Surfing Information: The apartment is close to excellent surfing beaches. Spring and Autumn are best due to consistent swell and good weather. Water temperatures are pleasant although a wetsuit is recommended.
The nearest beach is San Antolin, 5 minutes away. The beach has excellent waves, which break next to the picturesque natural archway. It has waves on all tides but is better from mid to high tide. There is parking on the beach and on the road above. Playa Torimbia is another good beach, 7 mins away, although a long walk is needed to get down.
Ribadasella is a popular surfing beach 20 mins away with consistent waves that are best on a high tide. It is safe, sandy and suitable for beginners.
The best surfing break in the area is Rodiles, about 30 minutes drive, a large sandy beach with numerous waves but the jewel in the crown is the world class lefthander which breaks in front of the river mouth, this wave is more suited to experienced surfers due to the nature of the rip currents from the estuary.
