 Access

From the coastal city of Brest, take direction "Le Conquet" (road D789). Once you're in approach, make sure you take right at the last crossroads before entering Le Conquet city. From there, follow direction "Blancs Sablons" beach.
When you see parking lots on your right and a camping on left, go straight and stop at the last parking lot on the right (the one with a gravel floor, after the road turned on the right).
Stop, walk 50 meters seaward and it's there : a big cove facing the North West with Ouessant and Molène islands just offshore.

 Additional Information

Nice place to go for a walk on sundays...you can surf it with a big W swell (NW 3 meters at least, or W / SW 4 meters +) with an offshore wind and high or rising tide.
It breaks mostly in winter where everywhere else begins to close out. In fact : the bigger it is with a E or SW wind, come check here !
The place is pretty safe, even for beginners and even during gales. If you see the waves are better on the right and on the left side of the cove (close to the cliff) DO NOT surf the left side : there's rocks!
The right side is safer but watch the rocks indeed.
The parking lot described is where you should go on winter because you've less chances to get your car robbed, as in the "grass floored" ones. I know, it happened to me.
You can also come by boat, from the Brest harbour or else : have a seamap with you because of man made dangers around (fishing nets and buoys + forbidden places to anchor).
If you anchor, DO KEEP a pilot in the boat : clean-up sets are not only for surfers...

Atmosphere

Pretty uncrowded most of the time, the place is not considered as a radical spot.
Hey ! That's good : it makes only more place for all.
Fun waves with some clean-up sets (it only breaks on biggests swells around, remember).
DO NOT SURF AT LOW TIDE. Strong currents and hell of a killing shorebreak, anytime.
If you happen to see a big black ship anchored offshore the Blancs Sablons cove (with two big lights in the back) you can be sure there's going to be a big gale...it is the towing ship "Abeille Flandre" patrolling as soon as the wind is forecasted to get 7 Beaufort or more.

General

Mellow and relaxing. Come here with friends just to get wet on fun waves but not necessarily tubing-little-bombs.
Don't be afraid to draft a lot if there is strong wind : come ashore and walk back.

BONUS : after your session or with your family after a walk, take the car back, direction city center of Le Conquet.
Once there, look for the harbour and a restaurant called "the restaurant of Sainte Barbe point"; get there, sit at a table facing the ocean and have a hot chocolate.
Wonderful !
