Just a beach, nothing special. On hot days even the ocean water is warm. DON'T go when it's dark, lot of criminals and prostitutes.

The Cote Sauvage is a lengthy beach, and a great spot to watch the sun set in the west into the South Atlantic ocean. Sizeable homes along the waterfront road including the Pointe Noire residential compound of the President. Restaurants and night life centred here.

Not a place to swim with the rip currents if you go too far in. Good place to people watch. Also a place to eat seafood. Avoid the crabs, especially the shelled ones.

I spent a day there with some friends, just for relaxing and swimming. If you're not a hotel guest, you will have to pay 10k CFA (which is 15€) for using the pool. Iasked for a towel and after some negotiations the towel was included...More
