Pointe de la Torche, Plomeur
(4.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Just amazing and beautiful place for everything surfer passing in the area, with very nice waves, but not that, this place offers a lush nature with a walk around the edge or you can admire a local wildlife, as well as floral species in the middle of a few bunkers of war mondiale.un nice place to do for a bowl of oxygen...

  • The unmissable for fans of surfing, windsurfing, paddle, wind surfing and company. In fine weather, it is possible to see Raz laPointe. As it is a dangerous place (many noyes) should be very careful to venture on the rocks. Also note the commemorative stele of the resistance fighters shot by the Germans during the last war.

  • this corner is more to describe but to decry for the more experienced surfers. It's a spot of the busiest of the Bay of audierne with summer more 10 schools of surfing in activity... more room for free surfer. I advise you to get into the Bay if conditions permit. I practice for more than 35 years.
