The surf school was very good and the teachers of this school were pro, Funny, good advices (friends of the ocean).
- 2 days before the camp, she write is to change the localisation... no more in a villa...
- we always had to ask for the programm, for the timing or we would not have activities... she was passive for the organisation
- the absence of the organiser (she was only there for breakfast and we did not expect that of a camp) - she gave lessons to people who were not in the camp and not to you)
- the organiser change the Time of the activities a few Time during the day
Highlights not all respected:
- we did not get to see turtles, even if we ask. And we choose this camp for this activity and tell it when booked
- we did not test other spots
I had a great time with Gala and her team at Jagga Surf Camp. It felt like I was at home and the team was very friendly and helpful in learning to surf and exploring the island. I would definitely recommend staying here for a memorable active vacation! I would go back and stay there again.

I’ve spent a marvelous nine days from my vacation at Jagga Surf Camp surfing, doing yoga, sightseeing, and many more. I’ve also celebrated my birthday with other camp visitors and the owner herself. It was a great experience indeed and worth repeating. Thank you, Galya for all your time, for being a great friend, a driver, a host, a company, and an idea-creator. You inspire me, you create a pleasant atmosphere around you, and you always smile and laugh. I’d be happy to come back to your camp!
