Vauville has 16km of empty beaches that work on any swell coming from the W. From La Crecque right in the northern corner, through Vauville town and the scattered blockhouses of Biville, down to the dunes of Siouville there are plenty of walled up waves and feathering lips in the morning offshores. The best bet along this stretch of coast is Siouville, where the locals compare it to Les Landes when it’s grinding. Can handle a bit of S wind.

Plenty of good camping on the Contentin peninsula.
