Not far from Saint-Malo, Cap Fréhel is a highlight even if you’re not a surfer. Often overlooked within the southern surfing spots, this area of Brittany is a windswept yet magical spot for hitting the water. Pléhérel beach is the place to start and then just continue on down south to a couple of other sweet spots.
