The Atlantic climate and fertile soil create a green Spain. With lush meadows and forests the coastline is known for its miles of sandy beaches and secluded coves.
Galicia beaches a range of waves, it’s arguably the best spot in the region a longboarder will find with perfect peelers.
Galicia is a powerful landscape in northwestern Spain – the last unspoilt part of Europe – located at the far end of the Pyrenees Peninsula. The combination of the dramatic landscape, 600 meters high cliffs that meet the Atlantic’s most pristine and best waves, charming little villages, a kitchen rich in seafood and long deserted beaches.
ACCOMMODATION – SURF LODGE
The Golmar lodge, recently ranked by the Sunday Times as one of Europe’s most beautiful summer villas. The lodge is located in a small village 200 meters above sea level with an amazingly beautiful view of green fields, Europe’s highest sea cliffs and azure sea. Rustic and powerful feeling combined with thoughtful comfort. Here you find lots of fun and humble midsummers.
Galicia is undoubtedly the place with the highest probability of waves in mainland Europe.
The remaining, untouched by mass tourism region in the immediate vicinity of the surf house, together with its miles of sandy beaches and coves, offers ideal conditions for surfing.
Most often we go to the fine scenic beach of Pantin. The surf is interspersed with feedback sessions, film & photo, and of course lovely hang up in the Trasmonte overview of the Atlantic. In other words, we brought in all kinds of wonderful ingredients and put them together, quite simply, our dream of a surf experience.
Galicia is famed for its abundance of fresh fish and seafood, the quality of meat from its lush inland pastures, and has a burgeoning reputation for excellent wines.
Get to know and taste some faboulous Galician wine, discover the local gastronomy with incredible sea food and see what the amazing coast in north west Spain is all about.
The wild coastline is frayed up and down its 1200km length by majestic rías (coastal inlets), and strung with cliffs, beaches, islands and fishing ports – The word seafood will have a whole new meaning after this trip, and you’ll be amazed with the quality and variety of the local foods and cuisine, not to mention the famous Albariño and Ribeiro wines!
