Cannes Surf Guide

Cannes in Cote D'Azur is a fairly exposed beach break. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the east. Windswells are much more common than groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the south. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water.
