Covid-19 safety

We are delighted to announce that we are now open for private surf lessons and sup tours. The outdoors and sunlight are both highly protective against transmission of the virus and ocean sports by nature are non-contact and socially distanced. 
In addition to the government guidelines for outdoor activity providers issued on 13/05/2020, we have a 9-point pledge to all of our customers which you can read here



Surf Sanctuary is a surf school and hire shop for families, individuals and small groups. Here, we offer you bespoke and group sessions in surfing, coasteering, standup paddle, snorkel tours and ocean confidence training. 

Our philosophy is that everyone can enjoy surfing and feel confident and happy in the water. Arbitrary technical checkpoints aren't important, but being on the trajectory of fun and self-development is :) 

We are immensely proud to be located and serve as the on-site surf school at the five-star Headland Hotel. Located in the western corner of the hotel, our base looks directly over the surf at Fistral Beach. 

Our mission is to give you the best surf experience possible, and for you to join our ever growing base of surfers that return to us year after year.
