Get there
Where are you exactly?

We´re overlooking the 3,5km bay of Valdoviño in beautiful Galicia. You can do your wavecheck right out of your window. A 10min walkway will guide you to the beach.

Which airport should I fly to?

There are three main airports we recommend. A Coruña and Santiago de Compostela are both 1 hour drive distance. Porto in Portugal is 3 hours drive away, but flights and rental cars are cheapest there. And Porto is a lovely city to explore. Also Oviedo in Asturias is a possibility, 2 hrs drive away.

How do I get from the airport to o soño?

We highly recommend to rent a car, because of the many bays around to surf or beautiful places to hike and also connections are still not the best.

If you don´t wanna do that, you can get a Transfer with Uber Taxi or Get Transfer App:

We can also organize it for you, costs are around 120 €/ Transfer.

Cheaper option is to travel by bus:

From Airport A Coruña or Santiago de Compostela to Ferrol:

Monbus is connecting you to Ferrol. different times a day.
From Ferrol you have to take a Taxi/ Uber or we can arrange a Pick up.

From Airport in Porto to Ferrol:

We would recommend to rent a car and take a little sightseeing in Porto (J.K. Rowling got inspired here for her Harry Potter books, you will feel the spirit) before getting on the 3 hours drive to us.

A Flix Bus is also running from Porto to Ferrol.

From Ferrol you have to take a Taxi/ Uber or we can arrange a Pick up.

Yes! We enjoy surfing with a 4/3mm wetsuit. In winter times also shoes and cloves will also keep you warm. We rent wetsuits for a small fee, please ask us before your arrival.
