dont miss it - we surf calamar is not a easy spot to surf,if have more than six foot is very dangerous because it close out,the best direction to surf calamar the swell must be frome E.N.E.then you cant surf the best point on the right if the right is about seven foot no probleme to surf,if you are a good rider.

Calamar - Calamar is near "pointe aux piments" from "Trou aux biches" in direction of pointe aux piments, you have to follow the coast until you reach a long public beach with many trees, you have to follow it and at the end turn right just before the hotel, to get to the spot you have to go in front of the hotel and paddle to the waves... Its a nice spot for beginners because its powerless but fun...
