Learn to surf, practice all-level Yoga and live in a bohemian surf camp. Our Moliets surf & yoga camp offers you a laid back, social atmosphere with a friendly and international surf camp team, good food and a fun entertainment schedule in- and around the surf camp. It’s the ideal formula for you to come away energised and revitalised.
Here in Moliets, we host solo travellers, couples and small groups of friends. In true Star Surf Camps fashion, our surf camp team live onsite together with our surf holiday guests. Star Surf Camps are the only international surf camp in Moliets and we are proud to host surfers and surf holiday makers from all corners of Europe and beyond.
Our surf camp here in Moliets-Plage is part of a larger campsite which also hosts other surf camps and holiday makers. The campsite is ***-rated, has a reception, parking, playgrounds, sports courts and multiple shower and toilet blocks.
Nested into a quieter and more secluded spot on the campsite, our Moliets surf & yoga camp is made up of bell and tipi tents and a large covered yoga platform. The camp also includes a large shaded seating area for eating and entertaining, a tiki bar, a sunbathing deck. an outdoor cinema and plenty of fairy lights.
Plage de Moliets, our local surf beach, is a short, ten-minute walk from our campsite. During the summer months, the coastline around the Southwest of France offers great wave conditions for beginner surfers and intermediate surfers alike. Hit by consistent summer swells, Moliets-Plage is ideal for first-time surfers and everyone wanting to improve their existing surf skills. And with our qualified team of international surf instructors, you can be sure to be in good hands and learning from the best.
We run two entertainment schedules which we adjust to the weather and our guests’ preferences. If you’re up for a relaxed evening after an active and sunny day on the beach, join us for a sunset Yoga session on the beach or in the forest, our traditional French wine & cheese night, an outdoor surf camp movie night or a sunset session on the beach with music, drinks and volleyball.
If you’re feeling more energetic, our surf camp across the campsite offers more fantastic opportunities to mix and mingle with fellow surf holidaymakers for live music events and open mic nights, flunky ball, fancy dress parties, nights out on the town in Moliets’ local bars and more.
Between April and October, the coastline around Moliets-Plage is hit by consistent summer swells that offer great surfing conditions for both beginner and intermediate surfers.
The Surf Deluxe holiday package with a 6 session surf course is our most popular surf camp package here in Moliets. These include 4x 90 minutes of practical surf lessons on Moliets-Plage, the beach just outside the surf camp, 1x 90 minutes of breath & balance workshop as well as 1x 90 minutes of surf theory in the surf camp, teaching you about water safety, rip currents and the intricacies of French beach breaks.
During your weeks’ surf course, our surf instructors teach you the essentials of surfing, such as how to paddle into waves, catching waves, standing up and controlling your surfboard. We use ‘foamies’ for our surf lessons which are great for beginners to catch the most waves.
All our surf instructors are qualified, fully licensed in the country they teach surfing in and have a lifeguarding qualification. They have a good understanding of the wave conditions and local surf spots and are always ready to lend you a helping hand. The maximum group size for our surf lessons is eight surfers per one instructor, plus one surf assistant if required. The use of surf equipment (surfboard, leash and wetsuit) is included in you surf lessons.
Your first surf lesson will be on Sunday. We all meet at the surf tent for an introduction and wetsuit allocation in the morning of your first day surfing. We divide all surfers into beginner and intermediate groups. Your surf lesson times are displayed on our notice board in the surf camp.
Perfect for those of you who have never surfed before or have only done a few surf lessons/ a surf course, but have not surfed in a while and would benefit from starting with the basics. You will be learning the technique of paddling, standing up on a surfboard in white water and how to get the timing right to catch a wave.
The right choice for those of you who have done several surf lessons or courses and have good confidence in the white water and an understanding of the basics: paddling, standing up on a surfboard and catching a wave. The focus of our improver courses is on learning how to steer your surfboard with the right technique in both directions and on how to create speed.
Ideal for those of you who already have good confidence in the water, experience “out back” surfing green waves and can perform manoeuvres, like bottom and top turns. You have a good level of fitness and an understanding of currents. We will focus on more advanced surfing techniques, and participants use our premium range of surfboards with our most experienced surf instructors.
If you’re looking to spend more time surfing when on surf holidays with us in Moliets, you can add our Surf Lesson Upgrade during the booking process. Our Surf Lesson Upgrade includes 2x 90 minutes of additional surf lessons in the water with our surf team. If the conditions are right, we schedule at least one of these sessions at sunrise or sunset. Suited to both beginner and intermediate surfers, our Surf Lesson Upgrade allows for more time in the water with your surf instructor to further improve your surfing skills.
You can now rent your own surfboard, wetsuit and leash while on surfing holidays with us in our Moliets surf camp. With Plage de Moliets only a short walk from our surf camp, you can go surfing in your own time whenever you please and make the most of your surfing holidays in Southwest France. We have a good range of beginner surfboards in the surf camp. For safety reasons, all rental surfboards are soft ‘foamie’ surfboards, not hard surfboards. If you’re an intermediate to advanced surfer, we recommend you bring your own equipment.

Yoga has swept surfers off their feet with most professional surfers practising yoga to help improve flexibility, core strength and surfing performance. After a long day surfing, yoga is a fantastic way to improve your flexibility and strengthen your body.
We have built a large shaded yoga platform among the trees. We run a weekly yoga schedule with two yoga sessions per day (not Saturdays). Our enthusiastic and professional yoga instructors make their sessions fun and accessible to ‘Yogis’ of all levels.

We have vegetarian and vegan options available upon request. And if you have any allergies or other dietary requirements, please let us know during the booking process. Every Sunday, we invite you to join our traditional Wine & Cheese night where we sample local wines and cheeses – one of our surf camp week highlights.
We have 3 ‘eat out’ nights per week where we encourage you to visit one of the local restaurants here in Moliets-Plage. There are plenty of eateries on offer literally just a stone’s throw from our campsite. From traditional French cuisine to seafood, pizzas, burgers, churros and ice cream, we promise you you won’t go hungry. There are also several bakeries and supermarkets on Moliets-Plage’s high street for you to stock up on treats and drinks during the day.
Please note that we do not serve breakfasts on Saturdays due to early departures and late arrivals of many guests on change-over days. Thank you.
All our surf camp packages in our Moliets Surf & Yoga Camp include accommodation in one of our large bell tents as standard. Designed to sleep up to 8 people, you will be sharing a bell tent with a maximum of 1 other surf camp guest.
All bell tents have a centre pole, an interior mesh zip curtain behind the door curtains and come with mash windows at the base for better ventilation. The tents are tall enough to stand a surfboard in and wide enough for some morning yoga stretches.
All our bell tents are equipped with raised wooden bed frames, an electricity socket and lighting for that little bit of extra comfort while on surf holiday in Moliets. The tents can be set up as a twin option, with two single mattress, or as a couples option with one double mattress.

Our Moliets surf & yoga camp is located in the town of Moliets-Plage on the southwest coast of France. Just north of Hossegor, Europe’s surfing capital, Moliets is close to the Basque Country and northern Spain. Moliets is internationally known for its incredible waves and great summer vibes – the perfect formula for a fantastic and unforgettable surfing holiday.
Plage de Moliets is a wide, sandy beach on this stretch of coastline and it’s within easy walking distance from our campsite. It’s west-facing which means amazing sunsets in the evening!
The town of Moliets-Plage offers a buzzing strip along Avenue de l’Océan lined with shops, supermarkets, ice cream parlours and plenty of restaurants and bars. During the busy summer months, these bars are filled with fellow surf campers from across Europe and are the perfect place to mix and mingle.
There are plenty of walking and cycling trails all around Moliets-Plage which is why we have partnered with a local bike hire to get you bikes at a discounted rate.
For all adrenaline-seekers, there is a nearby Adrenaline Parc which offers a high ropes course and paintballing. For the golfers, there’s also an 18-hole golf course in Moliets.
The centre of Moliets-et-Maa is worth a visit to see the little chapel, Cafés and restaurants. The neighbouring village of Léon has a crazy golf course, offers paddle boarding and canoeing tours. Another great place to visit is Hossegor, the French surfing mecca that hosts the World Tour of Surfing each year. Besides many Cafés and restaurants, Hossegor also has some great shopping outlets.
We all love nothing more than the laid-back surfing lifestyle. The feeling of the sun kissing your skin after you’ve nailed your last wave of your surf session is simply priceless. But once or twice a week, we do fancy washing off the sand and salt to put on our glad rags and hit the road.
Just 20 km south of the French border lies the vibrant city of San Sebastián. Leaving our Moliets surf camp after your surf lessons, we start our San Sebastián trip in the afternoon with cool sangrias, delicious tapas and a tour around the old part of town and its bars. Once in San Sebastián, you have enough free time to explore the city on your own, go shopping, stroll through the quaint, little streets or see the stunning cathedral before we make our way up gorgeous Monte Urgull.
Overlooking San Sebastián’s breathtaking bay, the top of this hill makes for the ultimate starting point to a perfect night out. With a drink in your hand and a big smile on your face, watch an incredible sunset and get ready to hit the bars, nightclubs and to party all night long. This trip is an absolute must-do and certainly an adventure not to miss out on.
Biarritz, without a doubt, is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. That’s why locals often call the city “the Queen of the Basque country”. What sets Biarritz apart from the hundreds of other beautiful European coastal hot spots is that its beauty and charm are far from skin deep, as the city is steeped in rich culture and history with reference to the surfing world. It was on these very beaches that the first waves in Europe were surfed when a Californian filmmaker called for his surfboard to be shipped out all the way to France after seeing the beauty and the waves on offer. Since then this city has been on an even keel of surf and sophistication. Where else do you find a bond like casino on the beach serving up trendy cocktails as its patrons watch over the surfers and waves almost lapping up to the baccarat table?
The best thing about our Biarritz Day Trip is that there is so much to see and do, so much of this chic town to sample that will cost you next to nothing. We start our tour at the infamous lighthouse with panoramic views across the city and neighbouring beaches. Our walking tour will take you along the pristine coastline, across pedestrian bridges to tiny islands, among art installations and statues, through stained glass churches past our favourite ice cream parlours and will certainly end at a lively watering hole usually accompanied with live music. Et voila!
To ensure you have the best possible time when on surfing holidays with us in our Moliets surf camp, we’ve put together this handy pack list of things we recommend you bring along to the surf camp.
Please remember to bring 30€ in cash for your tent deposit. You’ll get it back at the end of your surfing holidays.
Please also note that France charges a ‘Taxe de Sejour’ or tourist tax of 0.80€ per pax/night, that’s 5.60€ for a week. This tax is not included in your surf holiday package price and is to be paid in cash upon arrival in the surf camp. Children under 18 are exempt from the tax. Thank you.
