Some of us old and others are new, this body of staff here at the beach has come together with the same goal and that’s to work a lifestyle they love. We are like the friends you meet at the hostel who just got there before you and know all the secrets to the spot. We love our Job and that reflects in our service. We truly all become friend when we catch waves together, eat and drink together and share a perfect sunset that turns our dream´s eye into a waking reality together. The team we’ve put together at Gigante Bay consists of some of the coastlines oldest fisherman and surfers to ensure your ocean experience is the best possible. Our kitchen, bar and hostel staff have been with us for years and without English, can tell you the specials that make us special. We belong here because we care. We watched this town grow wings and now it’s time to fly. Gaze from above on your adventures here with us to help give you the perspective of self that lets the sunlight in and the rush to leave out. Work with us to relax or rev it up because our work defines our purpose.

"Its been a fantastic experience and journey with you all. You have all become brothers and sisters. I can not wait to see you all again."
“There were kids skating the half pipe and I was right on the beach. I liked the music too. The best was the menu. It was different then anything else on the beach.” (All said in his Irish accent)
Everything here is unspoiled, beginning with the trees and the beach all the way to the people, the staff....f the ocean.... Everyone was nice, sincere and easy going. Surf lessons were smooth fun and friendly. What started as a programed stop became the place where I will be coming back in a couple of months. That was not programmed!!
From the first time I came here I knew I wasin trouble!! Every single person was genuinely friendly. Everything was beautiful and next thing I knew I was hooked. Have been coming back ever since and guess what, it only gets better! up to the point that now I only find one problem with Gigante Bay....that is my own inability to find the strength to leave everytime I´m here.

The smell from the kitchen was a fantastic preview into the nights delicious food. When the power went out well after ten the drinks and conversation just got better, then the lights came back and it all continued. The glow of the music bridged any cultural gaps and we drank as one.
