About Ciboure Socoa

When it gets huge, several spots work inside the bay from the harbour mouth back round to the town beach. A soft peak breaks in the shadow of the Socoa Fort and is offshore in a westerly, as is the rare bodyboarding shoredump at La Bougie. In Ciboure, near the entrance of the river Nivelle is a hard to access, localised reef called Le Port that may work a handful of times a year. Breaks close to the rocks and water quality is dubious. Always a few waves, regardless of how strong the wind or swell gets, but remember a 5m swell may only reach 50cms on the west side, depending on swell direction.

Further downsides include low consistency, always crowded, some localism and roadside meters.
