Campsite near Surf Lacanau

Go surfing during your holiday at Les Grands Pins campsite

Lacanau, located on the Atlantic coast in southwestern France, is a world-famous surfing destination. Every year, surfers from the world over flock to this lovely seaside resort to enjoy the incredible waves and vibrant atmosphere that reigns on its beaches. Whether you’re a beginner or a more seasoned surfer, Lacanau delivers an amazing experience for all boardsports enthusiasts.

Lacanau’s beaches extend as far as the eye can see, and each spot has its own distinctive characteristics. First-time surfers will enjoy the calmer beaches that are less exposed to powerful waves, such as the central beach. Reputable surf schools offer courses to help you learn the basics and get to grips with surfing in complete safety.

Lacanau’s northern beaches are often a favourite among more accomplished surfers because the swell is more consistent, ideal for thrill-packed surfing sessions. The most famous spots include “Le Lion”, “La Nord”, or “La Sud”, where surfing conditions can be excellent all year round.
