Accommodation

Kempt Tower was originally built as a defensive tower against possible French invasion. Constructed with Jersey granite, the Tower has the best of both worlds, with being a stone’s throw from the beach below and also picturesque paths through Jersey’s wetland nature reserve and sand dunes just minutes away. The Tower is our sanctuary for the retreat. There is a rooftop area with magnificent views across the bay.

The nature of Drift is about sharing this unique experience together. The Tower is open-plan and there are bunk beds with a double bed as the bottom bunk and a single bed on the top. It is possible to share the double bottom bunk at a reduced rate per person.

The beds are comfy and cozy for a good night's sleep after a day by the sea. This is closer to glamping than camping and bunks are divided by screens if requested. Linen and towels are provided. There are hot showers and a comfortable living and dining space with a wood burner and a selection of classic surf films and good books.

Program

At Drift, we take time out in nature, share delicious wholesome food, practice yoga and get in the sea. We stay in a magical, historic Tower renovated with all the mod-cons, located within the Jersey National Park. We are five minutes drive from the airport and transfers are included. Surfing and yoga are the staples of every day whilst there are numerous additional activities available.

Nutritious organic vegetarian food is served for every meal: Mostly gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free deliciousness. Fill up with healthy fuel needed for your day, detoxing without noticing: Fresh juices, smoothies, superfoods, Raw snacks, mostly organic locally sourced and wholesome food.

Wake up to yoga each morning, surf sessions every day and explore the nature and wildlife on your doorstep with five miles of pristine beach and Jersey National Trust’s Wetland Centre nearby. Nature dictates the schedule. We are flexible and we roll with what the conditions dictate. If there are waves, we surf. If the surf is flat, we SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board). If the wind is strong we visit a more sheltered beach. We aim for a group swim in the sea every day. In the afternoons we walk or go foraging for wild food or you can relax and enjoy a massage.

The Tower is your sanctuary for the duration of your visit. We adapt to make sure we make the most of the conditions and offer everyone the best experience of nature and wild adventures balanced with healthy downtime and relaxation. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Yoga

At Drift, we want to move our bodies and spend time with our 'selfs’ honoring the good intention to put aside some time for our own personal movement and development. We run a one-hour yoga session each morning and an hour each afternoon minimum over the four day weekend. We are very relaxed when it comes to our yoga, just like everything else. The main thing is to get moving and fluid. The relaxed style of our teachers means it is mostly about having fun.

It will be more about cultivating balance by combining both Yin and Yang yoga. Vinyasa Flow to move, strengthen, stretch and breathe - a dynamic style focused on synchronizing breath with movement to build awareness of the whole body; create flexibility, stability, and coordination; following alignment principles to allow more energy flow throughout.

Yin yoga to restore and delve into the fascia, connective tissues and reach the organs through the Chinese meridians. More static, floor based and rooted in mindfulness; it is a functional approach and accessible to all. We’re focused on being happy, confident and getting the good energy flowing.

The afternoon class is even more relaxed with an easier session designed to stretch out the muscles used in the day’s activities and usually incorporating elements of mindfulness and meditation. Just like the best surfer is the one having the most fun, our ethos is the best yogi is the one with the biggest smile.

Water

Where would we be without it? We are all made of it. Sometimes the best thing for us is to spend a little time on it. At Drift, we like to get in the sea all year round, no matter the weather. We focus on surfing with a one hour and a half session every day tailored to individual needs. We cater for complete beginners through to intermediate surfers wishing to improve. We can film surf sessions so you can analyze your form if you wish and you can receive individual feedback on your progress and style from our coaches.

If there are waves we surf. If the surf is flat, we SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) or SUP yoga or kayak or go coasteering. If it’s too big we go to a different sheltered bay and we can consider a different activity to fit the conditions.

Surfing is about the pure child-like joy of riding a wave, whether you do that lying on your belly, or you are a seasoned pro, Drift is about having fun. It’s as simple as that. The tide dictates when we surf and this decides when surf lessons will be each day.

No matter what we will provide excellent activities designed to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated by your time by the sea.

Retreat location

Drift is located in the magical Channel Islands, surrounded by some of the cleanest beaches in Europe and best coastline in the British Isles. We are based in one of Jersey's most amazing locations: the iconic Kempt Tower, built in 1834, restored with all the modern conveniences, situated inside the Jersey National Park, which encompasses 1900 hectares of fully protected coastline. Kempt Tower is perfectly situated overlooking St Ouen's five-mile beach on one side and the Pond Nature Reserve with a state-of-the-art bird hide on the other.

There are many beautiful coastal walks, bays and beaches to explore. Or you can simply relax on the beach or up on the roof of your Martello Tower; home for your retreat. The whole experience is about unplugging from the stresses of modern life, digitally detoxing and getting back in touch with nature, so you'll leave feeling refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated.
