Lonely Planet review
This Italian-run surf camp has long been a staple of Santa Catalina and its beachfront setting is one of the best. Bright multicolor cabins overlooking the black-sand beach have adequate facilities including hot showers and ample hammocks. The new star suite is a two-bedroom wooden house with a kitchen and great balcony views.
Breakfast and authentic Italian meals with fish, bruschetta and salads are served at the open-air restaurant. You can also rent a variety of surfboards (US$10 to US$15). It’s 2km from Santa Catalina’s main road, on Playa Estero near the mouth of the river. Closed October.
Our independent authors have visited Oasis Surf Camp and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in Santa Catalina.
