Travel to Nouakchott

Nouakchott is the capital of Mauritania and is called the “place of the winds.” Until 1958, it was a small village along the coast that helped to support the local fishing industry. Over the years, as the deserts have creeped closer, more and more people have begun calling this deep-water port their home.

The fishing wharf and beaches are one of the main attractions of the city. You can even book accommodations at one of the seaside hotels if you prefer to stay outside of the city center. Fishing is still a strong industry in the city, but it takes an artisanal approach today. Using beautiful sea canoes, teams bring in the day’s catch and sell it immediately.

If you bring your own fishing equipment, surf-casting is also possible from the beaches of Nouakchott.

During the warm season, the beaches are the place to be. It’s the one spot where everyone can cool off after a long day in the sun. Swimming can be popular, but it can also be dangerous. Strong currents and tides are frequent, so check local conditions before venturing too far out.

The nightlife of Nouakchott can be greatly varied. In one part of the town, you might find an emphasis on hummus and hookah. In another, you might find fried chicken or burgers. Mauritania is a dry country, so alcohol can be difficult to find.

At the end of the day, you’ll be able to lie down, feeling good of the adventures you had. Then comes the best part. In the morning, you’ll be able to explore Nouakchott even more.
