The town of Eggumsveien to the east of Eggum Beach will serve as base town. Eggum Beach offers westerly facing coarse pebble with deeper offshore banks. It provides a big swell which makes an ideal impact but fails as a beachbreak as the waves are mellower. It is a great place to ease into surfing where the wave is predominately left. However good it looks, be cautious as coming into a face full of gravel in freezing water is not a great idea.
