Aktau or Aqtau in Caspian is a beach break. Works best in offshore winds from the east northeast. The short fetch makes for windswells rather than groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the southwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. The location means that it never gets crowded. Water quality is rather poor here.
