M’bour excursion and the shellfish island

M’bour is a town located about 80 km south of Dakar and 5 km from the seaside resort of Saly. M’bour is a small and very lively town, with its spice, fabric and wood markets, but also with its gigantic fishing port. 250 fishermen return from several weeks at sea with their impressive catches, barracudas, sharks, red cape, etc …

This is where you will find the best memories to bring back with you.

The shellfish island is located at the end of the Petite-Côte, south-east of Dakar. It actually includes two villages, Joal the largest, established on the coast, and Fadiouth, an artificial island consisting of piles of shells and connected to the coast by a wooden bridge.
