From an eco-tourism persepctive its perfect, but I am not into it, so it was just sad: a few tents, no infrustruture of any kind, sort of restaurants..

“Lovely Beach”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Find the bar on the beach. It's probably the only place to buy a beer in Nouakchott, particularly after the most recent vice crackdowns in the city.

“The Jewel of Nouakchott”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

The beach and the dunes are the beauty of Nouakchott. The sand feels wonderful. Everyone's out there; Frenchies, other foreigners, Maurs in mulawfahs and bou-bous, Afro-Mauritanians. Only the foreigners seem to swim a lot, and friends have boogie boarded and gone para sailing. Mostly the Spanish. It's a beautiful place to just sit or read, have a bite and enjoy the day! Highly recommended - CAN'T miss it if you come to Mauritania!
