Hann Bel-Air is a commune d'arrondissement of the city of Dakar, Senegal.


The Arrondissement comprises both the neighbourhoods of Bel-Air and Hann. Bel-Air, to the south, is the rocky plateau which juts east into the bay away from the city centre. It lays directly north of the Port of Dakar. Hann, a crescent of low beach as Cap Vert turns to the east, was a fishing village that has become a major industrial site. It also includes Hann Park and Zoological gardens.[1]


To the south is the Dakar city Centre, Plateau, and the Port of Dakar. To the west is the HLM and Grand Yoff neighbourhoods. To the north is Patte d'Oie and to the northeast, Niayes. As of 2007 the arrondissement had a population of 40,246.
