Beaches, a fishing dock, and two coastal hotels are located five kilometers west of urban Nouakchott.

For a personal glimpse at Mauritania’s artisanal fishing sector, visit the crowded fishing dock ‘port de peche.’ On brilliantly painted sea-canoes, teams of fisherman haul in the day’s catch in the evenings. The catch is sold at the sport and placed into donkey carts or old Renault 12s to be resold in town.

On weekends, the Nouakchottois visit the beaches (especially in the hot season). Swimming in the water in Nouakchott may be hazardous due to the treacherous and powerful current.
