Sun, sea, surf and yoga – what else could you possibly need for an idyllic Indian getaway?

At Soul & Surf you can surf, stretch and relax as a family. The surf and yoga combo is the brainchild of British couple Ed and Sofie Templeton, who love nothing more than welcoming families to the retreat.

Surf & Soul is located on the coast of south west India, just an hour’s drive from Trivandrum International airport and just outside of the town of Varkala. As well as a team of expert instructors, Soul & Surf boasts secluded beaches and tropical waters – perfect for beginners as well as seasoned surfers.
