Sweet dreams come from sleeping well. In Dreamsea, they think a good rest is an important part of having a great surf camp experience. They provide the participants with comfortable, fancy tents, and high quality mattresses.

Glamping private tents

Because there is no reason to sacrifice comfort and luxury if you want to enjoy the great experience of outdoor holidays in harmony and contact with nature.

Glamping is a new and growing trend from the last decade, a fusion of glamour and camping. It is a perfect concept for those who love the positive points of camping and outdoors lifestyles but forgetting all those negatives aspects and enjoying a complete comfort.

They invite you to try this new concept of camping in the double bed glamorous tents. Furnished and decorated with a cozy and pleasant taste, out of recycled materials and equipped with a very comfortable mattress.

  • Available only from Saturday to Saturday, Saturday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Saturday.
  • Cozy and comfortable furnished tents with bedding and shower towel, lighting and power
  • A unique and exclusive design integrated with nature
  • Perfect for couples: a romantic and private retreat
  • A fancy eco-friendy space
  • Includes a nice welcome present: bottle of wine

Normal shared tents

If you are traveling with a group of friends or alone and you are looking to have an amazing time, get to know new people from all over the world, and you don’t want to spend that much on a glamping tent, they offer you a more economic option.

These tents have 3 or 4 individual beds and are shared. Also bookable privately with an extra cost. Choosing this option doesn’t mean losing comfort. These tents are made for eight people, so having enough room won’t be a problem.

In case you would like to share a tent with your friends you are traveling with, you should book it together or write down the name of your friends in the comment area during the booking process.

  • Available only from Saturday to Saturday
  • Cozy and comfortable shared tents with 3 or 4 individual beds, lighting and power
  • Perfect choice for groups or solo travelers
  • Be part of the surf camp life and don't miss anything
  • Bedding included, travel lighter

Program

Surf lessons

Learn and improve your surfing skills with the best professionals at Dreamsea Surf Camp.

Joining the surf camp you will receive 10 hours of lessons per week or 15 hours if you book the intensive lessons course. All with the best qualified and experienced instructors you can imagine, all the instructors will teach you not just how to surf, but how to enjoy the ride, and most important of all, how to enjoy the learning process, in a lifetime experience.

In Dreamsea Surf Camp you will be safe and comfortable all the time in the water because they provide one instructor and one assistant per eight students. The instructors will be in the water helping you out, so you will take advantage of the personal attendance the instructors will give you. Your instructor will be the same all the week long, meaning a better communication flow.

The surf camp instructors are one of the keys that make Dreamsea different from the rest. All the instructors have the surf instructor licence, and the surf instructors are no mercenaries, as they love the surf, and more importantly, they love teaching surf, so they will make a top effort to make you enjoy and love the surf as they do, while being safe. Dreamsea guarantees you, you are gonna love your surf instructor, the surfing experience, the Dreamsea Surf Camp team and every second you will be with them.

Each surf lesson lasts 90 minutes, normally one to two lessons per day, this makes Dreamsea Surf Camp the best option if you are really interested in learning how to surf. Of course in the surf camp they have the best equipment that you can use, even after the surfing lessons, all for free.

The surfing program is divided in three levels:

Dreamsea wants you to enjoy and take advantage of the learning process, to improve and to rip the waves. That's why they have divided the surfing program in three different levels. Please, be honest and realistic with your level when you are up to choose a program. Read carefully the prerequisites of the available levels and get the one that better matches your surf skills.

  • Do note that the package only includes lessons for Levels 0-1

Level 0: The basics

Get the feeling of riding small rolling and breaking waves on easy to follow steps. You will be losing your balance and falling off, enjoy the benefits of drinking salty water and stand up again. Dreamsea guarantees you will stand-up having fun and a lot of laughs.

Prerequisite: None, suitable for first-time surfers or those who surf a few times before and wish to get the right technique from the beginning in order to progress faster.

Level 1: The patterns

Leaving the nest: Get excited, challenge yourself, understand the waves and how it works, timing and take off, and perform front and back side turns.

Prerequisite: Comfortable with the basics of surfing. Able to catch, balance and stand regularly and comfortably on broken waves without assistance. Able to catch the occasional green small waves if the conditions let you do it.

Level 2: The stylish

You want to be independent! Join the line-up and surf other waves. It takes courage, it’s exhausting and exhilarating at the same time. An adrenaline shot.

Prerequisite: Good board control and balancing skills, can perform front and back side turns, timing and take off not consistent, good fitness, and swimming skills.

Admission requirements

The participant's minimum age is 16 years travelling alone with parental consent until 18 years old.

In Dreamsea Surf Camp Tocha, they offer you the opportunity to live the real surfing experience, having the chance of surfing uncrowded waves in a long amazing savage beach, and all of this staying in one of the exclusive fully equipped tepee tent.

Things to do (optional)

You are also welcome to bring your own stuff if you prefer. Again, the instructors will be at your disposal for any advice or recommendation about surfing.

When you want to have some break from the sea, Dreamsea Surf Camp Spain also offers the following great activities to make your surf camp much more fun, exciting and memorable.

Yoga lessons
