Cargese Surf Guide

Cargese in Corsica is an exposed reef break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast with some shelter here from northwest winds. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the ideal wave angle is from the west southwest. No reef break here. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Take care to avoid the rocks.
