Adventurous travelers staying in luxury vacation rentals along illustrious coastlines this summer might be more inclined to jump into the water than simply sit and stare at it. If you're the type of vacationer who can't spend a moment in idleness, you don't have to sacrifice your morning scouring for the perfect waves while you're exploring the world.
Here are some of the world's best surfing destinations, which luckily for you, are located right around the corner from luxury villas:
Biarritz: France's California
Nestled in the southwest corner of France, Biarritz is just a few miles away from the nearest luxury rental.
When Napoleon III took his wife Empress Eugenie to the glittering shores of Biarritz, France, the couple immediately fell in love with the coast and built one of their summer castles right on the beach. Today, the town is an opulent getaway for luxury travelers who consider hitting the waves just as important as enjoying a glass of fine wine.
At Les 100 Marches, a charming little outdoor restaurant popular among young locals, you can celebrate a day of surfing over a glass of champagne and cheese platter.
San Sebastian: Skipping over to Spain
If you're staying at villas in France on the southwestern coast, the beautiful San Sebastian is just a short drive away. Recently hailed as the culinary capital of Europe, this savvy city has become a mecca for surfers and foodies alike.
"It's a small city where you can surf at Zurriola Beach, then walk over to the old part of the city for a few pintxos, a couple glasses of beer and an incredibly authentic ambiance," tourism official Jokin Arroyo Uriarte told National Geographic. "Apart from having one of the most beautiful bays in the world, Bahia de la Concha, the city has a love affair with surfing and tons of infrastructure for the visiting surfer."
Nosara, Costa Rica: For the rookie surfer
First-time surfers can easily catch a few waves at the beaches in Nosara, Costa Rica. While the country is known for having impeccable conditions throughout the year, the warm waters of Nosara attract riders with chilled out attitudes and a penchant for a lazy afternoon. The waves are both easy to catch and easy to paddle out to, making Nosara ideal for travelers who might not want to feel the burn after a day of surfing. Additionally, like all of the other hot surfing spots, Nosara is just a short drive away from the nearest villa rental.
