 Access

Halfway from Brest and Quimper cities, get into the Crozon peninsula and head toward Camaret city (main roads D791; then D8). After having crossed Crozon city, be aware of a little left-turn to Kerseguennou hamlet. It is just before the road begins to go upward a small hill. Turn left at this roadsign and follow the road toward the beach. The surf spot of Kersiguennou is just down the 30 meters cliff, left and right of the rocky point. See spot of Goulien on this web site for boat access.

 Additional Information

The place is not very much surfed because your peers enjoy more the North spot of Kerloc'h (cleaner waves) or South spot of Goulien (bigger waves)... Indeed, this one is not bad and thanks to the rocks + sandbars you could have some really nice ones, especially on MODERATE SWELLS. Beware thought : ON GOOD SWELL, GO AWAY BEFORE HIGH TIDE ! You would have no more rideable waves and nothing but close out / crash your-face-on-the-cliff waves. Some dumb tourists occasionally get locked on the dry rocks because they did not got away early. They wait for someone seeing them from atop the cliff and calling the rescue helicopter. Well, this happens only on flat days... If this happens to you with a swell : PADDLE OFFSHORE and follow the current toward the beach, some 200 meters away. DO NOT try to pick up the eventual luggage you left on a cove !

General

Nice wave (sometimes) and very impressive landscape, with that huge cliff just in front of you. The nudist place on the beach is south of the rocky point : if you come with your family and kids, place your beach towels accordingly. During winter heavy rains get into the cliff and sometimes cause LANDSLIDES... if you surf and see some rocks falling down or if you hear a CCCCRUSH noise: PADDLE OFFSHORE !(Yeah, and this is not a joke)
