Happy New Year

Esteiro is a top beach for surf lovers. In northwest Spain, the place gets amazing with sunset light, as the light hits the water in contrast with the dangerous rocks. The place is not very crowded as it is often windy and cold. That is the reason why surfers and local people love it, same as me.
