The best Surfing destinations

Anywhere with a coastline is fair game when it comes to surf destinations, but there is a bit more to it when it comes to family surf vacations and surf destinations for beginners.

Indonesia is a beautiful surf destination, as long as all members of the trip can surf competently. There is not too much room for beginners on a journey to Indonesia unless you plan a trip around Kuta(Bali) and are happy to surf the somewhat crowded Kuta Beach. Indonesia is still really cheap, and with a bit of research, it can be even more affordable. Staying with locals and eating with locals will save so much money instead of staying in hotels and eating in restaurants. 

One of the best surf vacation destinations is in the Maldives. The water is warm, the waves are, on the whole, very friendly, and there are waves that beginners can learn to surf on. There are destinations in the Maldives that are the ideal surf trip destinations for beginners. 

When To Go

The best time to go to places like Indonesia and the Maldives is during their winter. This is the time when the waves get good, the winds blow offshore, and you have a choice of waves to surf across each archipelago. It is a rule of thumb that any surf destination will be better during their winter. So if you want to go to Hawaii and surf the best of big waves, their winter season is anchored around November to January. Indonesia is best around June to August, their winter season. A quick google search will help with these decisions.
