Top 10 Surf Spots

7. Hossegor France

Often referred to as the "surfing capital of Europe", with waves known to rival Hawaii (sans the coral), Hossegor offers a series of world-class beach breaks including Les Estagnots, Les Culs Nuls (“The Bare Bums”!) the mighty La Gravière (for tube-riding) and L’Epi Nord.

Hossegor is a part of the little town of Soorts, located only a short distance from neighbouring beach breaks in Capbreton and Seignosse such as La Piste and Bourdaines. As one of the premier surfing locations in Europe, Hossegor proudly hosts the Quiksilver Pro France contest every year in September.

Did you know...?
Hossegor is a great place to see ‘Pelote Basque’. Similar to squash (but a lot more dangerous!), opponents fire a hard ball at a high wall using a huge hooked glove, causing the ball to travel at incredible speeds.
