You also get to take whatever you can’t try in the mornings as a picnic lunch for your day out surfing!
Five nights out of your surfing holiday week in our Moliets Surf Camp, we serve you a hearty dinner with variations of desserts. We love a good BBQ here at Star Surf Camps so, once a week, we get the coals burning and the summer vibes flowing for our delicious tarp surfing BBQ feast. And on the chef’s night off, we highly recommend you join our ‘Tapas, Sangria & Party Tour’ to San Sebastián which is one of the culinary and social highlights of the surf camp week in Moliets!
For a little snack during the day, we also have our on-site snack shack for ice creams, snacks, cold drinks, chocolate bars and other little treats that will keep you going on all of your sunny Molietes Surf Camp days!
We all love nothing more than the laid-back surfing lifestyle. The feeling of the sun kissing your wet 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 kilometres south of the French boarder, along the crystal clear coast of the beautiful Bay of Biscay, lies the vibrant city of San Sebastián. Its gorgeous harbour, lively city centre and grand Spanish plazas give the city a glamorous and sophisticated atmosphere by day, while uncountable busy tapas bars and numerous energetic night clubs make for its flirtatious and crazy vibe at night. Join Star Surf Camps on our fantastic day trip away from the surf to this city we’re sure you’ll be falling in love with!
Leaving our Moliets Surf Camp after your surf lessons, we start our San Sebastián day 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 breath-taking 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, night clubs and to party all night long! In other words, it’s as easy as this: SanSebastián’s Spanish flair and great summer vibes together with our awesome Star Surf Camps atmosphere make our trip here 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 historical relevance with particular reference to the surfing world. It was actually 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 voilla!
If you’re still looking for more action on your Moliets surfing holidays, our Star Surf Camps Moliets Team is on-site and can arrange for you to go paint balling, hit the trees in a nearby high ropes course or go explore the Southwest of France on horseback. Besides, from beach games, volleyball and table tennis tournaments to slip’n’slide and skate competitions, our fun-loving Moliets Surf Team is always up for all sorts of spontaneous entertainment ideas you and your friends come up with!
Allover the world, yoga has swept surfers off their feet with all professional surfers using yoga to improve their flexibility, core strength and surfing performance. So, if after a long surf camp day surfing you feel like you could do with some stretching, yoga is a fantastic way to improve your flexibility and to strengthen your body!
New to our Moliets surf camp this year are our Surf Yoga Sessions, included in all our Moliets Surf Holiday Packages. For those of you who heve never done yoga before, your group session is a fun and informal introduction to surf yoga. For all experienced yogis joining Star Surf Camps in Moliets, your group yoga session will focus upon how yoga can compliment your surfing.
Fancy more yoga during your Moliets surfing holidays? No problem at all! More sessions can be booked when in the surf camp. In Moliets, our enthusiastic and professional yoga instructors make their sessions fun and accessible to ‘yogis’ of all levels.
Our famous Moliets Surf Camp is located in the vibrant town of Moliets-Plage on the southwest coast of France.

To make sure your surfing holidays in Moliets run as smoothly as they possibly can, here’s a list of a few things you shouldn’t forget:

We recommend you arrive in the surf camp on a Saturday, as our surf camp week schedule runs from Saturdays to Saturdays, and we really wouldn't want you to miss any of our amazing welcome entertainment. If you cannot get to the surf camp on Saturday, we recommend you arrive on Sunday morning at the latest, so you don't miss your very first surf lesson in the afternoon.
Staying for a few extra days in our surf camp is generally not a problem, especially not during low season. Simply speak to one of our surf travel experts in advance, so we can make arrangements for you in our surf camp and let our surf team know!
No, you don't! The use of all surf equipment (wetsuit, leash & surfboard) is included in- and outside of surf lesson time when you book our most popular surf holiday package, SURF & RELAX. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough equipment to cater for everyone to surf at the same time. However, we have rotating surf lessons which leaves plenty of gear to go around.
Yes, we can supply bedding for those who do not wish to travel with a pillow and sleeping bag. Please select this bedding option in the booking form.
Good questions! Here's a little list of what to bring to the surf camp:
- towel & toiletries
- sunscreen & beachwear
- sleeping bag & pillow
- cutlery, cup & plate
- USB stick for surf photos
But of course! Our surf camp tents are big enough to keep your own surf equipment in should you wish to bring it. Flight operators usually charge additional luggage fees for taking surfboards, so please check with your flight operator's Large Sports Luggage policy before arriving at the airport to avoid costly fees.
We recommend you hire a car when travelling from Biarritz or Bordeaux Airport WITH A SURFBORD. Public transport companies may refuse to take large sports equipment on busy routes. There are rental car companies in each airport. However, booking in advance is often much cheaper.
In Moliets, there is free parking outside of our campsite. Should you wish to bring your car onto the campsite, you will need to pay a small fee directly at the campsites reception. (Low season: 1.50€/night; High season: 2.50€/night).
Solo travellers are encouraged to share our spacious bell tents with a max of 2 other surf holiday guests. Whilst the thought of sharing a tent with people you’ve not met before may be nerve-racking, your surf roomies will be in a similar situation. At Star Surf Camps, we strive to create a friendly environment where interaction and participation are promoted. Whilst you might arrive as strangers, you will leave as friends - making great summer memories along the way. We will always plan to put female solo travellers together and the same for male solo travellers.
EU passport holders do not require a visa to enter France for tourist purposes. Your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay. If you hold a passport from outside the European Union we strongly recommend that you check with your nearest French Embassy.
If you're older than 18, love to have fun, to party and to meet new people from around the world, a surf holiday in our surf camp in Moliets is perfect for you!
