Surfing in Galicia
Galicia is located at the far west of the Atlantic coast of Spain and has a lot of surf spots facing multiple directions that can produce high quality waves. Another aspect of the area is the large swell window that can capture waves from W or even SW creating consistent surf conditions at any time of the year. Galicia is known for having low crowds even around the main coastal cities. The water can be a bit colder than the rest of the coast due to the proximity of the southward-flowing Canary Current that cools down the water but the quality of the waves and the low crowds compensates making Galicia a outstanding surf destination in Spain.
