Surf & Stay is made for surfers and sea lovers who look further than the waves. For lovers of freshly baked pastries, beachfront boutique hotels or dreamy camper spots. Dive into the seven regions in this book – Cornwall, West Flanders, South Brittany, La Côte Basque, Cantabria, Tenerife and Alentejo – and discover a mapped route for your salt-coloured holiday. Where to surf, eat and sleep.
This book also guides non-surfers. Surf & Stay is filled with salt & wonder; 256 pages of coastal culture. Veerle Helsen (40) is a travel and architecture journalist who collected four passions – surf, photography, food and design – in one book. For the first Surf & Stay – now sold out – she took a sabbatical in 2018 and travelled solo in a camper along the surf coasts of Spain and Portugal. After this sabbatical she quit her job and today she writes freelance for Belgian media and outdoor brands. This edition of Surf & Stay is her second book. She surfs around the world and lets the forecast decide her schedule.
