The lodge has swimming pool, sundecks, BBQs and everything you need to relax and unwind on your French holiday.
A really heavy, barrel with a thick lip just to the north of the Rock Food; it’s basically a serious shorebreak onto the beach.
When the swell is over 6 foot it breaks into deeper water straight out the front of the Rock Food. There is a channel to get you out the back, the waves are big and heavy and the hold-downs are sobering….these waves are for the intermediate to advanced surfer.
Located on the Hossegor side of the port. If the waves are huge, the only place to surf is in between the groynes at Capbreton, which is more suitable for beginners as it is sheltered from the big swells.
Les Culs Nus
Literally translated as bare bum beach, you’ll need to walk through the naturalists on the beach to get to some really good A-frame barrels.
France’s premier big wave reefbreak that holds serious size. It’s a 20-minute paddle out the back. It breaks in deep water onto a reef and is for experienced surfers only. It’s a powerful wave with a big ledgey take-off and a nice drop leading back to the channel but doesn’t get good until the waves hit 5 or 6 foot, however it holds up to a solid 15 ft. and bigger! Going left when it’s big will leave you in the impact zone and watch out for the currents. Be very respectful of this powerful wave and the locals will command respect too.
Rare pointbreak near the Spanish border. Attracta the crowds from far and wide, especially when the northern beaches in Hossegor are too big to surf. Depending on the swell direction, it’s usually a few feet smaller.
Another safe and fun wave, perfect for learners, rights and lefts break onto a sandy / rock bottom.
The ideal spot for beginners, it’s a big beach on the border of Spain where the waves are way less heavy than up north.
A stretch of coast that is interrupted by a series of jetties on the southern side of the beach offering protection from the wind. This area tends to close out when the swell gets bigger than a solid 6 – 8 foot.
