Good Parking 50m from the beach for cars and Special parking for campervans.
At high/mid tide you can't see the rocks but you can feel them when you enter the water. At low tide it's rocks as far you can see.
Nice long rides and multiple take of points, enter the water near the old bunker and surf your way down, walk back and start again. Nice locals if you know the surf rules. There is a "boulangerie" near the parking who has a surf forcast on the door and sells pizza and chicken!
La Phare is a very nice spot,near a parking where you can sleep in your car or van. when it's high tide in La Terriere this is a good option.

Doggie Style - hoi Pepijn en Bo, geweldige foto's! Bij deze spot ga ik regelmatig met mijn hond wandelen, gewoon omdat ik niet kan surfen. A plus!
