For surf experts, there is even a 'tube' wave near the fishing port town of Safi (50 km south), recognized by many as one of the best waves in Africa.
     
    Surfing provides many health benefits including cardiovascular fitness, shoulder and back strength and leg and core strength. Besides health benefits, surfing is also a great way to relieve stress and tension. Since the early 90s, a surf school is based all year in Oualidia and hotel guests are picked up from the hotel jetty.
     
    Their promise is to share a rich array of meaningful experiences in an exceptional natural landscape for individual and family adventures. Be ready to make the most of the great weather conditions to practice Surfing in the lagoon.

    Press Release

    The 25, a multi-award winning boutique B&B in Torquay, Devon celebrated being open two years with the launch of a specially commissioned video in front of the heads of local tourism associations, restaurants, attractions and media last night.

    Owners, Andy & Julian Banner-Price also exclusively announced yet more awards in the pipeline as they are finalists in South Devon’s Business Awards in the Leisure & Tourism category, and also the national AA award for Unique B&B of the Year. The event featured canapés specially chosen to showcase the local seafood available from nearby Brixham which has the largest seafood catch in monetary terms in the UK. Andy said “It’s important to us to use local suppliers where possible and our B&B guests are treated to many locally sourced and homemade items when they visit us”. Their new video was only just over ninety seconds long but packed a punch in terms of pace.  Julian commented, “We wanted an upbeat, fast moving video to sell the experience of staying at The 25 which can difficult to get across in words and photos alone.  We’re really pleased with the work that Pulse Studios who are based in Bristol and Plymouth produced for us.  We hope that when it is shared on our website and social media it will attract new guests to us and the English Riviera.”

    Since opening, The 25 has received many accolades and awards including a recent Travellers’ Choice Award from travel review website TripAdvisor, placing them as 9th Best B&B in the UK out of nearly thirty thousand other B&Bs. When asked, Andy said they put their success down to “always thinking what we would expect if we were paying guests, and using our OCD like tendencies to our advantage.” The winners of their two latest award nominations will be announced by the middle of May. Their new video can be viewed on their website at www.the25.uk


    Malta

    Malta is home to some of the world's oldest known Neolithic temples, and later this month, as Winter unfolds into Spring, Heritage Malta is set to organize unique guided tours in celebration of the Spring Equinox at the Mnajdra Temples.Located on the southern coast of our isle and just a 20-minute drive from Locanda La Gelsomina, the Mnajdra Temples are believe to have been constructed around 3600 years BC. During the Spring Equinox (20-21 March) the sun rises in line with the main doorway of the South Temple, passing through the central corridor to the innermost apse.Although there are no written records to indicate the purpose of these temples, recent research indicates that they were primarily a solar year calendar and an astronomical observatory.This is the perfect opportunity to book a suite at Locanda La Gelsomina and use the promotional code 'HIS' when booking direct to benefit from a unique package. Tickets to the Spring Equinox event may be purchased from Heritage Malta.
