Visitor Reviews of Anse de Cabestan
“This spot named here as Anse de Cabestan is if I follow the map the Bay of Le Loch. The Anse de Cabestan is the same spot Location known as St. Tugen/Trez ar Goarem. Don't know who rated Anse de Cabestan/ Le Loch, but I like to mention that I am living since 4 years a 2 min walk away of this beach and I had max 5 sessions! Le Loch needs very big swell before it is surfable. Reasons are several reefs and a long jetty which shelters the bay. Main spot is a beach in the center of the bay but related to the tide and the shape of the seabed the window for good surf conditions is short - about an hour. Best is 1,5 hs before and after hig tide. On the western coast of Le Loch bay there are two more reefbreaks wich are much more consistent than the main beach. Both reefs are producing righthanders the inner reef is a good idea when the break is everywhere around too big. This break is also good sheltered against westerly winds. The outer reef produces good and steep righthanders but it is a lon walk with a final rockclimb to enter the spot. This spot is affected by west winds.
It is never crowded there, and the biggest number of surfers I saw in the last four years were five people! It is not reliable, the working conditions for this spot are very rare - when it works the timewindow is limited. Best spot is the inner reef.”
