Shorebreak hostel is not recommended for people with mobility concerns. You will need to go down the same stairway if you want to visit the shore, which is located at the opposite side of the road as this hostel is not located beside the shore.

You will have to cross the street and walk along a path, climb down yet another short but steep stairway before you can get to the shore.

For guests with mobility concerns, we suggest booking somewhere else right beside the shore.


After a tiring day at the beach, slow down and chill at their rooftop.
