Cargese in Corsica is an exposed reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer in particular tends to be flat. The best wind direction is from the northeast with some shelter here from northwest winds. Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the ideal wave direction is from the west southwest. There is no reef break. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
