With its 2,700 km of coastline, Brittany offers a wide range of surf spots where you’ll find great waves in all weathers. Especially the long, quite hollow left-hander near La Torche headland in South Finistère: THE Breton beach break. At the foot of Quiberon‘s Wild Coast, in the Morbihan department, the swell is often powerful, with good barrelling waves in winter for experienced surfers. In Santec, North Finistère, Dossen beach is a big favourite with windsurfers. Whether you’re a fan of short boards, long boards, kitesurfing or paddle boarding… from north to south, there’s something for every ability.
Did you know that kitesurfing started in Douarnenez Bay in the 1980s. So you can’t argue with Brittany’s claim that it’s a top spot for boardsports! Surfing’s a lifestyle here – on and off the waves.
