Carne Beach in Wexford is a sheltered beach break. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest with some shelter here from south winds. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the ideal wave angle is from the south. Waves at the beach break both left and right. It's sometimes crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
