Beneath the world-famous rock formation ‘l’Aiguille Creuse’ (the hollow needle), Etretat is a consistent mid tide peak that favours lefts. Best on wrapping SW swells, but also works on NE windchop. SW winds are cross-offshore and it maintains some shape even when onshores blow in.
Beware the shallow inside and fierce shore pound. Always crowded on weekends so a little localism is possible. Difficult parking. Webcam.
