SURFING HOLIDAYS IN CANTABRIA, NORTHERN SPAIN
LOREDO AND SOMO, SANTANDER
Our base is the picturesque coastal village of Loredo in the Ribamontan al Mar area of Cantabria. The village lies across the bay from the historic and capital city of the region Santander. This area is blessed with miles of golden sandy beaches/coves and lies in the green foothills of the ‘Picos de Europa’ a towering mountain range that seems to sweep western Cantabria towards the sea. The water is clean and the atmosphere is great. This is the birthplace of Spanish Surfing and our established school is run by local surfer Mario and his father “Meco” a pioneer of surfing in Spain and a local legend.
Late spring, summer and autumn are ideal times to visit as the surf is consistent and the climate is pleasent, becoming warmer during the summer months. There’s plenty of breaks to suit all levels, the beaches tend to offer a good range of facilities for locals and tourists and the more you explore the thinner the crowds become! These factors combine to make Cantabria a perfect surf destination for all levels of surfers.
