A Beach in Nouakchott

Nouakchott is the capital of Mauritania, situated at the western edge of the Sahara. Some kilometers away from its bustling center, a peaceful sandy beach faces the Atlantic Ocean. A man in pink takes a stroll on the beach. In the background, wooden boats are lined up waiting to go fishing. Fishery is one of the major industries in Mauritania, which is blessed with the richness of the Atlantic.
