"A seriously fun week"
My trip to Praia de Areia Branca exceeded my expectations!
Our house host and coincidentally surf instructor, Gonzalo, met me at the bus stop and gave me a short tour of the town and showed me to the house and my bedroom. The Neptune surf house was clean and tidy, my bed was comfortable and there was a lovely balcony which had brilliant views of the beach. Gonzalo did an amazing job of looking after all of us that were staying there. Nobody knew each other on arrival but we soon became good friends thanks to the surf lessons and Gonzalo organising a couple of activities outside of surfing, like a group dinner in town or drinks on a beach bar. They went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable and looked after. For example, I realised I needed to take a covid test before I flew back to the UK so Gonzalo's brother kindly organised and drove me to a nearby town and back so I could get one done. The breakfast was simple but perfect for a full day out in the sea.
All in all it was a fantastic week filled with loads of surfing, laughs and good vibes all round. The trip was incredible value for money and i'll definitely be planning another visit in the near future :)

Everything I wanted and more! I had an amazing stay in a piece of paradise. Praia is really small which makes it easy to socialise with other travelers as well as with locals. The hostel was perfect and host Jerome is just the sweetest. Nice areas to socialise (= take naps together after surfing....) in the house and on the terrace!
Surfing classes were intense but absolutely wonderful. Groups were never too big so everyone got enough attention and most people were catching waves om the first day already :) The instructors are amazing and keen to get to know everyone.
If all you want to do is surf, lay on the beach, socialise and go to some beach party - this is absolutely the place to go. :)
