It's difficult to park your car! The wave doesn't work often. It's better during autumn and winter. Be careful: the water may be cold.
locals coul be really agressive ! don't be impress by trash talking...
It's one of the most beautiful landscape in France. This spot is often
seen in french surf magazines.

Etretat on sunday - Hello, Me and a couple of friends are gonna go to Etretat this Sunday, because we think it will be good ( small but good). Does Etretat only work on low tide, or also with mid tide?Greets Swimfinn
