Hi guys. I just finished my first Camino and I am now traveling to finisterre. I was wondering if anyone knows of surf equipment rental in the area. Google is trying to sell me packages so I know there's a beach . Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

There are two beaches at Finisterre. The inside beach, with the harbor, is in the pictures. Just behind the town, a short walk, is a beach on the open Atlantic, where there is good surf. Look for signs for Mar de Fora. This is a beautiful spot. This beach is not recommended for inexperienced swimmers.

When I was in A Coruña, the surf was definitely up. 30 minutes by train from Santiago.

And A Coruña is a great place to "de Camino" for a couple of days. Great beaches and restaurants, but for me the best was the fact that the city is on a small peninsula, and there is a walkway all around the city, going past such sights as the Tower of Hercules lighthouse, and a spherical glass elevator that takes you up/down the side of a hill with a beautiful park at the top.

I have to laugh, after walking the CF, I ended up in A Coruña. I asked at my hotel about how to get to the Tower and was told it was 4-5 km around the promenade. As I started out the door, the Valet insisted that he’d call a Taxi. After averaging 25km a day, 8km round trip was just funny, even in the rain and wind. To tie this all together, the storm that enveloped all of Galicia late last June was why the surf was up.
