Pointe de la Torche, Plomeur

4.7
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.

    What wonderful ride, on the one hand surfers taking advantage of beautiful waves, on the other a few fishermen balancing on the rocks, and these many birds on the beach watching the lost fish.

    The tip of the torch, place paradise to discover, that you're a fan of sliding or nature lovers... Off-season, it's even better!

    Beautiful! A must see! Be very careful: up there the wind blows, the trails are narrow and the cliffs to a dizzying height. No need to make the keke and risking his life and rescuers for a photo... The view of the ocean who moves a lot at this place - there is extraordinary.
