Europe’s premier surfing holiday company, The Perfect Wave, has added five new options for 2013 in Barbados, Taiwan, the Maldives, Morocco and Portugal, taking the total number of countries on offer beyond 20, from Ireland to Australia and Hawaii to Iceland.

Atlantis Hotel - Barbados

The Atlantis Hotel, located on the east coasty of Barbados is an historic 19th century property which has recently undergone total refurbishment.

A week’s stay costs from £742.50 pp (two sharing) including return airport transfers, 7 nights’ accommodation in an Ocean Front Room, daily breakfast.

Surf Taiwan

Dubbed the ‘Hawaii of Asia’, the mountainous island of Taiwan is sandwiched between the Philippines and Japan. Home to thriving, modern cities, it also possesses stunning scenery and great beaches. The island offers breaks for all levels of surfers from beginners to pros, with beach breaks, river-mouths, points & the odd rock/reef setup. There is also plenty to do away from the surf including exploring ancient temples, visiting tea plantations, national parks and bike trails. A week’s stay costs from £664.00 pp (two sharing) which includes return airport transfers to and from Kaohsiung Airport, 7 nights’ B&B, bilingual tour and surf guide.

It also includes tour guiding to local cultural attractions such as temples and markets.

Kandooma Island - Maldives

Located on the eastern edge of the South Male Atoll, Kandooma Island boasts every pre-conceived cliché about this part of the word with white sands, azure skies, tropical greenery and clear turquoise waters. Accommodation is at Kandooma Resort, considered by The Perfect Wave to be one of the best surf resorts in the world with a surf break virtually at the front door. There is a beginner’s wave which breaks close to the resort but the resort is more suitable for low intermediate surfers and above. “Kandooma Right” is accessible right off the resort and is an amazing right hand point break. Twice a day the resident surf guide takes guests by boat to the top wave spots with a wide range of waves suitable for long-boarders to fast barrelling reef breaks.
