 Access

Halfway from Brest and Quimper cities, get into the Crozon peninsula and follow the main road (D8) toward Camaret city.
Once there, follow roadsigns toward "Pointe de Pen Hir". On your left, there will be a small road going down toward a beach called Veryac'h : get there and stop on the first parking lot in front of the sea : it's there, all for you !
Access is also possible by boat from wherever you want: pass between the Pen Hir and Tavelle points to get into Pen Hir cove but TAKE CARE when getting around the Pen Hir point: waves and fuçà$! strong currents are to be expected. The reef of "Basse de Dinan", offshore and unsignaled, could get you by surprise too... even on calm days. You're in Brittany here : not a place for lazy yachtsmen !

 Additional Information

This spot works only on the biggest swells because it is protected by the Pen Hir point.
Get there when everywhere else is out of control, which is winter, of course !
Luckily, the point also protects the spot from the big wind: that builds nice waves (around 2meters high, usually) with no or little wind.
But, indeed, because it needs a big swell to begin to break, watch for the occasional CLEAN UP SETS !

Atmosphere

Come here during or just after a big gale passed by: you could find nice waves to ride and, with an offshore North wind, some little tubes.
Check the right and left sides of the cove at low tide: there are rocks ! Getting out of the water before high tide is a good idea... because you can't even imagine the mess it becomes !
Usually unsurfed, the place is nice and gets real clean surf. Bringing a longboard could be a good idea.
TIP : you don't need to get to the beach to know if there's surf because with a good pair of binoculars you just have to check the enormous reef offshore ("Basse de Dinan"). If it gets full of whitewater more than once in a minute... Wow ! Pack the board and come.

General

Nice place with a beautiful landscape.
Thanks to the protection of Pen Hir point, the sea doesn't get too messy and the water is usually clear blue. The 50 meters of Pen Hir cliff dominate you like surfing close to a pyramid. Pretty impressive feeling !
Waves are clean most of the time and rarely above 1.5 or 2 meters, even if, as far as i'm concerned, i don't even know how much is the max size it can handle...
