"Surf Resort has a dream wave right on its doorstep"

If you are new to surfing then you might be forgiven for not knowing that Chicama in northern Peru is home to the longest left hand ride in the world and as such, features prominently on any surfer's dream destination wish list. At Chicama Surf Resort not only do you have this dream wave right on your doorstep but you also have lots of amenities to enhance your holiday experience and a boat tow service available. One thing is for certain – you will never have surfed a longer wave than Chicama.

"Enjoy prime accommodation in a private bungalow"

During you stay at Chicama Surf Resort you will enjoy prime accommodation in a private bungalow. Meals come in the form of bed and breakfast or full meal arrangements. Truly, the location alone would be enough to keep many surfers super-happy but you will get so much more. This includes a private pool with spa facilities and a Jacuzzi – places to chill out and kick back or soak away the pains that come from being SO long on your feet on your local epic wave.

Your location at Chicama Surf Resort means that the legendary Chicama left – the longest wave in the world remember – is right in front of you. Rides of 500 meters plus are the norm, 1 km is achievable and locals insist that 2.2 km rides are not just possible but have taken place during bigger swells.

You might also be pleased to know that Chicama isn't just long but receives consistently offshore winds and is definitely rippable. The wave offers various sections, some faster, some slower. One of the sections gets hollow and powerful where it breaks over a rock bottom – typically speaking the bigger the swell the better the wave.

Should the swell make Chicama a little less workable or you get tired of riding its endless length (as if!) then there are other left handers which can be accessed with the resort's van.

Packages include bed and breakfast, with a full board upgrade option, as well as the possibility of boat tow services, the chance to spoil yourself in the spa and of course the opportunity to surf your brains out on kilometer long rides.

Prime accommodation in front of the world's longest wave – what are you waiting for!
