One of the most wonderful spot in vendee. Not the best but the easier with 4-5 peaks simutanously along the beach (2km) moving with the tide. Very good spot to progress without localism. Caution: the spot doesn't accept on-shore wind! summer time: thermic wind from ocean begin at 11am. generally, water temperature is greater than the other place (+2/+3°).Cool spot if you want a cool day trip. Good access, soft wave. There is a special surf area on the beach so there is no problem with swimmer.
Take a meal, your surf and you will have a good day.
Touristic in summer, but just before en after the season, that's great and sometime you are alone in water with goods waves.
It's the spot where I began surf, it's a sentimental spot for me.

Some advice please - I am staying at Les Dunes campsite in late August and wanted to know how much it costs for surf lessons and board hire and if any place is recommended?
