family surf break itinerary

Friday pm: Arrive, stretch and splash

Make yourself at home in a two-bedroom apartment or family suite beside the waves at the Watergate Bay Hotel. Pad down to the beach or explore the hotel facilities including the Swim Club, restaurants and kids’clubroom.

Parents can loosen up with a gentle yoga-flow session, while kids find the clubroom. Then there’s time for an invigorating coldwater dip in the Atlantic Ocean to fully immerse yourself in the coastal elements.

In the evening we’ll book a table for you and your family at one of Watergate Bay Hotel’s restaurants.


Saturday: Sea you on the beach

Wake up and energise with a beach fitness session, before fuelling up with a delicious breakfast. Then it’s time to hit the waves for your first surf lesson. Private family group sessions are available, or we can organise group sessions according to your abilities.

For lunch there are pop-up food trucks or you can pre-order a hand-delivered grazing hamper stacked with local ingredients.

In the afternoon you’ll learn about rip currents, wildlife and safety in the surf during a fun-packed a Sea Surf Safety Session led by an expert beach surf ranger.

Saturday pm: Sunset yoga and swim club

After an active day it’s time for parents to break out for a gentle yoga session in the Sea Lane studio. Then you can all enjoy Watergate Bay’s Swim Club, with its indoor pool, sauna and hot tub. Spa treatments can also be pre-booked.

Round up the evening with a family dinner at The Beach Hut or one of the hotel restaurants. Or, if you’d prefer a couple’s dinner, we suggest booking a table at Emily Scott Food and a babysitting service is available.

Sunday am: Surf’s up

After a breakfast with the family, it’s time to hone your skills with a second surfing lesson. Once you’ve had some ocean fun, check out of the room, then relax with a coffee and sharing platters in the Living Space.

Get a blast of sea air before going home, or if you’re not ready to head back on Sunday night, chat to us about extending your trip to a 3-night stay.

So, as lifeguards and experienced surfers we bring together surf tuition, sea safety skills, fun beach activities and like-minded families, so that you can relax, re-energise and make the most of the ocean’s natural playground.
