Winter storms: a different face of the Mediterranean

The Mediterranean Sea is mostly a very calm sea, with average wave and swell heights rarely exceeding 1m.

Sometimes however, swells can grow to 2-3 meter, sometimes more!

Today there was a 2.5m easterly swell, really impressive. I went to Cap d’Antibes, on the easter side to take some pictures, and then on to the Esterel, near Trayas, als very exposed.
