About Lagouira

Mauritania operate the east/west military border crossing 10km (6mi) north of the peninsula and Nouadhibou, which is shown on most maps as running north/south. Obtaining a visa in advance is essential in order to surf the spots in the abandoned ghost town of Lagouira. There are several right points between Faux Cap Blanc and Cap Dubouchage when small, or go further south when the swell gets over 4ft (1.2m). On a proper swell, these rights can be long, fast and flawless.
