There are several spots on the island.
The island is small, wild and strange. People are friendly but they may will not understand that you can surf. It's one of the most dangerous area for boats in the wolrd. People used to say : "Who saw Sein, saw its End". Good Surf !

Access to Sein island - You can board the boat at Audierne city to go to Sein island (check the spot of Lervily for more info, on this web site).In summer you can board island-to-island (Molène, Ouessant and Sein islands) boats : this is a very beatiful way to discover what is offshore Brittany, continental Europe's most western lands. This is also a good way to check the reefs for winter sessions...
