The biggest allure is its beaches warm water throughout multiple seasons.

What Makes Surfing in Hossegor so unique?
Running about 3m long, Hossegor's beaches deliver mighty, perfect peaks, often hollow and consistent. There are four distinctive surf spots along the shoreline, including Les Culs Nus, La Sud, La Nord, and La Graviere. For novice-level surfers, we would recommend checking out La Sud as it is the most beginner-friendly spot with calmer waves. For those who are looking for a challenge, La Graviere's massive tubes spot will satisfy expert surfers. Hossegor is one of France's most consistent surf spots, so you'll catch a wave here throughout the different seasons and various sections of the beach. Locals and travelers alike come to take on the waves and watch the Pro Surf competition in October.
When is the best time to SURF Hossegor?
When it comes to the best time to visit Hossegor, it depends on your taste and desires. The water is at its warmest in July and August, so you can expect plenty of other water enthusiasts to want to ride the waves as well. September and October is a great time to visit with the water still being warm and the scene getting set up for the Quiksilver Pro Surf Competition. During these two months the waves pick up, and the tourists have left as well, so it's not as crowded. For those looking for stronger waves to ride, November - April is the ideal time to visit the Hossegor. If you're looking for calmer swells with a bit of a push, then April and May is the best time.
