There are many factors to consider when seeking out the perfect surf spot. The quality of wind, swell, tide, scenery and more all have a pivotal role to play when it comes to determining the calibre of surfing locations. Read on to find out more about the world’s top five surfing locations for surf, accommodation and hospitality.

These islands are located just off the western coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. The biggest swells occur between June and September, and you can reach the islands via ferry or charter. The best-known waves in Mentawai include Lance’s Left and Lance’s Right and Bankvaults. Beginners are perhaps best catered-for by Gilligan’s.

4.Watergate Bay, Cornwall, England
Watergate Bay is one of the most picturesque and charming surf sports in the south-west of England and offers waves that can reach three metres.
