I have visited this place a few times now and its a nice place that seems to be neglected. Not much choice of places to eat. Nice view and scenery of the sea and that is it. The beach is very busy with the locals and if you are not one you may not like participating. Shame that this place... More

This is a port on the northern tip of Algiers, Algeria’s capital, was the landing spot of the French invasion. Today, it’s a bustling part of town where visitors can admire ships and the surrounding Algerian Sea while browsing local shops and cafes.

Busy at the weekends but worth a visit. Go early if you want to avoid the traffic. Unfortunately a big fire occurred last week and many boats set on fire from an electrical fault. The new tower blocks of apartments now are in full flow. This will attract money to the location as a residential place to live - they... More

An old fishing harbour that worth the visit for its unique architecture. the beach is no so nice and it's not worth the dive, but the surroundings are great and you can even find nice places to eat a nice fresh fish meal.

We took the bus from Algiers to visit Le Port de Sidi Fredj and ended up in front of a Soviet era hotel complex. My friend who is Algerian and I both had high expectations because we'd read such good revues. We wandered through the hotel and what we saw was less than one star. Dilapidated with a public washroom... More

It just a port. There's absolutely nothing special about it. There was only one building that caught my attention- old traditional build. Most of the restaurants were closed. We were there altogether Maybe 15 min. Nothing to see.

We might have picked a bad time for our recent visit to Sidi Fredj because stores and restaurants in the port area were mostly closed on the day before a holiday weekend (Eid al-Adha). Still, it was a pleasant if a bit lonely late morning stroll down to the harbor and Mediterranean. Had the shops been open, Sidi Fredj would... More

This is one of the most beautiful locations to visit just outside the main city. It caters to tourists and families looking for a break from the city. Well-kept with activities and food nearby, this a good place for a break.

Nice place to spend a couple hours. Plenty if parking and some good little restaurants around and a nice walk on the docks. Traffic can be tough getting in and out depending on the time of day.
