  • Aficionados of Dakar enjoy this beach. There is music. Vendors offer peanuts, doughnuts, fruit. C is nice, sometimes they are a little sticky c is the custom in Senegal but still nice. Often the surfers and student of the surf schools are there. It is here that most take their first waves. You can to more comfort rent sun loungers and enjoy grilled fish. Parking is guarded. Short c is nice.

  • Beach central but not the best in the area (prefer Yoff). Beautiful sunset. The people of the area, is including many ex-Pats. There is a lifeguard to 19 hours. Long street vendor
