There are two main travel options depending on cost and whether you want to explore Madagascar.

If you have a few days to spare and want to save some money, take the backpacker route where we journey across Madagascar overland in a private car from Antananarivo to the closest city to the surf camp (Toliara).

The journey takes 2 days, staying overnight in the town of Fianarantsoa.

The second option, for anyone short on time, is to fly direct to Toliara:

Fly Direct (28/06/19 - 12/07/19)

  1. Return flight from London to Antananarivo = c. £700

  2. Return flight from Antananarivo to Toliara = c.£180 (find flights at - surfboards cost an additional €48 for each flights.

  3. Return ferry from Toliara to the resort = £50

Total cost of the flying route is around £930

Backpacker Route (from 27/06/19 - 14/07/19)

  1. Flight from London to Antananarivo = c.£650 (there is a Kenya Airways flight leaving London on Thursday 27th June and returning on Saturday 13th July)

  2. Private driver from Antananarivo to the south coast (driving down on 28th and 29th and returning on 12th and 13th July)= £30 per person each way

  3. Hotel for overnight stay in Fianarantsoa = £15 a night

  4. Boat ferry from Toliara to the resort = £25 each way

Total cost of the backpacker route is around £790 return


The beauty of working so hard to get somewhere is the freedom to surf alone – for this remote spot, that really does mean just you and your mates in the water!
