Yoga and Surf Retreats in Nicaragua!

If you are thinking about making a surf trip, we highly recommed the sunny shores of Nicaragua in Central America. We travelled to Playa Gigante and found some incredible waves and some even more wonderful people.

Our lovely friends at Papaya Wellness have some incredible retreats available, if you want to get away, eat healthy, surf and practice yoga everyday.

Their all inclusive retreats will immerse you in mindful, recharging yoga and challenge you in the epic Nicaraguan surf. They’ve done all the work in the beautiful coastal town, to ensure that you will have nothing to worry about except having the most relaxing, healthy, fun and inspiring vacation!

They offer all inclusive retreats to accommodate your needs for relaxation, rejuvenation and enjoyment, including airport transport, healthy detoxing meals, and a variety of yoga classes and surf sessions to keep you motivated and fulfilled. Papaya Wellness will take care of you for 7 days, with no worries!

Papaya Wellness  also runs a variety of community projects that you can get involved in. They also have a regular yoga and fitness class schedule, so even if you don’t make a retreat, you can always surf and practice yoga in your own time!

 As far as we are concerned, these retreats are 10/10. The location, the incredibly delicious healthy meals and the wonderful team at Papaya Wellness, make these retreats extra special.

Whether you are looking to improve your surfing, your yoga practice or both, you will leave rejuvenated and feeling empowered.

Australia’s 8 Best Surf Spots

If you call Australia home and love to surf, my bet is that you have some opinion on what Australia’s best breaks are. Even those who have visited Aussie breaks will have their favourites…

Which is why I was intrigued when I found out that Australian Geographic has chosen the top 8. According to them the list is as follows:

1. North Coast – Angourie to Byron Bay, NSW Snapper Rocks, QLD

2. Noosa – Point Break, QLD

3. Snapper Rocks, QLD

4. Seal Rocks and Pacific Palms, NSW

5. Northern Beaches, NSW

6. Torquay – Bells Beach, VIC

7. Crescent Head, NSW

8. Margaret River – Yallingup and Prevelly Park, WA

As a local Victorian, I don’t feel like our incredible selection of cold water waves has been represented (but I’m probably biased). I’m interested to hear your view. What is your top 8?

Sail or Die

Our friend Vanessa at Sail or Die makes some delightful artwork. She combines beach themes, island totems, symbols, mexican skulls and bright colours to create her incredibly fun and individual paintings. She also has a pretty cool blog too.

Vanessa is a Melbourne artist who is planning to open her own brewery!

We hope you like Vanessa’s paintings as much as we do. Hopefully we’ll catch up with her soon for an interview and she can tell you all about these paintings! In the meantime you can check her art out on Facebook. 🙂
