The hidden gem near the Route des Pêches is this secluded retreat on the edge of the lagoon. Almost everything is made of local wood – the tables, the bar, the deck. You can swim in the shallow (but somewhat murky) waters of the lagoon, canoe and even sail or just relax in a hammock. Food is European in style but local in production. Bab's Dock is 11km from Cotonou.
