Location

It’s a place to live in direct contact with nature. It's a paradise where you can surf in addition to sightseeing, enjoying nature, gastronomy, other sports, relaxing and exploring nearby villages. Oyambre was declared a natural park in 1988 for its great ecological value, beauty, and condition. There is a variety of fauna and flora, both terrestrial and marine ecosystems and different dunes, beaches, marshes, cliffs, and forests.

Waves

From Oyambre Surf School's privileged position, they always look for the best waves depending on the sea conditions, the weather, and the level of their students. They usually surf on the beaches of Oyambre and San Vicente de la Barquera (Merón), but don’t discount surprise trips to other lesser known surf spots.

Oyambre Beach consists of 2.5 kilometers of white sand with northeast orientation. Merón Beach or San Vicente de la Barquera has three kilometers of white sand facing northwest. Both beaches are very exposed to waves and have a small difference in orientation that ensures waves all year. If there are no waves here, there won’t be any waves on any beach in northern Spain or Europe.
