Le Havre Beach in Normandyis a beach and reef break that has inconsistent surf. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the west northwest. The beach break offers mainly left hand waves. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of Man-made danger (buoys etc..) and pollution.
