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 their participants with comfortable, fancy tents and high-quality mattresses.

Glamping 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 outdoor lifestyles but forget all those negative aspects and enjoy complete comfort.

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


  • Cozy and comfortably furnished tents with bedding, lighting, and power
  • A unique and exclusive design integrated with nature
  • Perfect for couples: a romantic and private retreat
  • A fancy eco-friendly space
  • Includes a nice welcome present: a bottle of wine

Normal tent

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 for yourself, they offer you a more economic option. These tents have exactly the same quality as the glampìng tents but with 3 or 4 single beds. They are shared for one to four people traveling together. 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 want to share your tent with friends you are traveling with, you should do the booking together or write down the name of your friends in the comments area during the booking process.

  • Cozy and comfortable shared tents with 2 to 4 single 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
