New York, NY
USA

We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Seven Spots for Spring Break Surfing

Henley Vazquez

 

Spring Break and relaxing on the beach go hand-in-hand, but if you're looking for something a little more adventurous, check out our favorite surf destinations and hang ten with your whole crew.


Nosara, Costa Rica
Harmony Hotel

Why go?

Everybody, and we mean everybody, is headed to Nosara these days, and it's quickly winning the Tulum crowd away from the Riviera Maya. It boasts breaks that suit all levels, and the hip Harmony Hotel won't break the bank.

How to get there? 

Fly to Costa Rica's Liberia airport, rent a 4x4 and head south for approximately 2 1/2 hours (have your GPS ready).


Sayulita, Mexico
Imanta Resort

Why go?

Sayulita has the surf school and hippy soul that's made it a favorite for years. Design-lovers should stay tucked away in Imanta, an Aman-esque retreat, hidden within the jungles nearby.

How to get there?

Fly into Puerto Vallarta airport and the resort is around an hour's drive away. 


Rincon, Puerto Rico
The Beach House

Why go?

Rincon may not be totally undiscovered, but it still feels free of crowds and has a laid-back surfer vibe that many regulars want to keep secret from the masses.

How to get there?

Take a non-stop flight from NYC to Aguadilla on jetBlue, and Rincon is just 30 minutes from there.


St. Barth's
Eden Rock

Why go?

Why not?! St. Barth's wins on every front and although it may not be an obvious surf destination, if your family wants to split time between drinking rosé on the sand and more adventurous surfing beaches, you've got both here. Head to Toiny Beach, which has more challenging waters, if you're an experience surfer, or try Lorient for newbies.

How to get there?

Fly via San Juan or St. Martin. The San Juan connection is a little longer, but you'll also have access to the awesome Tradewind Aviation charters.


Santa Monica, California
Fairmont Miramar

Why go?

Santa Monica combines the city style and culture time of LA with beach and surf activities along the coast. The Miramar recently renovated its bungalow suites, which are perfect for families.

How to get there?

Flights are almost always reasonable and easy to find to LAX.


Kamala Beach, Thailand
Andara Resort and Villas

Why go?

Phuket's Kamala Beach is a popular surf spot and close to other Thai islands with more daring activities including elephant riding. Andara has a private beach club, and their villas are seriously design magazine-worthy. Your Instagram followers will thank you.

How to get there?

Phuket has lots of international connections. If traveling from the US, the easiest thing to do is fly to Hong Kong and spend a few days there or fly right into Bangkok and pick up a domestic flight.

Thaa Atoll, Maldives
Maalifushi by COMO

Why go?

This surfing Nirvana is located on a chain of previously uninhabited islands with overwater villas and beach suites. It's a place you go to when you want to surf in peace and access secret breaks in exclusive destinations. We love the COMO's chic vibe and and focus on well-being.

How to get there?

From the States, you can fly through Dubai or Doha to Male International Airport. From there, it's a 30 minute charter to the private isle escape.
