this is a very nice mosque on the sea however the surrounding area should be fitted out and very dirty due to people's incivility ... moreover next to a mosque it is very shocking

Very beautiful, clean and the sounds of the waves remembering my country of origin. Walking in the cornisch road, not on week end it is full of people, but rather walk early in the morning for a jog or in late afternoon during sunset.
