Our surf camp for children is literally a few steps away from the beach and only 1 hour away from two famous airports. Santiago de Compostela and La Coruna International airports, both have very good connections and cheap flights from all over Europe due to the millions of people that come each year to pilgrimage “Camino de Santiago”.
