The Port Elliot Beach House, on South Australia's spectacular Fleurieu Peninsula, is in a breezy, historic building. It offers very comfortable accommodation, with shared dorms, double or twin, and family rooms.
Arriving on the Fleurieu Peninsula on the Friday evening to check into your accommodation for the weekend, the staff will greet you and start your weekend off with a yoga session before your evening meal. After dinner, you will have time to relax for the evening and get to know the other participants.
Saturday will consist of a pre-breakfast yoga session, then after breakfast you will head off to hit the waves at Middleton Beach. After lunch, you have the option of a 60 minute massage (extra charge) and some time to have a look around the area. The evening will consist of an African Drumming session followed by a Kirtan before dinner is served. Sunday will once again start with an early morning yoga session, massage or free time, lunch, and an afternoon surf lesson before returning to your accommodation at approximately 3:30 p.m. to finish up this perfect weekend away.
The retreat will take place on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula. The accommodation, yoga and drumming meditation sessions are set in Port Elliot, while surf lessons are conducted just down the road at Middleton Beach. The hostel has 270-degree views and the beach is just a short stroll across the road. A self-catering kitchen and spacious lounge and dining area provide plenty of options for relaxing, unwinding, and breathing in the sea air.

"Fantastic experience for our family of 5. The professional and friendly service was very much appreciated. Middleton Beach was a perfect place to learn how to surf. The best part was a greater understanding of safety in the water - like being aware of rips. Highly recommend Surf n Sun to anyone wanting a safe and sun surfing experience."

"It was a family fun surf day! This surf lesson was given to us as a Christmas gift a fantastic idea as our family of 6 which includes 3 teenagers had a terrific time. Dave our instructor was great picked our strengths and weakness's straight away and was very good with the kids. Even getting us to warm up prior knowing we would most likely be sore the next day. The beach at Middleton is perfect the water was beautiful not big waves which was great for us beginners. The team provide everything from wet suits to sunscreen. Would do it again thanks Surf & Sun.

"I was impressed with Surf & Sun right from the day l called to inquire into Christmas presents. Luke assisted me in finding the most cost effective way to get the whole family a surf session. Individual vouchers arrived a day later in the mail (much easier than printing off vouchers when you are time poor at Christmas), very professional! On the day, they were quick at kitting the family out with wet suits, rashes, & boards. The family came home glowing! They had a good two hours session time with Dave and their feedback includes; tolerant, patient, inspiring, gauged everyone's ability and coached to each of us individually, included grandma on the beach. I think the adults in the group especially appreciated the stretches and warm up, first later in the day & the day after. For me that really shows you as an organisation who cares. This was a teenage stocking filler success in our house, but I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone anytime."

"Easy to book and easy to learn. Excellent instructors, they are both friendly and professional. Prompt start. Program covers all ages. I wish I had done it myself. Next time! Would highly recommend as a family experience."
"The best place to learn to surf. My daughter stood up on the board on her first lesson. The instructors were so helpful and friendly, my daughter had a ball. I was impressed by the total professionalism of the company, a real pleasure to have dealt with them. It was great to see a beaming smile on my daughters face, when she stood up on the board for the first time."
"My daughter and I stood up first lesson! Our instructors were encouraging and helpful and we always felt safe. We enjoyed our lesson so much we have made it a weekly event."
"Such an awesome morning with Surf and Sun. I booked a group lesson for myself and family visiting from the UK, never having surfed before and most of us were on our feet in the water first day. The staff were great and friendly. They made sure everyone knew what they were doing and had fun in the water. I will be going back soon with my partner who at the last minute couldn't make it and is jealous of the pictures that were taken."
