 Additional Information

This is a very special spot, because it breaks only 2 or 3 times per year at a good size. If you go there in winter, and if there is a good South Swell arriving, then you could have some incredible waves at Les Lecques's Beach. I've surfed this spot for ten years, and when the swell is BIG and oriented in the South direction, this spot is definitely unbelievable: I've seen there 5 meters's waves perfectly off-shore. But when the condition is like this be careful, currents are really strong and dangerous, never surf alone in this conditions at this spot ! Otherwise, you can also get some funny waves with all winds directions, except an East Wind that do not hit this spot, but nothing to compare with a serious South Swell. The city of Les Lecques is famous because there is the best mediterannean spot in this city : the Cap St Louis.

Atmosphere

General

If there is no wave, you can enjoy the very nice sandy beach, the very nice french top-less girls (in summer of course) and the nice green crystal water...

By passer-by...... , 09-12-2005

one interest.... - was passing by marseille on a trip to biaritz and heard about some swell in marseille this day.....after having seen a flat pardo and a shitty wave which was probably cassis or whatever, we get to a niec white sand beach, with like 50cm hardly on the set...the guy i was withwanted to go, but i showed him that further on the righ seem to have a wave like head high size....After some asks and some time looking for it, we finally found cap saint louis, which is a real wave...That was the only interest i found about this "plages des lecques" : made me find a good break for a nice unexpected session in medtirranean sea....
