Remote surf spots by private jet
Even though we call our planet Earth, the majority of it – around 71% – is covered by water. And while gentle, crystal-blue waves lapping a golden shore are enough to satisfy some travellers, others desire big waves and even bigger surfs. It’s time to ditch the overcrowded beaches and dive into the remote waters of some of the world’s most beautiful hidden surfing spots. So charter a private jet to these remote locations and don’t forget to bring your surfboard.
Uluwatu Beach, Bali
Famed for its pearly beaches and regular waves, Bali is a favourite destination of surfers from all over the world. But unlike the popular beaches at Kuta and Seminyak, Uluwatu Beach is the South Pacific’s hidden surfing paradise. Windswept swells and uncrowded shores make this beautiful beach an unspoiled surfing spot to behold.
Not only is Uluwatu Beach in Bali one of the best surfing spots in Indonesia, it is accompanied by a range of natural and cultural wonders. Nearby Uluwatu Temple, a cliff-edge Hindu sea temple, is one of the Six Sanctuaries of the World (Sad Kahyangan) – the holiest places of worship on Bali. To visit this stunning beach, simply charter a private jet to Ngurah Rai International Airport, and for somewhere to rest your head after a busy day surfing consider the luxurious holiday spot Alila Villas Uluwatu.
Mentawai Islands, Sumatra
Elsewhere in Indonesia, the Mentawai Islands are perfect for anyone seeking a blend of ocean-riding adventure and oceanside relaxation. This remote location boasts a range of two- to 12-foot waves, offering surfers of all levels the chance to get involved. An array of coral reefs and secluded bays offer surfers a much-needed break and opportunity to explore. To visit this remote surfing spot, charter a private jet to Rokot Airport on Pulau Sipora. Set your bags down at Kandui Resort, an exclusive beachfront enclave where you can unwind between surfing sessions.
Andaman and Nicobar Islands
Located off the coast of India, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands are some of the world’s remotest. Famed for its great reefs and aqua blue waters, North Sentinel Island is nothing short of a surfer’s paradise. Access to this faraway surfing sport is notoriously difficult to secure, but it’s well worth the effort.
To be one of the few surfers ever to have ridden the swells of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, charter a private jet to Veer Savarkar International Airport (more commonly known as Port Blair Airport). For a retreat that offers endless relaxation, book a beachfront room at Munjoh Ocean Resort.
Western Madagascar is so isolated that it takes 24 hours of off-road driving from Antananarivo to get there. Throw in a four-hour boat ride through a chain of offshore islands and you’ll be surfing the waves of the Indian Ocean and immersing yourself in the Vezo culture. On Madagascar’s south-west coastline, surf the incredible breaks near Ifaty Beach in peace – this secret beach has no crowds and, even better, no sharks! For a trip you’ll never forget, set up camp with the Vezo people or retreat to a thatched bungalow at the idyllic Constance Tsarabanjina.
Playa Jaco, Costa Rica
For a surfing experience unlike any other, charter a private jet to Aero Tortuguero Airport in Costa Rica and head straight for Playa Jaco. Meaning “Rich Coast” in Spanish, this remote surfing spot is rich in both name and nature with a two-and-a-half mile stretch of sandy coastline. With a range of surrounding beaches including Playa Guiones in Nosara and Playa Tamarindo in Tamarindo, this region has a beach and a wave for everyone. To surf under the South American sun on an unspoiled beach, charter a private jet to Costa Rica and head for the the luxurious Casa Chameleon at Las Catalinas.
Black Rock, Australia
Renowned as the home of the surfer dude, Australia is a well-known surfing capital of the world. But Black Rock, located south of Booderee National Park and on the eastern point of Wreck Bay, can only be reached after travelling 100 miles from Sydney to Jervis Bay, followed by a 15-minute hike through a bush track. Also known as the Aussie Pipe, Black Rock is one of the last few unspoiled surf spots in Australia with its uncrowded shores and big surfs. For a luxury hotel to relax at in between catching waves, check-in at Bayview Beach House for unrivalled views of the South Pacific Ocean.
