Right and lefts. A better wave is located at the mouth of a small river (courant d'Huchet) where nice sand bars can lead to nice rights (100-150m). Beware of a strong lateral current when waves are higher than 2m+.
Ok, except in the summer. Many bodyboarders and tourists.
Quality strongly depends on sand bar development. Some years it can be a really nice barreling section, some years waves close out on the entire spot.

Moliets plage - Long ago I had a dream to surf the waves. Now at age 37 I finally did it. Moliets is a great beach to learn. On a low tide you can go a 150 meters into the sea and still stand up. I do have to mention that I'm 1.93 in height. Been their in august and yes their are a lot of people in the water. knocked over 2 swimmers. Sorry guys but 1- swimming was not allowed their, 2- It was the third time I was riding a wave, no way I was going to jump in the water.
