 Additional Information

Nice waves, but not in the summer. Maybe if you're lucky you'll have a 4 footer in summer. In the other seasons the waves can go up to 12 feet. If you plan to surf near Le Pou watch out for the rocks! It's better to surf a bit away from Le Pou. There are loads of spots along the sandy beach.

Atmosphere

Very few people here, only crowded in the summer or sunny weekends. But the crowd only stays near the baywatch, so the rest of the sea is for the surfers!

Lucky Days? - Last week we had SW 1.5 meter swell with often offshore wind. Nice hollow waves 2 ours before and after high tide.Beautifull clean area, a few surfers, and nice camping 100 meters from sea.

More than one star definitively - I was there last week-end: cleaner, but smaller wave than at the Rozel. I guess the cliff at the north of the beach protects and funnels southwest winds into offshores.Have to come back with bigger swell and higher temperature.

- I'm agree wuth you Julien! This spot is very bad. to go to Siouville is the best thing to do. This wave doesn't work, just in winter with 4m of waves. So forget this!
