I am looking for a dataset that contains the locations and names of beaches on the African coast and Mauritius. I have found some government data portals, but i am having trouble finding locations and names. Does anyone know where i can locate such data?

  • Have you tried geonames.org or openstreetmaps.org? – Barry Carter Sep 15 '18 at 14:51
  • I have used used both, there is unfortunately still a significant gap that i am trying to close. – Danie Jooste Sep 17 '18 at 8:45
  • Dumb sounding question: are there any specific beaches you know exist but aren't listed in any of the sources you tried? Could you google those names and see if there's another list somewhere? – Barry Carter Sep 17 '18 at 15:07
