The Surf House As Furnas is located in the northern Spanish region of Galicia, in the small village of Xuño, on the western Atlantic coast.
The Atlantic climate and fertile soil create a green Spain, with lush meadows and forests, and the coastline is known for its miles of sandy beaches and secluded coves.
The good Galician cousine is one of its tourist pillars. The excellent quality and variety of local products serve as a basis for diverse delicacies and dishes. The people are friendly and the area around the Surf House is completely untouched by mass tourism.
The place Xuño, with its nearly 1,000 inhabitants, is located midway between the Atlantic and the mountain range of Barbanza, just a 5 minutes walk to the two beaches As Furnas and Rio Sieira.
The Surf House is located in the hills at the foot of the mountain A Curota, which offers a variety of routes for both cycling and hiking. The view from the top is unique, ranging from the islands of Cies up to Finisterre, also known as the end of the world.
For taking a walk along the sea, the 4 kilometers long wooden walkway starting in Xuño offers a perfect opportunity. It runs from the beaches of Rio Sieira and As Furnas up to two lagoons, which are separated by a narrow belt of dunes.
In addition to the ideal conditions for surfing, the area around the Surf House also offers a wide range of activities and excursions.
Whether you choose beach volleyball, fishing, snorkeling, rock climbing, horse riding, scuba diving or sailing with a partner in the area, you’ll definitely find something to suit your taste.
But if sport alone is not enough for you, there is a number of interesting destinations, ranging from the impressive Celtic settlement in the neighbourhood of Castro de Baroña, the Galician capital Santiago de Compostela, to fishing villages and their charming ports such as Rianxo and Pobra do Caramiñal.
