Landmark Tourist Spot
Pointe de la Torche is a promontory located at the southeastern end of the Baie d'Audierne in the commune of Plomeur in the Bigouden region of Finistère, France. It is an officially recognised natural site and at the top of the promontory is a prehistoric settlement and burial site that is registered as a historic monument.GeographyPointe de la Torche is a rocky granite outcropping; one prominent boulder near the end is called le rocher du corbeau . Northwards from the promontory, the beach of the community of Tréguennec extends for several kilometres around the Baie d'Audierne to Plozevet. Southwest of the promontory is the beach of Pors-Carn, which extends as far as the village of Saint-Guénolé. The point has been an officially recognised natural site since 1965.During the current geologic era, the Quaternary, the promontory has at times been surrounded by dunes and been an island. Protective barriers have been installed to prevent its being cut off again by the sea, which would otherwise have happened. The surf and currents sometimes make the sea around it very dangerous.

  • Originally in stay surfing where the landscape is not necessarily the priority, the tip is still superb. Between beaches and waves crashing against the rocks, you take full eyes!
