East Marseille’s premier spot holds long, wrapping, hollow righthanders over shallow rocks. Capable of holding the biggest SW swells and hidden from the tearing Mistral winds, the Cap is powerful at all sizes and moderately consistent from Oct - April. There can be some short, sucky lefts on the other side of the headland, exposed to the regular NW wind.
Constant, competitive crowds, urchins and occasional rips. The grande plage des Lecques may be a better option for average riders, longboards and SUP. Close to the harbour of Les Lecques; difficult parking.
