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

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 forgetting all those negatives aspects and enjoying complete comfort.

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

  • A unique and exclusive design integrated with nature.

  • A fancy eco-friendly space.
  • Includes a nice welcome present: a bottle of wine.

Shared Normal 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, we offer you a more economic option with the shared normal tents with 3 or 4 single beds. Choosing this option doesn’t mean losing comfort.

  • Cozy and comfortable tents with 3 or 4 single beds, lighting, and power on a wooden deck.
  • Perfect choice for groups or solo travelers
  • Be part of the surf camp life and don't miss anything.
  • Bedding and shower towel included, travel lighter.

Program

Surf lessons

Depending also on the time you want to spend in the water with an instructor, and your fitness level, we offer two different options, the basic surfing course of 10 hours, usually having one lesson per day, or the intensive course of 15 hours, with 2 surfing sessions per day.

This makes Dreamsea Surf Camp Spain as the best option if you are really interested in learning how to surf. All with the best qualified and experienced instructors you can imagine. All instructors in Dreamsea Surf Camp Spain will teach you not just how to surf, but how to enjoy the ride, and most importantly, how to enjoy the learning process, in a lifetime experience. They have the best equipment, which you can use even after the surfing lessons, all for free.

With Dreamsea Surf Camp Spain you can be assured of safety and comfort in the water, this is down to the fact that they provide one instructor per eight students. Their instructors will be in the water helping you out, so you will be able to take advantage of the personal attendance your instructors will give you. Your instructor will also be the same all week long, meaning you will be able to forge a relationship that will help get the best out of your lessons.

If you already have enough experience to surf independently and want to have the fun of a surf camp experience, you can join Dreamsea Surf Camp Spain without having lessons with free access to all the equipment, including the surf equipment.

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.

The surfing program is divided in three levels:
