The Piege à Sable (literally the sand trap) aka Le Phare, is a left sand pointbreak and the place to be on big SW swells. Waves are hollow and fast, offering great rides, but there are heaps of currents. There is another section way inside when huge.

Overland access is through a military zone, which might take a while even if you know the right people, so getting there by small boat or jet ski is preferable.
