Ship Cemetery, Cansado Bay, Mauritania

Cansado Bay, 10km from the city centre is a must in the city. There are just a few interesting things to see here in Nouadhibou, so you have to come to this beach and enjoy the old boats. In terms of environment is obviously not correct but since the boats are already there just enjoy the dead and lost boats. Interesting to notice is that by the fat boats are there, a whole new Ocean Ecosystem was created and fishes make the boats their house.

    The ship on picture is portuguese, LX matriculation, owned and operated by former Companhia Portuguesa de Pescas, located at Ginjal,Lisbon, Portugal. Awsome spot. Amazing.

    Hey there! wow, thank you for the information. Didn’t notice, but yes, I should have 😉 since I’m Portuguese…and from Lisbon = LX and plus for the Portuguese cross on the front of the ship. Obrigado 😉

    Dear Michael Lewin,

    thank you for your message. Nouadhibou has a low criminal activity. Pay attention and all would be ok, no major problems or direct criminal activity.

    this area of nouadhibou can be easily visited, you can just take a taxi to nouadhibou port, jump out and walk all the beach until you reach Cansado settlement. you have dozens of ships on that beach.

    i have uploaded some videos of this beach on my youtube account. if you’re interested you can visit this other website of mine with the videos, hope you like it:
