Week crowdFew surfers
- Nudist colony (France only!)
Some very good surf here. Sometimes too crowded.
I never go there in summer or week-end. Typical Gironde beach-break.

Beginners' Summer/ Soul Surfers' Auntumn & Spring - Owing to the massive Camping just South of the main entrance towards the beach, Le Porge and the gentle/playful estival swells the spot receives, becomes a beginner's paradise (and conversely an experienced surfers nightmare) in Summer (late June - late August).
Confirmed surfers should rather aim for either fall (September - October/November) or spring (late March - early June) when the surf is either uncrowded or empty (provided you don't aim straight for the main break) and oftentimes pumping. Winters (November - March) are cold and most often windy/closed-out and should rather be spent (much) further South!
With the recently improved road this spot is probably the quickest to access from Bordeaux. So beware of the week-end crowds throughout the year... think "a stroll down the beach" - always worked for me back in the day ;)
