The Ébrié Lagoon lies in Côte d'Ivoire, separated for almost all of its length from the Atlantic Ocean by a narrow coastal strip. The 100 km (60 mi) long lagoon is linked to the sea by the Vridi Canal, while the Comoë River flows into it. The lagoon averages 4 km (2½ mi) in width, and 5 m (16 ft) in depth. Abidjan and towns such as Grand Bassam, Bingerville, Jacqueville, Attécoubé, and Tiagba lie on the lagoon.
