Le Niel Giens in Cote d'Azur is an exposed beach break that has unreliable waves. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the east northeast with some shelter here from north winds. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the best wave direction is from the southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Rocks are a hazard.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
