 Additional Information

Very popular beach in the area of Cherbourg. You'll find a lot of peaks. When the wind is South: it's the only beach that works well.
Works more or less at each tide and each wind... Very large beach, there are a lot of people but a lot of peaks too so it's OK.
This wave works very often but the quality is quite bad in general... (close..)

Not so bad - It seem pretty ugly but, despite the cross shore wind, it was surfable. I got fun waves even if it was not incredible. Surf with manu jean.

I am back home and it's good... Of course I know I won't have a lot a waves because of the summer. And I miss a good session the day before I come here. As I don't come back very often, I realize how beautiful the coastline is here.

Yes ! - Yes, there are waves but powerless and not often. Bring a board: you may have luck though
