Oasis Surf Camp is location right on Playa Estero in Santa Catalina, just a 20 minute walk out of town. Be warned that if you're walking to Oasis at high tide, access by the main road is basically cut off unless you're prepared to wade through waist high water. The rooms are clean and pleasant, although a little pricey for a backpacking budget. The owner is nice, although I barely saw him during my 5 night stay, but be warned that the hospitality of the restaurant staff is lacking. The surf teacher, Rocco is very nice, a great teacher and is always around to cater to the needs of guests. The beach break on Playa Estero is great for beginners, and there's a point break nearby for the more advanced. Overall, I recommend Oasis primarily for the location - walk for 30 seconds and you're in the water, and the resort itself doesn't disappoint.
