Côte Sauvage Beach, Pointe-Noire, Congo
A long stretch of beautiful nature, Côte Sauvage is the jewel of Pointe-Noire. Good for surfing and long walks, it’s the perfect place to just sit and breathe. Local and modern international restaurants and bars are dotted along the road and vary in price. The best food served here is obviously seafood. The beach is regularly cleaned, so it’s always a pleasure to visit, however you should avoid going at night when it’s deserted and unlit. Sundays also tend to get very busy, but whatever the time and whatever the day, it’s always a good place to relax with a beer. It should be noted that the sea can be quite rough with very strong currents, so even if you’re strong swimmer be advised to stay close to the shore.
