Galicia is a mountainous region of Spain with a rugged coastline combining high cliffs(some of the highest in Europe) with beautiful sand beaches. Away from the few populated areas you will find stretches of beach all to yourself, even in summer. Most breaks are beach/point breaks with a few reefs located in the N of Galicia and a good spot, Patos(close to Playa America) in the SW. It can get suprisingly busy in the summer at the most famous spots but exploration will pay off whatever time of year. Climate is mild in Winter when the you can surf the best waves. A problem on the Galician coast is finding breaks small enough to surf in the winter season. When big, the Pontevedra region has good breaks to discover.
