Surfing on a private beach
Brazil is the perfect destination for all surfers. There is a golden sand beach for every surf level. Added with the lust of the of the locals, Brazil is perfect for a retreat: Surf. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
Brazil is closer than most people think. From Frankfurt it’s just a ten hours direct flight to Salvador de Bahia. Even a single week of retreat full of surf is worth it. Especially in the German autumn time, when it’s rainy and cold in Europe, but dry and not too hot in Brazil. For me Brazil offers the most beautiful sunrises. That’s why it’s worth it to get up at five o’clock to see the sunrise. The easiest way for a surf trip in Brazil is joining a surf camp. Mostly everything is included, even the transfer from and to the airport. This surfcamp I can warmly recommend, I stayed there three times:
Trips in and around Salvador de Bahia
Sea turtles are protected in Brazil. There are a lot of organizations like Projeto Tamar. In Praia do Forte or Arembepe you can inform you about these beautiful and rare animals. It’s worth it to go there for a day-trip. More information: http://www.tamar.org.br
The city of Salvador de Bahia is also worth to visit. The harbor is very important for the trade of Brazil. Best way to discover the city is to hire a taxi driver to bring you to the most famous places.
