The peninsula of Crozon is undoubtedly a paradise for sliding sports. Moreover, great champions are from, like the Belbeoc’h brothers.
Whether surfing, kitesurfing or windsurfing, the peninsula offers a wide variety of spots. It is also a place that has preserved an original aspect, with its wildlands covered with heather and its many cliffs. Between these cliffs, the three main spots are: the beach of Aber, La Palue and Goulien.
Here and down the beach at ‘Le Goulien’ are the area’s best south-westerly locations. The waves are biggest in Kersiguénou and south-westerly blows stronger and more steadily. Waves can break and reform twice on a big day, reaching some 5-6m on the outer sandbank. Biggest at high tide, if less powerful and smaller but steeper and faster at low tide. The current’s stronger than at its siblings too. All three reveal their quiet side in summer north-easterly thermals – relaxed sessions in small waves.
On arrival in Crozon, take direction Camaret then Kersiguénou beach on the left. You will reach the car park which is located in the middle of the dunes. There are two other car parks on the right and left of the spot. It is a sandy beach where the wave is relatively easy to access and forms a good springboard. The surf spot is located on the right of the beach, along the road that leads to Camaret. It is very accessible with a relatively soft wave.
This is probably the most famous spot on the peninsula, but also one of the most difficult to access. To get there, take the direction of the port of Morgat. Then on the right, at the bottom of the boulevard de la Plage, direction Treflez.
After a few kilometers, at an intersection on the right, a sign indicates “La Palue”. The path to the first car park is very narrow and passes between traditional stone houses. If you have a van or a motorhome, you will have to park there and walk the rest of the way (a height restriction prohibits passage to the lower car park).The second car park leads above the spot, but it is better to have an all terrain to go down.
La Palue is a wave spot par excellence, because there are almost always waves there. These are sand waves with peaks that move with the tides. Quite hollow especially in the east wind, the waves arrive at tuber.
As a playground, surfers will be spoiled for choice since the peninsula of Crozon offers a variety of spots that lend themselves perfectly to different disciplines. Five are available within a radius of a few kilometers around Morgat: the beach of Palue and its famous “beach breaks”, the handle of Dinan and its three spots (Goulien, Kersiguenou, Kerloch) usable by all directions of wind and Finally, the beach of Aber which is more rarely used but which is an excellent fallback spot in case of strong swell. In addition, at this time of year, conditions are often favorable.
So if you visit France this summer, Kersiguénou is a mandatory stop. Meanwhile, here you will feel the experience as if you were living it, do not miss this relaxing windurf video in Kersiguénou.
