About Porzcarn

Just next to La Torche there’s an under-rated beachbreak and a righthand reef at high tide. Gets, hollow and wedgey, attracting more bodyboarders and the southern corner works on SW winds. The curve of the beach means NE is also ok and it is best around mid tide. The offshore big-wave reefs of Les Etocs can provide perfect 3-6m waves for daredevils only. Pors Carn is usually much quieter than La Torche, unless the swell is pumping, when more locals will be looking for the rare perfect days on the reef or in the protected southern corner.

All facilities in the car park.
