At both spots breakfast and dinner is prepared by our onsite chefs and are included in the price. There’s nothing quite like coming back from an exhausting day of surfing to a freshly cooked meal, a stunning view, and a cold drink. You have the choice of Double Rooms and Dorms at both houses and each room always has its own private bathroom.
Close to the camp you have the option to go whale watching and check out Blue Whales, that happen to be the largest animal in the world. You can go to Yale National Park and go on a Safari and see things like elephants, snakes, crocodiles or if you’re lucky a leopard. There are also sea turtle hatcheries, tea plantations, Nature Reserves and endless palm-tree-lined white sand beaches nearby to explore.
