L'Arquet in Cote d'Azur is a reasonably exposed reef break that does not work very often. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the north. Usually gets local windswells, but groundswells do happen and the ideal wave angle is from the west southwest. No reef break here. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Likely to be crowded if working. Beware of rocks, crowds, localism, steep faces, rocks, urchins, cliff.
