Surf spot of last resort

When it is to big and scary everywhere, come here on rising tide and stay throughout the hi tide. It is allwayc calm here, waves are gentle and views are amazing.

The wind and waves were great but the ankle deep spongy seaweed were quite off putting! As with many of the beaches there was a coastguard and a health centre close by which was a positive.

Parking opposite, clean sands and a pretty bay not far from the centre of Douarenez. Suspect it will be very popular in summer, but in April it was blissfully quiet.

The spacious plage of the Riz, the white sand, you can surf certain days, when the tide goes down you can go shell hunting for clams, fish sol while walking along the beach, your children are safe, is great.

Best time is in the mornings when the tide is out. You will have the beach to yourself with great views across to Douarnenez on a good day.
