SUP Pilates in the Grotte de l’Autel Morgat.
As you know all too well by now, I love to try a bit of SUP Pilates in beautiful and unusual locations when I’m away on holiday. And although the photographs here are admittedly a little fuzzy due to the low light (apologies – we really should have taken a torch!), the stunning Grotte de l’Autel (Cave of the Altar) near Morgat, on the Crozon peninsula in Brittany, must rank as the most unusual of all!
The Grotte de l’Autel gets its name from an unusual rock formation – a flat plinth of rock that rises out of the water deep within the cave, and central to the cave entrance. The combination of rock’s shape and position (it looks like it was placed there specifically) really does give the impression of an altar. As one paddles into the cave, it certainly makes the hairs of the back of one’s neck stand up – it is both compelling and a little spooky!
And there is no way into this cave other than by paddle board or kayak – it is too far to swim to, and the entrance is too small for a boat – so it remains a quiet, untouched and pristine place.
The Grottes Marines de Morgat (Morgat sea caves) comprise a number of beautiful and exciting caves to explore, and none more so than the Grotte de l’Autel.
See you in classes.
