 Additional Information

Nice spot, with a wide beach, never ever crowded. Conditions are best at an hour or two before and after hight tide.
The best thing is that there is a camping AT the beach. Get up early and catch the first waves!
The camping is really cheap, 7 euro a night for two adults and a car. Next to the camping there's a parking.

Atmosphere

The spot is sweet, you can hear the surf all night long. Get up early, stick your head out of the tent and check the surf. If it's good, be the first (and only one) to catch a wave.
At night you can make a nice campfire on the pebbles/rocks. Allthough the area is rather rainy, Vauville (and whole local west coast) seems to be very dry. Rain falls in the inlands, the beach stays dry an sunny :)

General

I haven't checked the spot in it's best season (september-december) yet. But it looks promising.
Vauville is quite remote, from Paris it's a 6 hours drive...
