So I didn't go down to the mosque, I stopped on my way to the airport to view it from the bridge. It's beautiful, I'll encourage folks to actually explore it. I will on my next visit.

My taxi-driver stopped here as well but I did not go inside but the mosque looks beautiful. There is no need to be muslim or even religious If you have time go for it. A mosque in front of a beach.
