Prevelly is one of the world's greatest surfing destinations - the waves are big and the vibe is bigger. Drive around the coast and check out what local surfing championship is on that weekend.. odds are something is on, and if not, there’ll be plenty of surf dogs keen to give you pointers.

Bring your surfboard down and catch the waves. Beware: this place, and in particular, Surfer's Point, is not for beginners. The swell can get huge, depending on what the winds are like. This is a surfing destination on the world map, so you might run into some well-known faces. Real estate is at a premium; plan your trip well because you may not find a place to rent, and if you’re lucky to nab somewhere, it could get pretty expensive.
