'Bout Monster and cool guys - just returned from a 3 day Roadtrip to North Brittany...'ve been to Le Chapelle as well... saw no sharks, but the rocks compared with the huge waves are really dangerous...take care ! real monsters !... The locals are sooooo friendly... respect them and they will help you anytime!

sharks - Only some blue sharks. But they won't hurt you.Rocks yes. If you are to late you're on the rocks. Go out when tide is high. Waves will break on the shore and going out is nasty shit .
