Cap Sizun has some great surfing spots for all abilities.
"Baie des Trépassés" is an amazing spot at the end of the world at the feet of the famous Pointe du Raz. It has very reliable surf and is an amazing place to surf. This is where the local surf school ESB Audierne is based.
"St Tugen" is a beautiful beach break in the middle of the protected sand dunes of Trez Goarem.
"Gwendrez" near Plouhinec is also a very reliable spot.
The ESB Audierne gives lessons starting from 5 years old (Jardin des vagues) at the Baie des Trépassés and rents boards and wetsuits in season.
