Center Information

The FBC Gran Canaria center is located amidst palm trees on the beach premises of the Orquidea Hotel. In Bahia Feliz, locals and tourists live close together, creating a very special atmosphere. Bahia Feliz offers very relaxing holidays, and after a good surf session you can enjoy a little snack or a cold beer at the beach bar directly next to the surf center. After a great surfing day why not also spend your evening in one of the small restaurants or local bars.

Best Travel Period – October until May (directly at the center). However, the summer is also good for all levels with the most advanced riders joining our excursions, so you can actually stay all year long !
