Dangers & Annoyances

Tuléar is considered to be safe (although you should always take a taxi after dark), but there is one place to avoid: Batterie Beach. North of the city centre, Batterie Beach has been the scene of violent attacks on foreigners in recent years, and most foreign travel advisories and travel-insurance companies warn strongly against visiting. It lies beyond the city limits and there's little chance of wandering here by accident, but it's still worth knowing the name and steering clear of it.
