Pors Carn Beach
Located on the Southern part of the point of La Torche, Pors Carn bay is the ideal spot for surfing. It’s half moon shape lets the swell enter in a very particular way.
On the Northern part, the waves are bigger and more powerful. The further South the waves get smaller yet still powerful, which allow all kinds of surfers to find the types of waves they are looking for.
As it is set up, the beach is also sheltered from the wind coming from various directions depending on where you are on the beach.
The waves on the South end are perfect for beginners. More advanced surfers will love the high tide bowls in the middle of the beach.
You will practice surfing in the nicest landscape with crystal-clear water. The beach is protected by several laws so it’s preserved and wild: there are no buildings or waste. There are also less surfers. This allows you to get more waves and it allows us to assure your safety.
