It might not be cheap, but it will really get you hooked on surfing and want to re-visit this wonderful spot and continue the sport.
#2 Hossegor, France
Who said the Old World couldn´t offer some of the greatest waves in the world? Well, it seems the old continent still offers way more than meets the eye to adventurers. While Paris is and will remain the country´s most visited city, the coasts are getting more attention than ever. Europe´s exclusive beaches are luxurious and often very well maintained. No surprises in France either, this surfing paradise offers some of the greatest waves in the world. They are hit with a continuous tide that surfers can only dream off. The main attraction is the performance of the professional surfers riding in the majestic waves, but there´s also a quieter spot down the south for beginners. Not to be overlooked, the water temperature is among the warmest in the Atlantic Ocean.
