The place is a natural marvel, illuminating the surrounding cliffs with its clear blue waters.
You have to make the short walk from the car to the sea on a rock floor (a pair of booties would be a good idea -even in summer)then, do not paddle straight toward the foam but head alongside the rolling waves (as in any pointbreak). Currents are kind of poor but they will push you toward the peak, indeed.
If there's no swell, you can go on free diving, scuba diving or climbing the rocks of the Dinan castle, just a hundred meters away (Northward).
This climbing spot is a french reference.
In case of heavy swell : BEWARE and DO NOT APPROACH THE SEASHORE. Sneaker waves take away the local fisherman and the silly tourist as well and that happens several times a year.
Pretty cool as far as surfing is concerned, because the place is BEAUTIFUL !
Respect everyone and show a smile on your face : just as anybody else.
The surf gets good here because it needs to be bigger than on most other spots of the peninsula to just begin to break.
It can be surfed bigger than on most other spots, too.
But as you can see it when you're sitting on your board : this is SHALLOW WATERS !
A pure soul-surfing experience : if you enjoy hassling people, you can go somewhere else !
The spot of Dinan point is one of the longest waves in the Crozon peninsula and one of the best well-surfed.
