These three beaches are facing due west. There are most of the best rolls of Crozon time.

The beaches of La Palue and Lostmarc’h are located on the Cap de la Chèvre. In high season, it is quite difficult to find a place to park his vehicle. The main car park is located outside the village of La Palue. It is also possible to get off his vehicle along the beach by a stony road in very bad condition (option to book the surfers down their equipment). The parking lot outside the village of Lostmarc’h offer little more than a dozen places. Needless to venture in season.
