taken out to the breaks with local guides who know all the best spots. The resort also offers seaplane ‘surfaris’, trips to secret outer breaks, stand-up paddle lessons, and even a seven-day ‘surfari’ aboard the Four Seasons Explorer cruiser.
Outside of all that, you can chill out in private in your over-the-water bungalow, indulge in world-class spa treatments, take a dip in the sublime resort pools, take a shark snorkel safari or a dolphin cruise.
