Brittany is home to many surf spots, such as La Torche, La Palue and Quiberon. The Crozon Peninsula is a perfect surf destination when there is not much swell in the Atlantic. When the waves are under 4 ft, La Palue is one of the only beaches that produces waves. Crozon is still a bit undiscovered by surfing tourism, while La Palue is an absolute world class beach break. Uncrowded, far from any surf camps or hostels, and beautiful surroundings. Here is FoamieCrews surf spot guide on La Palue.
