SURFLIFE | Family Carcans

Enjoy a Surflife Family summer

The Surflife Family Carcans camp is located in the lovely small town Carcans-Ocean. Carcans is a cool French surf town. It’s where you’ll find fantastic sandy beaches and quiet surf line-ups for surfers of all levels.
You’ll find Carcans on the French Atlantic coast near Bordeaux and close to Lacanau which is famous for the international surfing competitions as well as the lovely shopping streets and restaurants. It’s a true surfing town with cosy bars, tasty restaurants and great (surf) shops. Go for a swim or paddle board tour with our Boga SUP boards in the nearby lake ‘Lac de Hourtin’.
Wake up and relax with our breakfast buffet and top off your beach day with our tasty and fresh ‘surf food’.
Our spot is only 300 meters away from both the beach and town. On our grounds you’ll find a Chill Out with lounge and hammock areas, play tipi for the children, trampoline, slackline and more. Enjoy our Open Mic night, relaxing yoga sessions, profesionnal surf lessons, the O’Neill surf contest, beachvolley and the best surfboards. Are you looking for a relaxed vibe with lots of surfing, yoga, animation and live music? Then your perfect family destination is Carcans.

If you’re looking for a perfect spot for your family to ride your first wave ever or want to improve your board skills, one of our favourite spots at the Atlantic Ocean, our Surflife Family Camp Carcans, will be your place to be for your summer vacation.
All our lessons are taught by our licensed surf instructors who are looking forward to have some fun in the water with you and your kids.
We only teach with soft-top surfboards which are more convenient when it come to safety in order to guarantee a lot of fun in the water for the entire family.
While staying with us you can try short- and longboards as well as SUPs, Body- and Skim boards – sounds like fun? We have them all ready for you to play as well after the lesson.

Our very own head chefs are highly motivated to prepare real surf soul food every day made out of fresh, local and healthy ingredients to satisfy each family member. Start your day right with a rich breakfast and get excited for culinary highlights and our weekly BBQ.
Vegetarian and vegan options are available upon request. If you have any allergies or other dietary requirements, please let us know in advance so we can cater for your needs on your surf holiday with us.

Our Surflife Family Camp welcomes you with a relaxed surf vibe where you can enjoy your time off at our chill out places in one of your restful hammocks or cosy sofas.
Our Surflife crew will surprise the kids with activities such as treasure hunts around the camp, a mini-disco or a beach evening with games, music and yummy limonade. Our weekly highlight is the beach clean-up where kids and parents contribute their part to a clean beach and ocean.
When staying with Surflife Family, we can provide you and your kids a Babysitter or day care in consultation with the sitter and the attending families up to 4 hours a day. While the kids are being taken care off, you can enjoy some time on your own and surf the best waves of your life with us.
After a day of surfing and chilling at the beach you will return to the Surf Camp for a sunset yoga session. Our qualified yoga teacher will guide you through inspiring yoga classes. The perfect way to gently, yet deeply stretch and strengthen your entire body, relax and totally unwind after a day in the sun and surf.

Staying with us means you will sleep in a large Tipi tent which is equipped with a large double bed, several air mattresses and blankets and pillows. Please just bring your own favourite bed linen.

Carcans Ocean is a great French surf village with several bars, restaurants, surf shops and other local shops.
Our Surflife Family Camp provides you not only the perfect place to enjoy your time in the water – what about testing your skills and play some beach volleyball and in building sand castles at the beach while the rest of the family sunbath or chill under our shadow tents?
