Mauritania is a country of great contrast, between the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Sahara desert on the other. From the soaring temperatures during the day to the sometimes negative ones in the early morning. The empty roads also in sharp contrast with the sprawls and heavy congestion of Nouadhibou and Nouakchott. Although 100% Muslim the kids of Mauritania are as open and friendly towards the photographer as anywhere that I've been on the continent.
Whether you're in Nouakchott or further up the coast in the Banc d'Arguin national park you can't fail to catch some fabulous sunsets over the Atlantic.
Not a great deal to be seen unless you venture into the Banc d'Arguin apart from the customary dromedaries.
I couldn't really recommend this place to anyone, but the trouble is there's nothing else for a couple of hundred kms.... more travel advice
This is the 2nd time I've been down to the beach in the late afternoon, and it's still fascinating. more travel advice
