We’ve covered some of the top surfing destinations on the planet before, but you can never have too many surfing spots on your bucket list! Here are some more destinations to add to your surfing wish list. No matter where you live or where you plan to travel in the world, this list should have a spot that will work for you.
Huntington Beach is known as “Surf City, U.S.A.” If you’re looking for a total emersion into the surfing culture, this is the place for you. With that in mind, the town can get a bit crowded. The good news is that the beach is almost 9 miles long so you shouldn’t have any problems finding a spot that works for you.
Vancouver Island, Canada
If Huntington Beach is “Surf City, U.S.A.,” Tofino is “Surf City, Canada.” The surrounding forest around the west side of Vancouver Island makes this a gorgeous destination, but make sure you bring a thick wetsuit because the water here is COLD!
Australia has no shortage of great surfing spots. Bondi is usually the first location folks think of when they think of Australian surfing destinations, and for that reason, Bondi is normally crowded. Bronte Beach is a smaller beach, less crowded and the waves are every bit as good as what you’ll find at Bondi.
While France might not be the first place you think of when it comes to surfing destinations, make no mistake, the rocky flanks and strong winds at Les Cavaliers produce some seriously big waves. Amateur surfers need not apply!
Siargao Island, Philippines
This surf destination was only just discovered in the 80s but it’s quickly become a popular destination for surfers who travel to the Philippines. The waves break over a shallow reef, creating thick tubes that are perfect for riders of all skill levels.
Okinawa only has sand bars in one place, and that’s White Beach. With that said, it’s a great place to surf but it can also get crowded on weekends.
