MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS



Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

As you walk onto the beach you can already see the break. Moliets plage has a river running into the sea which makes great banks left and right of the river, this makes Moliets the place where there are always a few waves to catch!

Next to the great beach of Moliets we also have the nice beaches of Hossegor which are known for their powerful and big waves.

Seasonal conditions

The weather is always nice in Moliets, in the morning the wind lies down so the camp heats up pretty fast but every afternoon the wind picks up for half an hour so everything can cool down. 

The waves at Moliets plage are very nice to learn how to surf or improve on your surf. The beach and sandbanks guarantee there is always a wave to surf no matter what your level is. 

Crowd factor and local people

As the beach goes on and on there is always room for more, directly in front of town it can be pretty busy but if you walk for one minute there is always a spot to lay down your towel and have the whole sea for yourself.
