Where is Nouadhibou Located?
Nouadhibou, the former Port Etienne, was founded in 1905. The second largest city in the country (72,337 inhabitants in 2000) is located on a peninsula at the northern end of the Bay of Levrier. Here is the end point of the 700 km long railway line, which brings the iron ore mined at Zouerat to shipping. The port is also important for the fishing industry.
What Country is Nouadhibou in?
Anyone who comes from Morocco for the first time to Mauritania may be shocked at first. The location of Dakhla and Nouadhibou is very similar to a beautiful promontory on the Atlantic ocean, but the city is very different. Nouadhibou consists almost only of simple flat houses and a real city center is not recognizable. It is best to set up the coordinates of Camping Baie de Levrier, which is quite right in the center. What immediately catches the eye are the many scrapping cars that still get it done to drive.
