The Beach and Surfing

Unmissable landscapes, Brittany’s beaches are among the most beautiful in Europe. They’re places where you can just relax, or enjoy sports and activities. Little coves and long stretches of fine sand or pebbles, the beaches are places to enjoy a real sense of freedom and they are open to everybody. They’re places to unwind and at the same time they’re natural adventure playgrounds for your children, with great accessibility and total safety.

Families will want to take full advantage of the wide open spaces, whilst taking their time over sandcastle contests, shell collecting, sunbathing, picnics and swimming. At the beach there’s something for everyone. Swimmers and families with young children especially like the quiet beaches of Le Guilvinec, Lesconil and Loctudy.

Nearby Keraluic lies Pointe de La Torche, or”Beg an Dorchenn” in the Bretons language. A defiant little headland, La Torche sticks out from the southern end of the wild Bay of Audierne, in southwest Finistère. Surfers love tackling the waves here, the waves can reach there an altitude of three meter.  Surfing, kite-surfing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, sand yachting, kayaking, catamaran sailing…La Torche is an absolute paradise for lovers of all types of water sports. The choice is virtually endless, thanks to the variety of different sites available.

Particular of the Torche is that there a current known as “l’ascenseur” (the lift). Using this current, surfers can move themselves over the breadth of the waves, without much of effort.

For those who want to start or want to take some extra lessons we can recommend RISE- UP-surfscool .

If you want to enjoy the beach in a different way, put on a pair of trainers and walk along the dunes trail along the famous customs trail GR34, voted France’s favourite long-distance hiking trail in 2018!

Due to the fact that Keraluic is only a few kilometres away from the coast, it is for the sport lovers among you an extremely suitable place to pitch your tents, literally and figuratively.
