Are you looking for a surfing holiday away from the busy Cornish beaches? Camping de la Torche is the place for you. This French campsite has direct access through a footpath to the famous Pointe de la Torche beach (just 1.3 kilometres away), which is a real surfers' paradise!
On site, you will find excellent facilities such as a large heated swimming pool, an adventure playground with a huge inflatable giraffe and a multisport area, perfect for playing volleyball and football. Don't forget pétanque too, and challenge your tent neighbours in the pétanque court!
During the busy season (July and August) there are crêpe and barbecue nights, karaoke and discos, concerts, tournaments, bingo and much more!
Modern toilet blocks include disabled facilities and baby rooms.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
