Hossegor, France

A year-round playground for both seasoned surfers and budding shredders. It’s no wonder this seaside town in southwestern France is known as Europe’s surf capital. Expect pine-backed beaches, creative foodie spots and a pumping après-surf scene.


Hossegor is a real swell magnet: west-facing into the Bay of Biscay, where a deep underwater trench catches the Atlantic rollers, which means there are rideable waves almost every day of the year. From epic a-frames and barrelling sandbar breaks to secret spots up the coast in Seignosse, there’s something for everyone. Pros head to the hollow and heavy-lipped pits at world-famous La Graviere, while beginners and softer peaks and slower take-offs at sheltered La Sud. The water temperature will vary depending on what time of year you visit. Expect large summer crowds when the water is warmer and you won’t need as much coverage. After October you’ll want to pack a Imok Full Wetsuit or the PM Wetsuit Pant.

Les Hortensias du Lac

Landes-style interiors meet mid-century Hamptons chic at this petite lakeside hotel. Drift between the light-flooded suites and parasol-shaded infinity pool before sunny meals at the family-friendly restaurant overlooking the lake. Soothe surf-sore muscles at the spa (complete with whirlpools, saunas, a hammam and Nordic bath) or join a morning yoga class at the water’s edge. Make transiting through the hotel amenities easier with mix and match ensembles. We recommend the Ultra Light Short or Track Shorts.

Le Papa Perché

The cool kids flock to this beachside bistro in Capbreton for the best sunset scene. The seasonal menu uses fresh ingredients from the farms and fields of Les Landes and the Basque Country. Saint-Jean-de-Luz merlu and salty oysters from the lake are served with a crisp cold glass of wine to diners watching the last waves of the day. Stop by after a long day at the beach. Pair a Starlight Skirt over your surf ensemble for a polished look.
