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..)
Beautiful beach but you can also see the nuclear plant...

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